Uneeda’s posable Dollikin is their most well-known glamour girl, but they used the same head mold to make other dolls without all the extra joints, including the ones pictured here and the Mother from the Wee Three set.

Body Construction
These 19″ dolls have a rigid vinyl body with softer vinyl head. They are jointed at the neck, shoulders and hips. Some, like the bride doll pictured above, are also jointed at the waist. They have sleep eyes with brush lashes, and painted lashes underneath each eye. They have unpainted nails. The glamour dolls came in a variety of haircolors, including carrot red, and in various styles, including the short bob shown on these dolls, and an updo with spit curl.

These dolls are marked “UNEEDA/2S” on the back of their heads below the hairline. This is the same marking as seen on the Dollikin heads.

These dolls came dressed in a variety of outfits. The bride doll is wearing an ivory satin wedding gown with unusual cowl neckline, trimmed with a ruffle of tulle. Two layers of tulle over the skirt give it volume. She wears satin full-length mitts and carries a small bouquet of simple white fabric flowers with satin streamers. Her veil is lace with a satin ribbon bow pinned to the back. She also wears drop pearl earrings, white nylon panties and white plastic heels.
The doll pictured above wears a lavender and white striped dress made of a silky taffeta, and she has a white satin ribbon bow at the neck. She also wears white nylon panties, pearl drop earrings and white plastic heels.

The box the striped dress doll came in is pictured with her. The bottom is turquoise heavy corrugated cardboard. On one end is printed “Beauty Quality/A Uneeda Doll/Since 1917” with space for the doll’s dress, eye, hair color and style number to be noted. “1202” is very lightly stamped as the style number. “COAP-122” is written in pencil, but whether this is original is unknown.
