Littlest Angel

Another one of my favorite doll companies is VOGUE. They are the producers of "Ginny", one of the top sellers of her time.
These are candids of "Littlest Angel", an unknown, sweet faced doll. Redesigned in the seventies, she has been with us since the forties and fifties as a composition doll by the R&B Company.
R&B was sold to VOGUE in the late fifties and littlest angel continued to be marked R&B until sometime in the sixties. She seems to be a off shoot of "LIL IMP" which had candy red hair. Littlest Angel was designed to have childlike, impish , cheeky, young girl appearance that appealed to many buyers of the seventies.
I must say, if it weren't for knowing the doll manufacturer, I might have overlooked my doll. She is dressed in a tartan-like outfit, marked Vogue, and is missing her shoes. She sure does have a elfish, impish, cutesy air about her.
My doll isn't played with. She has very silky hair and perfect clothing, no scuffs and/or marks. C & G Design.

It is amazing you know so much about the dolls. I agree she does have an impish expression.

She is cute with her chipmunk cheeks. Are the first 2 from a magazine and the other pics of your doll? The first 2 have different colored hair.

The first two are from a id site and the last one is mine.
Madame is in 3(!) shows that's all I know right now.
