The Poodlecut Vogue Ginny Doll

In 1951 and 1952, some of the Ginny Dolls had a short curly wig. This wig was made of lambskin and was often referred to as "caracul" or "poodlecut". Vogue called this the pixie haircut and is said to have been named after Marcia Nelson, the granddaughter of Vogue founder Mrs. Jennie Graves. I have seen these wigs in blonde or different shades of red. Since a limited number of dolls had this curly wig, they are harder to find and highly sought after by Ginny collectors.
