Description of Doll for Sale

This is a stunning example of a vintage Toni Sophisticate doll made by the American Character doll company in 1958.  This vintage Toni is 14 inches tall.  Toni is wearing a very stylish original blue and white chiffon dress with a silver and blue hooded coat.  She has her original slip, panties and nylons.  Sadly she is missing her shoes. 

American Character took over production of Toni Sophisticate from Ideal in 1958.  The 14 inch size was produced for about a year and a half starting in 1958. By 1960 American Character had switched production to the 10 1/2 inch version of Toni making the 14 inch Toni doll hard to find in any condition.
