Product Details
Bradley Dolls were made in Japan. Bradley Import Co. was founded in 1954. They manufactured them for 30 years from 1954 until 1984 when the company was bought by Hasbro who discontinued the line. 

Bradley dolls were lightweight and constructed over a wire frame, covered in foam, with a stockinette body. Legs were long and thin, with hands featuring individual wired fingers. The faces were exactingly painted and they wore lavish wigs, made of a very silky synthetic often featuring sausage curls.

These ladies were produced in many different sizes and dressed in lavish frilly costumes, made of synthetic fabrics. They started out as inexpensive dolls, available at five and dimes, drug stores, and as prizes at county fairs,  Today well-preserved Bradley dolls are sought after by collectors for their delicate and unique beauty.

I lovingly hand-make each OOAK all-cloth art doll; each one special in its own way and so much fun to pose. I hope you'll find something here to put a smile on your face.
