This is a RARE original of the very first version of this doll, introduced in 1955. This first version had Cissys hairstyle in straight bangs, which was only available until 1958.
Beginning in 1958 and thereafter, Cissy was only available with curly bangs. She comes in her original cream color lace Chemise, which has a small tear in the lace. This should be easily repairable, and I leave that to the purchaser.Cissys black high heels are in good condition, although the elastic is stretched out. This too can be remedied with a stitch taken to tighten the elastic. She also comes with a pair of nylon stockings, which have some soiling in a couple of spots. I have not tried to clean them. Otherwise, they are in excellent condition with no tears, runs, or holes. Cissy herself is in fabulous condition with just a few marks and area of light soiling as shown in the photos. Her limbs Ben as they should and she can hold a pose.
She has no cracks, chips, peeling or breaks. She has all of her beautiful lashes. Her coloring is fabulous and her cheeks, hands and even her knees have retained their rosy highlights.
Overall, she is exquisite and I think it would be very difficult to find another in such a great condition! Please see photos for condition detail. Smoke free, pet free home.
