Sharon's Bride Doll

A note from Sharon on Monday 28th February 2005

I was in Cairns city the other day and walked past Kornbys Antiques
And there it was - sitting in the window!!
A doll like my bride doll 'Beverly'

I went in a spoke to the lady and had a close look and to me it looked to be exactly the same
The price tag? - $450.00!!
I came home and told the story so Geoff went through all the boxes in the wardrobes
and got 'Beverly' out - and she now spends her time sitting on the bed!!
I cannot remember what happened to her bride's dress,
and in some of the photos she is wearing an outfit made by my Mum

Another note from Sharon on Saturday 30th September 2006

I received Beverly for Christmas one year
She was my much wished for Bride Doll
I was probably about six or seven years old
Even though she is a 1950's doll,
I doubt I would have been younger than six when I received her
That makes her at least fourty-four years old
The hair she has now is not original
I think Fiona cut it!! - and I remember my Dad gluing on her new hair!!


Photos - in different outfits

Blue skirt and white blouse - this outfit was made by Sharon's Mother

Pink dress and bonnet -

As you would have seen from the "Hospital Notes" above,
Beverly needed 'surgery' to her face and a few other 'bits' fixed
Her cheeks, lips and eyebrows have been redone,
plus her walking mechanism has been repaired
She also has a new wig and a new 'mama' box
Sharon is very, very happy with the result!!!
