Welcome to another exciting segment of Vintage Thingies Thursday with Coloradolady.
Back in the 70's my late husband had a crush on Dolly Parton. We both enjoyed her and admired how she became a big star from meager means. Just for the fun of it, I bought him this doll. Told him that was as close as he would get to her. Since, he was not a "doll" playing person, the doll was never taken out of the box.
This doll is a vintage 12 inch Poseable Dolly Parton Doll in the original box. It was made in Hong Kong by (c) Goldberger Doll Mfg. Co., Inc. of Brooklyn, N.Y. She is dressed in the original red outfit and still strapped in the box and attached to factory cardboard insert. Her little red shoes are still sealed in a plastic bag inside the box. Excellent condition.
The following picture was taken off E-Bay. It is the same doll I have and in the same great unused condition. The asking price on it was $249 plus shipping. Well, I nearly fell out of my chair. However, in reality, nothing is worth more than what someone is willing to pay for it. I doubt many would pay that for this doll. I have decided I might better seal her up for preservation.
