Description of Doll for Sale

This is a great example of an early hard plastic 14 inch tall Mary Hoyer doll.  This vintage Mary Hoyer is the earliest version in painted hard plastic from the 50's.  Later dolls used colored hard plastic and didn't need to be painted.  Mary Hoyer is wearing a vintage factory made dress likely also from the 50's.  The dress is definitely factory made but is untagged.  I could not find any documentation for this dress being made by by the Mary Hoyer company.  The doll also has a vintage factory wig.  Mary Hoyer is also missing one of her shoes.
