Vintage 1930s 13 Swivel Waist Composition Alexander Sonja Henie Doll in Tagged Feather Costume. Here is a sweet Nineteen-thirties Madame Alexander Sonja Henie doll made in the image of the outstanding athlete. This composition doll is in very nice condition - having a tagged costume, all her fingers, light blushing and a lovely human hair wig.Sonja Henie was a Norwegian born. Three-time Olympic Champion (1928, 1932, 1936). In Ladies' Singles, a ten-time World Champion. (19271936) and a six-time European Champion. Henie won more Olympic and World titles than any other ladies' figure skater. At the height of her acting career, she was one of the highest-paid stars in Hollywood. And starred in a series of box-office hits. If you want to be amazed, watch a YouTube video of Sonja doing spins on the ice - it seems like she can spin forever! She is 13 tall, all composition and marked Wendy Ann on her back. She is strung moderately tight so she can hold a pose but does better on a stand. She has working, clear, brown sleep eyes with thick lashes, nice painted lower lashes, single stroke eyebrows, light grey eye shadow and lightly blushed cheeks and body. She is jointed at the neck, shoulders, waist and hips.
She is wearing a tagged grey sateen skating dress trimmed in replaced real feathers, matching grey/blue sateen panties and original MA ice skates. Good, lightly played with condition.
Has clear, working sleep eyes with all brush lashes. Open mouth with six upper teeth. Missing a few dots of lip paint. Wig is thick, human hair, with barrettes and possibly the original set.
No broken or repaired fingers. Skin tone is even and clean.Has some paint wear at all joints. Light crazing, no chips or lifting. Most of the lines in her face are hairs.
But if you really magnify the pics you can see the lighter lines which are crazing. Has a crack on the side of one eye and one coming down from the same eye. Some cracks on her upper thighs.
Clothing is all in good condition, has working snaps but the feathers were replaced and are shedding BADLY. The tag is present but illegible. Skating pants are more blue color - probably because the skating dress was washed and has faded. Flowers on dress and in hair look original.
