Ben is a BII studio with a “B” type body which is a five piece jointed body. In the great reference book, “Sasha Dolls – The History” by Anne Votaw with Ann Chandler and Susanna Lewis, it explains the B-Body was made from 1944-1968. Ben’s handsome face is made of gypsum. It is facemask type II so Ben is a BII Studio doll.
This photo is a bit out of focus so please excuse. Sweet Ben came wearing this outfit made from Sasha patterns by the original Swiss owner. The red overalls are very well made with attractive top stitching. His gray shirt has a nice ricrac trimming and he has woolen socks and black felt shoes. Don’t miss his handy hankerchief in his left pocket 🙂
Another close view of Ben’s face. He has a very nice and full human hair wig. It is a challenge to photograph Ben because the light reflects off of the surface. I hope you can see him clearly and I will be taking more photos of Ben outdoors very soon.
