Lot 1263: 1962 Vintage BARBIE CASE & ORIGINAL WARDROBE Doll Clothes Accessories Snorkel Set Shoes Curlers Garter Belt (229 views)

1962 Vintage BARBIE CASE & ORIGINAL WARDROBE Doll Clothes Accessories Snorkel Set Shoes Curlers Garter Belt
Estimate: $70 - $200
Details: This vintage Barbie doll case is dated 1962, so it was manufactured not long after the Barbie doll was introduced in 1959. It's filled with vintage Barbie fashions, both with the Barbie label and without. (Some of the blouses and shorts have the Tammy label.) The doll clothes provide accurate reflections of the "Mad Men" era's period styles. Considering that these were mass-produced toys, these clothes show charming attention to detail, with complicated construction techniques and tailoring, and dress-maker finishing touches like ruffles, bows, decorative appliques, and fastenings (tiny little zippers!). Contents include twelve dresses, seven blouses, four skirts, two pants, three shorts, three scarves, four hats (including one mortarboard), and a pair of pajamas. There are many accessories, including clothes hangars, a full set of snorkeling equipment, a picnic basket, a garter belt and stockings, fifteen pairs of shoes (and three single shoes), four purses, a tennis racket, comb, brush, curlers and hand mirror, a necklace, two suitcases (one missing its lid), eyeglasses, and one red mitten. There is no doll.
