Yes, that's her. She is gorgeous!! So many prototypes that never made it to
production and that's a real shame. We could use some of the stunning dolls that were the norm only a couple of decades ago.
This one (I have her tea cup but it's not in this photo) is, I think, the one you're talking about.
I'm not sure how true that rumor is but in the early 2000s word of their existence was floating around quite a bit. Not to mention that back then, Mattel was making a lot more collector prototypes than they do now. That yellow version of Tangerine Twist (Lemon Twist?) that appears in the background of a Carol Spencer or Kitty Black Perkins (can't remember which one) interview in the the Barbie episode of "The Toys that Made Us" is particularly divine. Wish that one had been made. I like the orange one, but that lemon yellow? Perfection!
So I think it's possible the green and yellow ones might exist in prototype fashion. If nothing else, I know that Robert Best's original concept sketches do.
the Wedgwood dolls and yellow would be sublime! Spacing on the name of the mint green one.
I have no idea but if they do exist, I'd like to see them some day. I'd also have like it if they were produced.
At the Queen City show last month, I was able to find one of the dolls I sold off years ago – the second Wedgewood Barbie. Ed bought her back for me because I was having trouble deciding between and another doll that I had also sold.
I also wish I still had my AA version of her, as I think she wears the gown a little bit better, but I’ll get her again in time. The first Wedgewood in blue is around here somewhere so maybe when I get all three back together again, I’ll do a group photo.
Until then, here she is. Designed by Robert Best and released in 2001, she’s finally back in my collection.
