- Vintage: circa 1950’s
- Details: This is a wonderful musical figurine. She is made of bisque porcelain and is wearing a green pinafore/smock dress with a great big bow in the back and a white blouse. She is holding a basket with a single orange rose. She has a matching green bow, blond hair, has dark eyes full of expression and pink rosy cheeks. The detail on this figurine is absolutely wonderful, you can see the ruffles on the hem of her dress, and how the dress flows so wonderfully from her waist, even the tiny ruffles on her blouse collar are very well done. The details on the rose petals, the basket weave, and that big bow in the back of her dress. Also, the hand painted face is just adorable. She is perfect, but we think the most wonderful thing about this piece is it plays La Vie en Rose!! That is a beautiful love song, and because it became so popular in the 1950’s we think this doll may be from that time. It looks like it had a label on the bottom but unfortunately it is long gone, we’re unable to find another like it to determine maker. A great gift for someone who loves the song, or for a figurine or music box collector.

La Vie en Rose is a song, written in 1945 and made famous by the popular French singer Edith Piaf. The song became very popular in the US in 1950 and many American singers recorded their own versions including: Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Louis Armstrong, Harry James and several others. The literal translation of the title is “The Life in Pink” but a better translation would be “Life in rosy hues”. There was a film made in 2007 called La Vie en Rose about the life of Edith Piaf.
