Natalia, femme Fatale


I saw this doll online, offered by a seller who incorrectly described her as a Silkstone Barbie. I recognized this doll's face as made by Integrity Toys, but didn't know who she was.

The picture on the sales page was blurry, so I thought maybe she was a hybrid of a FR head and a Silkstone body - if that's at all possible... The price was right and I liked her, so I bought her. Today she arrived and I did research.

It took quite some time, but finally I found information about this beauty in the archives of Mister Giuseppe. She's Natalia Fatalé "Light Strike" from the 2013 ITBE (Integrity Toys Basic Edition) collection and wears her original outfit.

No hybrid, no Silkstone body, she's just herself :-).

The sculpture is made by French artist Marcel-André Bouraine (1886-1948).
It represents Penthesilea, Queen of the Amazons.

  4. I agree with Kamelia...you did have great luck because she most certainly isn't a Barbie. And...she is simply gorgeous!!! I love how you posed her next to sculpture!

    1. Hello April, I did have great luck, she's so lovely. She's sitting next to me right now on my desk (without her shoes, which are Louboutin inspired, the soles are red!) and I simply love her :-). I'm glad you like the sculpture pictures! Thank you for visiting and your comment!

    1. Hello Arima, welcome! Penthesilea's sculpture has at least two versions. The sculptor made one with short hair too. Our sculpture is made of terracotta, but more common is the bronze version. Penthesilea's story is also intriguing :-).
