in Hastings is a doll outfit maker. Mary O'Neill consulted her about the age of this doll outfit.
"Between 1945-1955, the green was the main color in the first NZ state houses. Unusual green dullish green, very nice. My first state house was green. The green usually had a cream edging around the edges in the kitchen cabinets and cupboards. A teapot doll and bathroom dolls are made to match the state housing colors", Mrs Batkins explained
