Doug’s Comments: We fought to use the best fabrics and to include detailed and imaginative accessories. The outfits range from the creative and fanciful to what some may refer to as “whacky” in a fun way. They were a delight to work on. I, of course, had to set a number of them aside.

Item #88. Prima Donna Cara Doll in Afrikan Art. CED Fashion Doll. Prototype. $189.00 SOLD


Doug’s Comments: The Prima Donna Cara was the very first Cara doll with a rather small edition size. We were really happy with her fine and soft face paint with coral lips and her beautifully rooted dark brunette hair. The African Art outfit was also part of the very first collection making them a good pairing.

Description: This Prima Dona Cara doll is wearing a complete African Art outfit. A sheath dress of burgundy colored wool and silk shantung with a matching jacket of burgundy colored wool, fully lined. The jacket finishes with a matching belt with gold buckle. Accessories are: silk petal hat in a 1960’s style, matching wool stole, taupe leather pumps, gold jewelry and red hand bag. The gold tone African mask on museum style stand is what gives the outfit it’s name. Her dress, earrings, necklace, hose, leather pumps, jacket, stole, leather clutch bag, African mask and stand are all included. The tailoring of this outfit was always one of my favorite things.




Item #91. Daisy doll wearing Trafalgar Square outfit complete in signed box. $49.00 SOLD

Doug’s Comments: Daisy has the light moca skin tone with cream colored eye shadow and soft rose colored lips. Her outfit is from the very first year of Willow and Daisy. We fought to use the best fabrics and to include detailed and imaginative accessories. Their outfits range from the creative and fanciful to what some may refer to as “whacky” in a fun way. Regardless, they were a joy to work on. I, of course, had to set a number of them aside.
