The Polly Pond's Bride Doll is 24" tall, with a stuffed vinyl body and soft vinyl head. Her lovely creamy skin tone suits her role as an advertising doll for Pond's Cold Cream. She is jointed only at the neck. There is some type of rigid cylindrical (possibly metal) piece inside her neck which prevents her head from flopping over. She has blue sleep eyes with brush lashes, and three painted lashes above the outer corner of each eye. Her rooted blonde hair is style in a short curly bubble cut. Her fingernails are painted red, but her toenails are bare. This doll does not have earring holes.
This doll is completely unmarked.
She wears a long sleeved bridal gown of white taffeta and net with silver threads running through it, trimmed with silver lace; a petticoat of a sort of stiff cheesecloth type fabric which ties at the back; white knit panties; and white plastic heels. On her head she wears a veil made from a circle of white net trimmed with white lace. She carries a bouquet of lilies-of-the-valley. Her dress is untagged, and is fastened at the back with safety pins - no snaps, buttons or other fasteners appear to have been used.
The Polly Pond's Bride Doll comes packaged in a white corrugated cardboard box with red printing. She comes with a little booklet extolling her virtues. It has a price of $21.95, which seems an exorbitant amount for what is actually a cheaply made doll. The box also advertises a Polly Pond's Bridesmaid Doll. Click here to see a photo of the box.
