Movy Dolls, 1920

A reproduction of a well-known series, Movy Dolls. The illustrations by Percy Reeves are a cut above the usual for this kind of celebrity series (compare to the previous Douglas Fairbanks I posted).

Reeves' Jumbo Movy Dolls are larger, and just as gorgeous (I want to guess and say about 12 to 16 inches tall, but not sure--I have seen these at conventions in the past). Here's an image of actress Lila Lee, captured from the internet a couple of years ago:


  1. Yes, yes, these are the ones I've longed for. Tried years ago on eBay but was outbid. Gave up and haven't tried again. Too rich for my blood. Thanks for posting these.

  2. I have a Charlie Chaplin page of Movy dols. Do you have any idea what it might be worth?
