The P. F. Volland Company produced their version of the Beloved Belindy character doll from 1926 until 1933.
Molly-'Es Doll Outfitters thought of adding Beloved Belindy to their line of dolls in 1935,
however only a prototype is documented.
I have personally seen one black and white photo and have seen no documentation
on the size or fabric colors used for this prototype.
Molly-'Es "prototype" Belindy
She has the multi-striped legs, as do all of the Molly-'Es Raggedies .
Assuming that she has the blue fabric feet & daisy-print fabric like those of the Molly-'Es Raggedies .........
In creating my "replica", I chose a yellow/blue daisy print skirt fabric with matching blue bandana ,blouse &feet.
Recently this unusual belindy was up for auction on eBay....it looks very professionally made, and I wondered if it might be a Molly-'Es, however...it is not in keeping with her multi-striped legs and her blue feet she was so well known for.
It also does not look very much like the "proto-type" pictured above.
Notice the side-facing feet............ Hmmmmmm..... Food for thought???
Soon pictures of MY OWN re-creations of "Molly-'Es Beloved Belindy" will be displayed here.
