This is a beautiful 16 hard plastic Madame Alexander Bride Doll. She was produced in the late 1940s and belonged to my mother-in-law as a child. I do not know much about her, but from what I could find...
She is a Lucy Bride with a Margaret face mold. Her satin and rhinestone bridal gown, veil with flower headpiece, all original undergarments, nylon stockings, and original satin front snap shoes.Her dressed is tagged Madame Alexander, as well as on the back of her neck. She is a beautiful doll with lovely facial coloring and her body is in excellent condition. Her fingers are all intact and her eyes with rooted lashes open and close perfectly. Her hair is very nice, blonde still in the original style, and the doll appears she was not played with much. However, her outfit is in rough shape and in definite need of restoration. Even though she appears to have seen little play, it seems that she was not stored away properly and her original outfit shows age discoloration, stains, and holes in the veil. The doll is so beautiful, that perhaps her gown would be worth trying to restore. I have not tried to clean or repair anything... I will leave that to the new owner.
Her face is so beautiful and in perfect condition for her age! With some TLC, she would be a wonderful addition to your collection! I believe that all hard plastic dolls have odors. That is the nature of this plastic as it ages.This doll belonged to my mother-in-law who is now 80 years old.
