Description From Sheryl Of Her Restoration

This Gorgeous Dol is a  1952-1953 Saucy Walker 22" Doll by: IDEAL Toy Corp. 

Her walking mechanism was taken apart by Dr. Hubby and works perfectly. She floats by simply holding her hand to walk her. Her head turns when she takes each step. 

Dr, Hubby has airbrushed this doll's body making her look brand new.  We put a scratch preventative plastic around her waist as you can see in her nude photos below. It can be easily removed. He blushed her cheeks and also applied the airbrushing eye shadow on her.  That always makes them look gorgeous.  He sprayed each blushing and eye shadow application several times with a flat clear sealer.

Her crier is mute at least for now?  I said that about one other doll and when she arrived at her New Mommy's home she was crying.  Not sure how that works.  It is always best not to want a new crier placed in a Saucy Walker Doll.  We have to split the torso in half to get it in place and then her value goes out the door as we then have to seal her back up.  Not good.  I have always said that the technology used in the criers belongs in a museum.  I have seen one cut in half and was very much amazed.  Anything could have caused them to become mute such as Bathtub playing or possibly the heat from storage.

She has the BEST eyes that Ideal EVER made because the weight is sitting on top of long white plastic pivot stems. These type eyes were not only the best they made but rare and they were the first ones they made for the early issue dolls in 1951.  The later models toward mid decade was made very cheaply.  Sometimes new technology can sure cheapen a good thing.  No friction at all in the movement of her eyes,  Very, Very easy to see them move with very little effort.  

Our platforms to hopefully prevent any future eye rolling, sinking, or crossing has been installed.  The platforms have been accidentally tested by me and came out working like a charm.  We do not guarantee them past our front door because we have no idea how she is handled once she leaves here. Her eyes have been machine polished and we always clamp the eyes back into place.  We ordered a special tool long ago to help me do just that through a tiny neck opening.  Her lashes are wonderful as you can see.

She is our first doll that we now are using the Rayon socks from Spain on.  In all our years we have never been able to do that.  These socks are the most identical socks to the original rayon from Spain Saucy Walker Socks we have ever found.

Her white vinyl shoes are from IDEAL TORY CORP...however because they are so very harcd to find we had to repair one of them by sewing and gluing a strap on the left shoe.  I decided it was better to do that with a valuable shoe than to put a pair of Fairyland shoes on her.

Her dress is a half replication by our famous seamstress Lois Pearson (toniwear@aol.com)   I love the two layer dresses.  She tags all of her doll clothing also.  The dress has a cotton attached slip like Ideal made for their Saucy Walker Dolls and also a Onesie to match the cotton slip.

We have had only three dolls in all these years and in a row lately that have the thick bangs as this one does. We feel that IDEAL had no set rules on testing the market with different looks from time to time.  Each of the three dolls still had the original set braids from the factory.  Evidentially the child was not allowed to unbraid the hair, not to mention cutting the hair.

This Doll today that we are listing has bangs too thick for banana bangs if they were as long as the banana bangs usually are. When we got her the bangs had the original curls but were relaxed too much from 50 years of storage. So we shampooed the hair and refreshed the curls. Her hair bows are double sided satin and we have stiffened them for display. 

Here is a doll directly below that we sold that was our number one of the three...instead of the curls we decided to brush them out and wow, we should have left the bangs as she came to us in her original hairdo.  This dolls original bangs (before we brushed them out) were exactly like we have styled the last two dolls out of the three.  The one we are listing today is our third and last doll with So far to us has been the rare bangs.

From Judith Izen's Third Edition IDEAL DOLL Book: Showing A Saucy Walker With Thick Bangs And Curls.

Below is the First of three with the same type bangs:

Below is the second doll  with the same type bangs:

The one we are listing today is the third doll with the rare styled bangs.

She is a doll, although she glides as she walks, that is well deserving a display life from here on out.   Unless we know in advance to prepare one of our dolls for a child, we NEVER recommend our dolls be given to children.  These dolls are valuable and when a granddaughter is grown she will thank you for not passing the doll to her when she was a child

Thank you so much for your interest. We do hope you have enjoyed looking at this doll's precious face as much as we do.  We do love the 22" Saucy Walker...can you tell?

 

Just a Note From Sheryl:

Our pricing on the dolls we sell are as reasonable as we can make them keeping in mind all the days and hours and top notch supplies it takes to get the dolls like new.  I say this because many who might not know of our reputation and may not take this into consideration and somehow forget that we have had to also purchase the doll as well and the quality Saucy Walker is getting more expensive as the time passes.  We are the only ones who offer the things that we do such as our own invented eye platforms to prevent the rolling and sinking of the eyes that Saucy Walker dolls are so famous for doing after 50 years of storage.  A new doll stand has always been sent out with each of our dolls and the replica hang tag that in time is expensive as well. From our site we also offer Lay-a-way on many of them and/or the Hold Doll option.

We do not have Saucy Walker dolls for sale very often and when we do they sell fast however, we do not make a big enough profit to cover the time it takes to make the dolls like new and because the IDEAL Saucy Walker is gaining in value quickly, our cost for the doll is rising higher with each passing month. We ask that you consider this when you purchase your Saucy Walker elsewhere and you find that she is not in the best condition, just remember to contact us and we will be glad to assist you and do all the work to make her the way you expected her to be. Please see our new site at:  http://saucywalkerdollhospital.com or http://saucywalkersdollhospital.com.
