Question About Vintage Barbie Doll Outfits with White Fur Stole
by Cathie Murphey
The Barbie gown from the early 1960's, called "Enchanted Evening", was sold with this white fur stole. Is anyone aware of this same fur stole being sold in combination with any other Barbie outfits during the same time period?
Hi Cathie -
Gay Parisienne #964 (1959) and Junior Prom
each had a white stole, but they were lined in white satin. The only other item that included this stole was a Fashion Pak from 1962 called "Fur Stole with Bag" that also had gold clutch purse.

Question about Barbie white rabbit fur stole
I have a Barbie white fur with the pink lining. I know there are Barbie white furs with a white lining. I am wondering if you can tell me what the difference is between the two and why the white lining seems to have a higher value. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
Hi Pat -
The white fur stole with white lining was included with Gay Parisienne #964 (1959) (which was only made in 1959 and was one of Barbie's very first ensembles) and also Junior Prom #1614 (1965), so it is much rarer and therefore more valuable.
The white fur stole with pink satin lining was from Enchanted Evening #983 (1960-1963) and also a Fashion Pak item from 1962 called "Fur Stole with Bag" that also had gold clutch purse. They are much more common and easier to find.
Question About VIntage Barbie Gay Parisienne White Fur Stole
Did the white fur with white lining ever have a label in it that had TM? My Gay Parisienne outfit has the white fur with white lining and a TM label. On Ebay there is Gay Parisienne oufit and the owner states that there never was a white fur with white lining for Gay Parisienne with a TM label. Is this true?
Question about white fur stole for Gay Parisienne

I am trying to find out if the fur stole for Gay Parisienne is supposed to have a Barbie label or not.
Hi Elizabeth -
It has always been my understanding that the White Fur Stole for Gay Parisienne #964 (1959) did not have a tag. In Vintage Barbie Doll ensembles, only one item is tagged. In Gay Parisienne, the tag was located in the dress.
Junior Prom #1614 (1965) also had an untagged white fur stole with white satin lining.
Which brings the question where do the tagged, white lined white fur stoles come from? My understanding is that the Pak fur stole from "Fur Stole with Bag" (1962 - 1963) was lined with pink satin. I see on two of the three vintage, complete Gay Parisienne listings currently on eBay, they have tagged stoles, BUT the tags have the (R) AND Barbie tags from 1959 should have the TM & not the (R) after Barbie's name - so now I am confused as well. Is there anyone who can clear this up for us?
