I just bought a Japanese doll called Scarlet-chan from 1966 by
, I didn't know about this doll but saw the auction in Sweden and liked her looks and was the lucky winner of the doll. I have been looking her up and there's a lot to be found on flickr.
Here in Denmark I just came across another Japanese doll - a Takara doll - but this is more difficult to find anything about this doll, I really don't know who she is and how old she is so she may be newer than I usually collect but she is staying in my collection anyway. She is a Skipper size doll.
I just got a very cute doll marked Japan. She is 12½"/32 cm tall so taller than usual fashion dolls. I managed to find a dress that was a fit but she is broader than most of my fashion dolls so I don't have a lot of outfits for her. I found out that this may be a Sandy doll by Asakusa Toy 1965 but I'm not quite sure, Sandy is supposed to be 12". And I found another Sandy that has the "right" size, so now the tall one is a bit of a mystery doll.
I have taken a shine to Japanese dolls and got a couple of other dolls now.
