Vintage Dawn dolls, Majolica,Fitz & Floyd finds!

I acquired recently a lot of vintage Topper Dawn dolls with some clothing lots. Topper Dawn and her friends were miniature 6 1/2 inch fashion dolls from the late 1960's to the middle of the 70's ending with Pippa and the Flower girls. I played with some and sometimes actually preferred them to my Barbies since I could put them in my purse as a child and take them with me. My mother loved them because they didn't take up alot of room and when I first had my first dollhouse- they worked with 1:12 scale furniture quite well. I acquired some of these dolls recently and now have them up for auction. They are lovely and their bodies are not loose, face paints are bright and bold, eyelashes intact and all wear panties. Up for auction currently are Classic Dawn, Longlocks, Jessica as a stewardess, Glori and dancing Angie. There are two clothing lots- one a complete Town n' Tailored fashion, the other clothing & shoe lot. Check out the auctions HERE

I also recently acquired a beautiful Fitz and Floyd gravy boat /pitcher with drip plate with 'Hawthorne' ont he bottom of its id- I estimate this is from the middle 70's- excellent condition. I could not identify the pattern of berries, pine and autumn raised leaves on it. 
I also in this same time acquired a Majolica Portieux Vallysthral cup and saucer, with a strawberry blossom & berry raised leaf design on it. It has the imperfections in the ceramics and glaze with Majolica, and only one chip near the handle, in tact otherwise. Beautiful piece to add to your collection!
Also, dont' forget about alot of my miniature food auctions which will be ending soon too!
