Original mohair wig over molded hair. Presented here is a gorgeous vintage Madame Alexander Baby McGuffy doll. She is 24 tall, composition head, lower arms and legs on a cloth body. Beautiful face with high color, thick hair lashes, painted under lashes, soft smokey shadow, closed red mouth.
This is the original finish, the face has no crazing. The body is cloth, it is sturdy with no tears, there is residue from what I believe were original rubber panties, there is a crier, it does not work.
The feet and hands are good, a sight bit of crazing on the sides of the hands only. She has her original mohair wig over molded hair, it is a sandy color, the curls are a little shaggy but look adorable that way, it is thick and overall good. She is wearing original clothes from the same era, I don't know what she came in.
The dress is an adorable pink stripped cotton with petite roses. Very cute with a semi dolmen cut to the sleeves and small pleats in the front.The bonnet is a light pink cotton with a natural weave, light weigh like organdy with nice body. It has a stand up ruffled brim with embroidery, silk ribbon bows. Her socks are rayon knit, the shoes are shinny black with ankle straps. Underneath she has handmade bloomers of ivory cotton with wide lace cuffs tied with bows. The clothing is all in excellent vintage condition, clean, sturdy, no stains, no tears.
Marked on the back of the neck: Madame Alexander. The listing is for the doll and clothes only, no s.
