Here, for your consideration is one of the most beautiful dolls I have ever seen. This is a 20 inch Cissy from 1955, based on the information in my book.
She is called "Blue Waltz". Her gown is Blue heavy slipper satin with silver braid and "sapphire" accents. I just realized I see where one rhinestone is missing, but you can't really tell unless you pick the fabric up and inspect it closely. I suppose it could be replaced. LOL Her gown has capped sleeves and is design detailed.She is wearing her matching slip with netting layers trimmed with satin ribbon. She is wearing panties, back seamed stockings and she will bring her original strappy heels. I put them in a little plastic bag and tied them to her arm, for fear of losing them.
The elastic is stretched out, as so many of them are. In my opinion, she is drop dead gorgeous. She has a little white feather fan, but I do believe it is a replacement, as is her beautiful bandeau hat which seems to be a lovely copy of the original one.
Notice the blue showing in her eyes. Based on everything I have been told and have learned, this is the original doll in her original gown with matching slip. Cissy does not appear to have any crotch cracks or knee cracks.
She seems to have all her eyelashes and her face paint is just beautiful. Her coloring all over is just lovely, in my opinion. Now, there are some stains on the dress, not bad in my opinion, but I want to mention them. I took a picture of the ones on the back of her gown. In my opinion, they are not noticeable anywhere when she is on display, but you have to look closely to see them.They kind of disappear in the folds of that beautiful satin. Her hair appears to me to be mostly in the original set. Oh yes, I just noticed you can see a small amount of the wig cap through her "hair" if you look closely. I really don't know her history. This is the way she came to me. She isn't absolutely perfect, but she is absolutely gorgeous in my opinion. That is all I know to tell you right now.
