The Reliable Toy Company Limited of Toronto, Canada was founded by Solomon Frank S. F. Samuels in 1920 and had a long history of making good quality doll products.
From 1922 to 1955 Reliable began producing their own composition dolls. They are probably best known for their Canadian style Indians and Mounties dolls, they also licensed molds for other well known USA doll manufacturer's, like the Ideal Toy Company, Shirley Temple doll of which they produced their own version, that was not licensed for export to the USA. 1953 Reliable Coronation Dolls, 8, 11, 12, 15, 16" tall, all plastic, jointed at neck and shoulders, the 8" tall doll has straight non-moving legs, the other sizes have jointed bodies, some were walkers, mohair or saran wig with tiara, dressed in white satin gown with gold trim, coronation robe, and ribbon sash and were meant to celebrate and commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
