It’s been a while since my last posting, but that doesn’t mean I haven ‘t been busy with doll business! Today I’m going to show you a unique and rare doll. This is Mamzelle de Paris, and she is a reproduction of a French doll from the 1960’s. Created after the illustrations of Edmund Kiraz, the original vintage doll was called La Parisienne de Kiraz. A vintage Kiraz doll is almost impossible to find, but happily for us, a reproduction doll was recently created and made available in very limited quantities. Have a look at the Mamzelle de Paris website to find out the latest info.
Mamzelle de Paris is about 11 inches tall. Her unique proportions prevent her from sharing clothes with almost any other doll (although you might have luck with vintage Ideal’s Fashion Flatsy….I’m only guessing). She has long legs and a tiny bust, so she is the perfect muse for lots of 60’s fashion. Here are a few things I’ve done for her:
Does anyone have an original Kiraz doll? Does anyone have one of the amazing reproduction Mamzelle de Paris dolls?
