Revlon Deb Doll in one of the extra boxed outfits that were available. This gown was also sold in an aqua version.
Toward the end of production the 15″, 18″ and 20″ Revlon Dolls by Ideal were also sold in a black and white lace-print teddy with black satin ribbon straps. These are called “Deb” dolls. An 18″ doll was sold in a very rare lavender gingham two piece swimsuit. Evening gowns and day dresses were sold separately to dress them in. The gowns are very rare. Some of these extra boxed outfits have the Revlon banner tag on the front of the dress like the dressed dolls, but not all.
