Gene Marshall Doll "Midnight Gamble" # V01553 is a sleek sheath of navy blue crepe lined in white knit. Three pleats of Prussian blue silk highlight the bodice, draping from a knot into sashes accented with silver metallic embroidery, sequins and beads. The trapeze-style jacket is of matching blue silk, with white patterned silk lining, inverted back pleat, and three-quarter length sleeves with cuffs. Hand-embellished with sequins, beads and silver metallic embroidery, it includes gloves, silver shoes and earrings. Circa 1953. Designer: Doug James

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Talented artist and illustrator Mel Odom's Gene Marshall doll debuted in 1995. Collecting Gene was the next step for many collectors of contemporary Barbie dolls. Gene was meticulously manufactured by the well-established Ashton-Drake Gallery in a hard vinyl with a porcelain texture. Gene's statuesque 15 ½" provided a fabulous canvas for stunning and detailed fashions. Her amazing wardrobe played a starring role in Gene's immediate success. With the storyline of a Hollywood starlet with a circle of friends and rivals, set in the dramatic (and fashionable) 1930's/1940's era, Gene encouraged collectors to "Share the Dream".
