Madame Alexander Barbara Jane Doll 29 Rare 1952 Vinyl Stuffed Original Tagged
This is a very rare Madame Alexander Barbara Jane doll. Barbara Jane was made only during 1952. She is a 29 vinyl doll with a cloth body. Her limbs and her head are both stuffed, so she is a substantial doll. Barbara Jane is in very good to excellent vintage condition. Her face coloring is very bright and deep, and her brown sleep eyes have full lashes and work well. Her vinyl limbs are clean and unmarked, except for a tiny mark that look like it might have been caused by ink on her right arm, and another one on the outside of her right pinky finger. There are also dark marks that are about an inch long and half an inch wide on the back of both of her calves. These marks look exactly like bruises. Other than these small flaws, her body looks just about perfect. Her cloth torso is also clean and in excellent condition. She is wearing her complete, original tagged outfit, which consists of a red checked dress, a white linen pinafore with red rosettes pinned to the pockets, a full, white cotton slip and panties, rayon socks, and very cool, open-toed shoes that look like real leather, although I think they are probably vinyl. Her clothing is clean and in very good vintage condition.
The only damage I could find on it anywhere was a small vertical rip about 1.5 long right at the waistline of her pinafore. This is visible in the photos. One of the rosettes on her pinafore is also a replacement, because the original rosette fell to pieces when I was undressing her to take pictures. Barbara Jane's wig may also be a replacement.
I found a red wig that is similar in style and color to the one that she is wearing pinned to the underside of her dress. So, I think someone may have replaced her wig at one point and preserved the original by pinning it to her dress.
The original wig is brittle and is missing a lot of hair in the front, but I will, of course, include it with the doll. This is a very hard to find Alexander doll, and this one is in fantastic condition for her age. Don't miss out on the chance to add this little girl to your collection.
