A big Thank You to Ann Willis for sharing her photographs and description of her wonderful Norah Wellings Norene Doll, she is model 3210 and was first seen in the 1940 catalogue and I have added a photo from the catalogue.
She is 32" and is dressed in a long skirt and matching blouse of cream satin. The top fastens with small mother of pearl buttons and has long sleeves which fasten with a popper. The skirt fastens at the back with a popper.
Under her skirt she has a hooped petticoat, a nylon vest and rather baggy cotton drawers.
She has a rust coloured needlecord jacket with a peplum and the long sleeves end in a v-shape. Her poke bonnet ties with a rust-coloured velvet ribbon
Her yellow felt shoes fasten with white-capped poppers and she has white socks, these seem a bit incongruous with the outfit.
She carries a basket over one arm.
Thank You Once Again Ann she is a Fabulous Doll in Wonderful Condition.
