Peggy Nisbet made a number of dolls of various actors and actresses, but a dolly Marilyn Monroe was never released.
We know of only two examples of prototypes for this stunning doll - and pictures of both are here for you to see. Prototype no. 1 is in our collection, and prototype no. 2 appears courtesy of our collector friend Alice.
We don't know how many prototypes were made, and we don't know why this fascinating doll was never put into production - What a great pity for collectors everywhere.
These are no ordinary dolls - they have an aura of glamour, and we think they have captured the mystique of the wonderful Marilyn Monroe in a way that far surpasses a simple plastic doll. But we are biased. Have a look at the pictures - What do you think? Would you have liked to have Marilyn in your collection?
