If you collect these wonderful small dolls from long ago, you know it's a huge challenge to find authentic footwear for them. That makes this group from one estate a great find. Included are ice skates and roller skates from the Ginny line by Vogue Dolls, plus pretty pink ballet slippers from Madame Alexander and red cowgirl boots that I can't identify for sure. All will fit both Ginny and the Alexanderkins.

The things are in reasonably nice condition, considering that they're toys 60 years old. The white ice skates could use a gentle cleaning, the slippers need their ribbons reattached and the boots have frayed edges that a trim with sharp manicure scissors should take care of neatly. You may also want to clean the rust off the roller skate wheels, using sandpaper or a suitable polish, but I personally enjoy the patina. With the footwear comes a round carrier box that held one pair of skates, when new; it's rather battered now, but good to have.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
