Vintage "Hong Kong Lilli" Barbie Clone Doll, late 1950s - Excellent Condition. This is a vintage clone doll of the German doll, Bild Lilli, that inspired the original Barbie. The dolls are often referred to as "Hong Kong Lilli" because these clones were made in Hong Kong. The Bild Lilli doll clone was made in Hong Kong first by Dura-Fam, Ltd.The dolls are marked Hong Kong with the letter "F" in a square, which is the exact marking found on this doll's back, just above her waist. The doll has thin arching eyebrows, heavy black eye makeup, a downward sideways glance, eyes with white pupils, red lipstick and a blonde ponytail.
All the face paint is in excellent condition and was not re-touched. Her face and body are made of hard, hollow plastic. The body is in perfect condition, with no marks, cracks or stains.
She has molded-on black flower earrings, painted black. She has red painted finger nails; only one finger is missing its polish.
Her black high heels are painted on her feet. The back of her left shoe is missing some paint.
She has holes in the bottom of her feet for her original stand. The original head on Lilli was made in two pieces in order to insert the mohair ponytail from the back. This doll's head is constructed the same way. She is missing some hair under her pony tail (see last photo) but that area is hidden when the pony tail is in place.You can see from the photo, the two piece construction of the head. Unlike Barbie, the arms, legs and head of Lilli and this Hong Kong Lilli doll are strung.
This doll's limbs are loose, but she can still hold a pose. The velvet gown is handmade and not her original outfit. The gown and the stand are included. She is a very elegant and unique doll in beautiful condition!
