THIS MADAME ALEXANDER CISSY - IS A 1957 DOLL, MY PERSONAL DOLL I GOT AS A CHILD. HEIGHT: 20 INCHES SHE HAS JOINTED SOFT VINYL ARMS, HARD-PLASTIC JOINTED LEGS AND AN INFUSED PLASTIC FACE. SHE HAS NO OPEN SEAMS, HOWEVER SHE HAS A SMALL SPLIT UP FROM THE JOINT ON ONE LEG (SEE PHOTO CLOSE UP).
HEAVY BLUSH ON HANDS AND KNEES. THIS DOLL IS VERY CLEAN AND HAS BEEN STORED, WITH OCCASIONAL DISPLAYING, FOR MANY YEARS. Gorgeous exceptionally shiny red wig in original style with partial up sweep. Original bar across the crown of her head with a full head of curls at the nape of her neck. Still retains some of the original doll pins holding the curls in place.
Clear blue-green eyes with full upper lashes - just a truly beautiful face - the classic red lips - all making that red hair look fabulous! She has a lovely flesh-colored matte complexion. Her skin tone on her entire body is that peachy flesh-colored tone with a lot of blushing on the arms, hands and legs highlighting and contouring her natural features. There is a slight split on the one leg. I can find nothing else on this doll to detract from the beauty she was the first day I got her!(I was a lucky little girl and knew it). She is very clean and has no odors that I can detect. Cissy will come to you in a 1956 HTF mint satin and lace corset. The corset is tagged Cissy and zips up the back. The main body of this is an ecru or beige color with the accent lace an ivory color.
A small delicate pink rose at mid-cleavage is the finishing touch to this intricate design. Madame Alexander was spot on when she went for feminine with this lovely under garment. The pictures do more to describe this timeless piece than I can with words. Cissy is wearing lace-topped seamed nylons with the pretty pink mules donning cabbage roses and rhinestones.
The shoes are as clean and mint as the corset. I think this doll is much prettier in person than she is in her photographs.She really makes you do a double take. Cissy wears her original pearl drop earrings. Please look at pictures they are a large part of the description. Please ask if you have any questions. Thank you for viewing my childhood sweetheart!
I will be listing other dolls when I get a chance. Terri Lees, Muffies and many others.
All have been a great source of joy for me through the years. I hope someone else will find them as endearing as I have.
