Gorgeous Madame Alexander 20 Cissy Doll in Original Tagged Gown 1955. Cissy has a hard plastic socket head, torso and legs with jointing at hips and knees Her arms are vinyl with shoulder and elbow jointing. She has green with a hint of amber colored eyes, full lashes, auburn hair with curly bangs and full curls in the back. Her original hair net is still attached securing her curls.She has a flawless high color face paint and her sleep eyes work well. She is wearing an aqua blue satin gown with flared full skirt, capelet sleeves, sequin, sapphire and braid trim described in the 1955 catalog as "blue satin slyly kissed with rhinestone stars", lavender taffeta and tulle petticoat with blue satin edging, panties, stockings (Stockings and shoes have never been removed), silver sling heels, rhinestone bracelet (it has been repaired but, looks amazing) and ring.
She has her original coronet of dainty flowers on a silver frame. There may be a few flowers missing from the center of her coronet. The satin gown is tagged "Cissy" Alexander and is very rare to find with this original coronet.She has her original bands and all joints are secure with none loose. She poses and displays nicely. No hips or joint splits. A few minor flaws to mention. She has an extra dip of paint near her right eye. It looks to be a factory flaw. Please view the photo as it can be seen. Not at all noticeable when displayed but, I try to mention all important details. There are some faint discolorations on her left wrist under her bracelet from her bracelet. It may be removable with cleaning. The elastic on her petticoat is stretched out. Her gown is amazing and all the stones are present.
At some point, her gown would benefit from a professional cleaning. Any and all discolorations due to age and storage are barely noticeable. The gown has had a few stitches repaired at a seam that had some loose. She has a few faint scuffs on her chest from the rhinestone brackets on her dress.
Cissy is absolutely dreamy and would be a crowning jewel in any doll collection. Please view all the photos provided as they are a large part of the description.
