From the well-kept collection of a meticulous Doll collector: Miss Gene Marshall in "Blissful Bath" by Mel Odom. This set and ensemble are extremely exclusive because everything except for Gene Marshall, the doll (and doll stand) was handmade by my aunt! Miss Gene Marshall in "Blissful Bath" has been professionally styled specifically for this set and ensemble.
Her shiny, strawberry blonde hair is in a casual updo with side swept bangs and a matching cornflower blue ribbon tied in a bow, very stylish for this era. Miss Marshall wears something designed to be useful as well as stylish... In other words, she is just finishing up in the bathtub and so wraps herself in her cornflower blue towel with white edging and her own initial embroidered on the front. This isn't just any towel, it has a snap at the top so that it will not fall down as Miss Marshall relaxes after her bath. There are two full sets of towels including two large towels, two hand towels, and two washcloths.They all hang on a towel bar right off the edge of Gene's bathtub, (which is painted ivory and decorated on the outside with patterned crystals). Gene also wears new slip-on, white, sparkly heeled slippers with matching blue bows on top of each one. And just to make herself feel complete, and put the finishing touch on her look, she wears matching blue beaded earrings. The following accessories are also included in this lot with Miss Gene Marshall.
Glass and crystal beads (for bubble bath). "Black Ribbon" script with Gene's notes. Three bottles of three different toiletries. Bathroom mirror with matching ribbon hanger.
New story card and certificate of authenticity are included in this lot! Miss Gene Marshall was simply exhausted after a full day and night of shooting. It was now 3:00 a.And she was thankful that the studio had provided her with a chauffeur and car. She had won the starring role in "Personal Secretary" but the film was going a little over budget and taking a little bit too long to shoot... So everyone from cast member to crewmate was working overtime.
Gene was in practically every scene, and so she must be available at all times and ready to work. But they all knew it would be worth all the long work hours when the film finally premiered! As Gene walked in her home, she immediately shook her shoes off.
And gosh that felt good! The spring was starting to warm into summer, making her feel thirstier than usual. She headed for the bar and opened the mini fridge to get her favorite drink, a little mini Coket. She took it with her shedding her clothes along the hallway until she reached her sumptuous bathroom with the clawfoot bathtub she loved.
She quickly turned on the taps and set her bath tray over the foot of the tub. Then she added some bath salts and bubble bath gel to the water.Then she set what she would need while she was in the bath on her bath tray... Her Coke, washcloth, a script synopsis for reading, and checking... And the toiletries she would need while she was soaking.
And then, with her scrubby in hand, it was time to get into the tub. This beautiful bath relaxed her immediately, and she was able to let go of her worries about the film and focus on how well her career was going... She almost dozed off she felt so comfortable, and the water temperature was just perfect. But before she fell asleep in the bath, she knew she should get out and get to bed since tomorrow would be starting early again. It was wonderful to feel so clean and relaxed, and Gene swathed herself in her towel with her initial on it that she could wear as a makeshift dress by snapping it, after she dried off!She put on her matching healed slippers, and sat on the edge of the tub relaxing for a moment more before heading to bed. Such is the life for the movie star she had become... She smiled, thinking to herself, what a blissful bath... Then she climbed into bed and immediately fell fast asleep.
Gene comes in her original White Ashton Drake box. Gene's doll stand is included. All other accessories will be packed with Gene's original box in a larger container with packing materials.Bonus: as an added delight, Gene's hand painted stained glass Iris patterned lamp which throws different hues around the room while also lighting the area, is included with this lot. The base of the lamp is a beautiful green crystal glass. The lamp is easily operated. It contains a magnet inside on which the bulb sits. Simply remove the bulb twist to the right and bulb will light. Then simply drop back in to lamp from the top, and the magnet will keep it in place. The light is new, and these batteries will last for approximately 6 hours of use.
Then batteries will need to be replaced, but this lamp can be lit for many years to come. Side note: if you put her bath in direct sunlight, the crystals will throw rainbows all over the place!
