Bwanna;
I thought the tech doll was  real bargain. I wasn't sure if you wanted the operator, but it goes with the set.

GPO;
Yes this is for Donna.
D/P

I finally got tracking confirmation, the phone is in the system on it's way to me.
It might seem dumb to some, but this is a real highlight for me. Priceless, and not in monetary terms.

the whole story is priceless :)

i think the the dolls are way cool, too. i think there are 14 of them. i would like to have one in each outfit.
these would sell well in my antique booth also. if anybody sees any more at a good price, i'd buy it.

http://us10-31antiques.com   this is the antique mall. i built the website. i know i posted the link in another thread. but i am shameless,  :o   the more hits the site gets, the higher it will appear on the various search engines :)

To see you happy, is just as important to me as my win.
I love to see people get things they really want.

I will keep looking for more.
Now you have the brunette, the Blond, and the early operator. Right.

I think there are 4 gals w/ 4 outfits. The black girl was only avaliable in the latest fashions. I am thinking 2 dolls.

I would do a search for "telephone pioneer" e-stores.  You would be surprised at some of the old stock that some of the stores have. The pioneers were the ones who commissioned the dolls.

thank you d/p. yes, those i are the dolls. i just won the operator last night.

jim, this is what i know about the dolls so far:

they came in 2 sizes - 15" &  12".
3 different boxes.
2 face styles. one w/crazy blue eyeshadow, the other subtle eyeliner
4 outfits...1890 operator, 1950 operator, tech w/blue jacket, tech w/gray jacket
3 hair colors..blond, brunette, auburn plus a black doll

this craiglist ad shows 3 boxes, 2 sizes, 2 face styles & 3 outfits
http://tinyurl.com/ylfod4d

this is from the pioneers store. shows the 1950 operator. all dolls are listed as being 12" tall
http://tinyurl.com/yjtwzj5

the two tech dolls that i have are 15" tall w/ 1982 stamped in their necks. one came w/ the pink box shown in the craiglist ad. the ebay description for the operator i just bought says she is 15' tall & dated 1981. the box pictured has the same lableling as the pink box, but it is blue.

my guess is the box that displays the bell emblem were prior de-regulation. this still does not give me a clear idea on what the entire collection would consist of. so i will continue my research. ;D
