Her wig which is original to the 1957 Cissy Queen doll is a pretty chestnut brown color with upswept sides..... She has blushed hands and knees.Her eyes open and close and she has no missing lashes. Sometimes her head needs a little nudge to help them open. I see no cracks, splits or tears. She is strung well and holds poses. This doll has no major flaws. There are a few minor ones which I will mention. There are a few age related rub marks at the tops of her legs. There are two tiny faint spots on the underside of her left wrist which are hard to notice.
A spot of paint is missing on her left eyelid which of course can only be seen when her eyes are shut. If held under a bright light, there are a few places around her wig showing a very slight bit of glue residue.This is hard to see in normal lighting. One leg is a tiny bit shorter than the other as is sometimes common with these dolls. Please note that all of these flaws are very minor for a doll over sixty years old. She's stunning and displays beautifully. Her clothes are in very good to excellent condition.
The dress is lovely with no tears or stains. The hat is missing a small amount of trim near the back. The chin strap is still attached and is in great shape. Her cape is slightly separated at the left seam in the front. This is hardly noticeable when on the doll.
