Here is a comparison of both the 13-inch and 18-inch Sonja as skiers. This Sonja was created by Sara Goldsmith in 1947. 76 SUMMER 2020 and ski costumes were based on those Sonja wore in her movies and made of the finest silks, satins, taffetas and velvets trimmed in sequins, braids and marabou. She came in a wedding dress as well. She was in production between 1939 and 1942 and was a big feature for Christmas 1939. Life magazine did a pictorial on the doll featuring her variety of costumes. The doll could be bought in a travel case with several of the outfits. Except for a few photos of Sonja carrying the doll around with her at a 1940 Hollywood social event it does not seem that she made a formal portrait sitting with the doll but she appeared to be pleased with it.
