Black 19-inch Tiffany Taylor by Ideal has box dates of 1975 and 1974. She has rooted hair that changes colors when the top of her head is turned. Tiffany's eyes are brown and she has rooted eyelashes. Her fashion consists of a gold lamé body suit with detachable full-length lime green skirt and lime green mules.
My boxed doll arrived when purchased during the late-1990s mint in box. Both versions of the doll (Black and white) use the same box. Description and box graphics, however, include only the white doll.

|One side panel of the box illustrates the white doll wearing only her gold lamé body suit and mules.|
|Blonde Tiffany Taylor is shown on the other side panel dressed in her complete fashion: gold lamé bodysuit and yellow full-length skirt.|
Several extra boxed fashions were available for Tiffany Taylor. One can be seen here. The back of the boxed fashion includes black and white illustrations of others. My first Tiffany Taylor, shown below, that was purchased without a box, is dressed in another original Tiffany Taylor fashion.*

The 11-1/2-inch Taylor Jones (friend of Tuesday Taylor) has a box date of 1976. She wears an orange and white knit dress with white mules. Like Tiffany, Taylor's hair changes from black to auburn by turning the top of her head. The auburn side has bangs. The black side has a middle part. There was at least one other boxed version of Taylor Jones dressed in a red gown.

This image found on Pinterest shows Taylor Jones and Tuesday Taylor (the white counterpart) modeling what were 30 new fashions for 1977 from three collections made for these and other 11-1/2 inch fashion dolls.
A compilation of 1970s commercials featuring Tiffany Taylor and Tuesday Taylor and available accessories does not feature or mention the Black dolls**. The compilation can be viewed below:
*On her website, Beth Colvin provides in-depth information on Tiffany Taylor, which includes photographs of several different fashions, images of the instruction booklet, and another box which is not commonly seen today that was used for the doll. Go here to view Beth's Tiffany Taylor page.
**Tuesday Taylor Super Model was available as Black and white (using the same name this time). Tuesday Taylor, Taylor Jones and Super Model Tuesday Taylor use the same head sculpt. Super Model wears a two-piece white pants suit with white shawl trimmed in hot pink fringe. Her Fashion Stepper allows her to "walk" and swing her arms and hips. Unlike Taylor Jones (and the original Tuesday Taylor) Tuesday Taylor Super Model has rooted hair that does not change colors. Photos of the Black version and her box, illustrating the white doll, are shown below.
