Queen for a Day
This doll was acquired at the same yard sale as the Unmarked Oilcloth, Colonial Dame and Unmarked Wood & Bisque. It is a composition doll that needed to be restrung. The elastic band for the head and legs was missing and the elastic band for the arms was present but deteriorated and broken. The arms were held in place because the broken band had hardened into shape with age. The doll itself is very simplistic and generic - so that it could portray dozens of figures. This doll is all about displaying elaborate clothing. In this case, the doll is wearing the costuming associated with the radio and television game show "Queen for a Day" that aired from 1945-1964 (Wikipedia).
