Up for sale is this GORGEOUS and Rare 18 Mary Louise from Madame Alexander's Me and My Shadow series from 1954. I have been told that as rare as this doll is, much, much more rare is finding her with her Yellow striped gloves! She is a beautiful doll, with a Cissy face, and amazing golden yellow braids that are pinned up with shiny perfect curls at each cheek.Her eyes are a lovely blue, she has full eyelashes, lovely eye shadow, two stroke brows and pink lips. Her blush is pretty too, though she does have a "rub" on her left cheek. She is wearing a full-skirted burnt orange taffeta dress with crisp tag, black trim at neckline, bust and at her wrists. Her original olive green wool jacket and hat with cream trim, rickrack and adorned with a few tiny metal flowers at the small of her back and on the top of her head, are in excellent condition as well. No moth holes that I can see. Her hat is kept on her head by a lovely mustard yellow velvet ribbon which wraps around her braids and over her head.
Her yellow gloves with black stripes match the yellow ribbon nicely and are in excellent condition as well. Her light cream taffeta underskirt/hoop-slip is still crisp, as are her pantaloons. Her black velvet shoes are in excellent condition with fuzzy soles.
She also has her black and gold hatbox in lovely condition. She comes from a smoke and pet free home, and is without odors.
