We offer for your consideration a gently displayed 17" or 18" Madame Alexander, marked ALEXANDER, hard plastic Mary Martin doll with a lovely sun tanned matte complexion. She is from the years 1948 through 1950.Her nicely blushed cheeks and full lovely lips are stunning. She is strung nicely, strong and tight for her head and legs, so she can hold a pose beautifully for display. Her arms do not hold a pose. Someday, in the far future, you will want to have her restrung. --- ----Her coloration is even and true on her face, torso, arms, and legs.
Please take note of her stunning unclouded eyes with full intact molded eyelashes that fringe her eyes. Plus, she has the lighter color eyelids for a real striking appearance. Her caracul hair is full and even with no thinning or missing areas.I see a little fleck of missing color under her right ear. --- ----This doll is one of hundreds of dolls we bought from an adult lady collector downsizing her estate. Please note, she is as close to factory fresh as you can find for an almost 70 year-old doll. Her coloring is even, beautifully blushed, and her color is unfaded.
Her lips are bright and full. She is marked, very lightly, on the back of her neck. I can make out "EXAND".
---- ----Both of her clear unclouded eyes open and close completely. Her long molded eyelashes are complete and intact. Her outfit is custom to her, and an amazing fit, so it seems it is original. --- Wow, I have never seen such an exquisite gown.
This dress is not tagged. I have now seen the Mary Martin dress, and I know it is a white formal.
There were some variations in the colors of trimming : red or green are the colors I have seen. I found the Doll Edition June 15, 2018 was a lovely photo. You can find many photos by googling Mary Martin formal or checking out the Doll Edition on Facebook.
The fit, the style, it mustbe a classic over the top amazing Madame Alexander design. One could be a tiny pin prick size hole, but it is so little it is hard to see if it is just thinned.
The snap buttons are well attached in the back. The top layer appears free of flaws, holes, or issues.
The satin layer underneath is close to factory fresh. Included with this dress is the original velvety matching waist tie, her aged but displayable bright and crisp satin no heel shoes, and her intact lovely nylon pantyhose. Her white pretty panties are no longer stretchy. ---She is intact and complete.
She is beautiful and free of issues. ----She was only rarely removed from her showcase by the original adult collector.
The doll was stored in a cool dark room in her pet and smoke free house. Her untagged dress is fresh and crisp with no major detracting noticeable major sign of age related, or sun, discoloration. I feel the photographs portray her well.The satin on the dress, panties, and slip are all clean, bright, and very displayable. ----Her hair is full with no missing or thinning areas. It is very true to the original style. The color of her hair is stunning.
---She shows no age or discoloration. She does not show any marks, or rubs of missing color on her fingers, legs, or body. She does have the minor marks on her right leg, but you will not noticem and I believe they are washable.
She shows nothing majorly detracting from her displayable condition. --- ----Her coloration is much more bright and blushed than she appears in her photos. She is complete with no chews, no splits under her ears or on her seams, or major damage. We will not include her stand. --- Please write with any questions.We know you will feel pleased with adding this doll to your collection. You will use the original packing material and box.
