Floozies...


The Girls...


These are really German half dolls, 
made of porcelain...
 they are unusual, because instead of molded hair,
they have mohair wigs.


And...
they are wearing only their corsets,
 and their hands are on their bosoms...

so yes... I renamed them
 Floozie dolls :-)


This one is my favorite...
the bigger the hair the better!


Here they are lined up...
like the Rockettes...
minus the mile long showgirl legs :-)

Don't you love the attitude,
on the second doll from the fronts face?

Today I am joining Cindy at My Romantic Home
for SHOW and TELL FRIDAY!




Thanks for stopping by,

They are great. I love how you have them lined up like the Rockettes! I wanted to be a rockette when I was a teenager!

Great collection.

LOL! Oh the hair! These gals definitely look like they've been around the block! (In the red light district wearing four-inch heels and a mini-skirt!!!) I'm new to blogging, I sure hope you'll check out my blog!

They are so cute and love the hair. Maybe they could just sing for us. Nothing like female voices in harmony.
Be a sweetie,

Lovely ladies. Looks like they all work at the same place...

These are SO fun! I have been trying to find some of these half dolls. every time I bid on one on ebay they get away from me....I will keep trying! I can see one of these as a pincushion with a french cotton skirt with lots of broderie anglaise lace! I have never seen them with mohair wigs, either! Still working on my blog connection....*grrrrrrr....
