Meet Rosebud

This is Rosebud on her metal bed with a couple of vintage doll quilts. She is 6.5" tall.

The bed is metal with the original paint.
I bought it vintage in about 1989. The kids had years of enjoyment with the bed and it was easy to pack so I kept it.

The doll quilts are also vintage. Simple shapes, squares and triangles. The bottom quilt is tied in multi colored threads.




I am looking for another English Rosebud Doll in the 'thumb sucker' baby style. (UPDATE FOUND). It is for a gift, and has to be the english original. Original packaging isn't needed. The dolls are circa 1950's.

The back of the doll torso is marked:
Rosebud
Made In England

Of course, a doll gift will need a doll quilt in vintage fabrics!
Have a great week,
Dawn

  10. So sweet! And a little bed and quilts to go with her. I think each of us had a soft spot for one particular doll. Mine was Ginny and her blue trunk which I still have.
