21-inch Madame Alexander Carmen from the Portrait doll Ladies of Fashion series first made in 1938 and again in post-war 1946. These dolls are famous for their hand-painted facial features: arched brows, black eyeliner, long painted lashes, blue eyeshadow above the eye and on the lids of the sleeping eyes and deep red lips. This lady also has a hand painted star beauty mark on her cheek. The dark brunette wig is styled with a thick braid atop her head and a bun at the nape of her neck.
She wears her all original costume of a red dress with black lace trim, light pink cotton petticoat and matching pantie. Shoes are a matching red fabric. Bead and gold hoop earrings and fabric roses attached to the dress accessorize her outfit. Her black, not net mantilla is missing.
The composition is in very good condition for one of these dolls which often have suffered over time. She only has fine craze lines on the face, some on the sides of the head, and deeper crazing on the leg. Some damage no repair, clean from a non-smoking environment.
