I SELL ONLY WITHIN THE U. Im offering today another one of my adorable large baby dolls by Madame Alexander from the year 1961.
This is a large baby doll which is known as "Kitten" by Madame Alexander which has platinum blonde hair cut into a wispy baby cut which frames her face beautifully. If you have allergies and never thought you could own a vintage baby doll, now you can. This baby doll was completely taken apart, removed all the old stuffing, soaked in my special solution for approximately two days, rinsed and then soaked again in a softener for another day.
Hung out to dry on the line in fresh air and then carefully re-stuffed with hypo-allergenic fiber stuffing to give her fullness. Her head, arms and legs are stuffed with polyester fiber prior to returning her head.Her head is put back on with 20 gauge aluminum wire which should wear for another 60 years of loving. Wait till you see this doll in person. She is truly a beautiful doll and hard to believe she is from 1961 now that she has been restored.
Now to the description of the doll. I will start at the top of the doll and work my way down so as not to omit anything in my description.Starting at the top of her head, she has pale platinum blonde hair which is cut into a wispy baby cut. The large bow around her head was designed and created by me so it would match her dress. The ribbon I used is heavy grosgrain in soft pink.
I made a large bow and attached it to a one inch wide pale pink elastic hair band so it would stay securely on top of her head. As you go down to her face, she has single brown line for eyebrows. She has blue colored open close sleep eyes with long eyelashes which have been spared from the hands of her previous little mommies.
Her eyes open and close freely and have such a precious look to them. She has a dainty little nose with open nostrils for realism which flow down to her rose bud shape lips. Her lips are painted bright pink color with open mouth for cuteness. Her cheeks have beautiful coloring to blend well with her beautiful bright eyes.
Her head, legs and arms are soft vinyl which are attached to a firmly clean stuffed original body. She has jointed head so you can pose her in the sweetest positions. The back of her neck is hallmarked: "Alexander, 1961". Now to her adorable outfit I chose for her debut. I decided to put her in a vintage Feltman Brothers pale pink voile dress which buttons up the front.The dress is probably from the 1940's era, but looked like it would go perfect with this precious doll. There are five mother of pearl buttons which keep the dress closed. The panel where the buttons close have delicate white lace going down either side. The top bodice on the dress has tiny pinch pleating which frames the dress perfectly.
Under the pink voile dress she wears a pale pink slip from the same era. Under her slip she is wearing pale pink cotton pants which come to the knees. She has pale pink socks with delicate pink lace which peek over the top of her hand made pink booties. The booties have adorable pink satin rose on top and tie with pale pink silk ribbon. She has been in my collection for many years and over the course of years I clean my dolls and try to avoid them from ageing by doing so.
They are not played with by children who come and visit; I know that sounds mean, but sometimes they play too rough. My dolls are kept in a doll room specifically for them and are displayed for everyone to enjoy. All my dolls are truly loved and cared for as though they were my children. Their clothes are either original to the doll, made by me, I've tried finding doll clothing from the same era as the doll or find clothing which match the personality of the doll. We do not smoke and I try very hard to keep a tidy clean home free of dust and odor.Depending on how old they are, I do try to be honest in detailing if some of the dolls have bruises, missing toes or fingers or other issues, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth having; for each one is like children..... They are all beautiful in their mothers eyes. If I've missed something it would never be intentional. This is a very large doll measuring approximately 22 tall. I'm going to say she is in excellent condition because she has been restored.
As I mentioned above, her body was disassembled and thoroughly cleaned and put back together. Her clothes are Vintage and have been washed and ironed for her debut. Her hair band was designed and created just for her. She is an adorable doll which you will want to add to your collection.
