Offered here is a gorgeous Limited Edition Madame Alexander Cissy doll, Strolling Under the Stars; she is number 33 of 35 made. See my last photo for the faint black marker numbers on her dress tag. She was made exclusively for the Modern Doll Collectors' Convention (MDCC) in 2006.
This doll will come to you in her all original outfit as shown, missing one earring. She came to me that way all the way from Australia! She must have lost it in transit or out under the stars "DOWN UNDER"! The remaining earring matches her necklace so I have not replaced them.There is a gold chin strap to the wonderful wide brim hat that covers her right ear and makes this missing jewelry less apparent. This doll has wonderful bright dark brown eyes, full dark brush lashes and painted lashes and brows, rosy cheeks, a beauty mark on her left cheek bone, and cherry red lips. Her lustrous RED HAIR is drawn back in a bun at the nape of her neck. This outfit is one of the prettiest made by Madame Alexander. It features a long damask period style over dress in shades of gold and grey blue, in a floral print; with an under dress of gold ivory paisley floral print brocade that has a wonderful side slit to show off her lovely lace petticoat with embroidered lace floral designs all way round.
Her dress layers are both lined in silk, one in lustrous blue and one in ivory. The bodice of the dress is in the brocade of the skirt and has a ruffle of the petticoat lace in her neckline and lovely blue raw silk straps that frame her bosom and snap behind her neck. These match the fabric of the lining of the dress's over skirt and train.
She wears long filmy silk pantyhose with a gold sheen; these hose have the solid white panty top. Her shoes are a wonderful soft blue to match the dress, with chocolate brown heels and soles, and gold filigree designs across the top. Her hat crown and under ruffle is a wonderful pleated blue grey gold raw silk, a lustrous fabric that matches the blue grey gold sheen of the lining of her dress; her wide brim straw hat is trimmed with a layer of light ivory lace to match her petticoat, and a wonderful ribbon of the same lovely damask material as her dress circles the crown -- to perfectly compliment her dress.
It has a gold chin strap to hold it securely to her head for different angles and poses. NOTE: I have added a pair of light tan almost translucent gloves to her attire, to dress up her lovely hands. This doll was made in 2006 and has the wonderful multi-jointed body, with elbow joints.
Knee joints and a twist waist. This multi-jointing makes for wonderful poses, holding her hat, striking fashionable poses, etc.
Her elegant period gown is tagged with the Cissy script tag and the Madame Alexander 2006 dress tag ; her number is written in faint black ink on the underside of the dress tag, not on her body. S he also has the "Madame Alexander" raised lettering across the back of her waist. She has been part of my personal collection, kept in a darkened doll room, in my SMOKE FREE and PET FREE home. She has been on display on a doll stand as shown. She will come with the metal doll stand in the photos so she will be ready for display.
If you need to see any more photos of her outfit, please let me know as I have many lovely ones. Please feel free to read my buyers' feedback on my wrapping and packing. I take great care to ensure my dolls arrive in excellent shape, and pack them so they do not move around in transit in their boxes.
