She is clean and does not have that sour hard plastic smell. I do not see any serious flaws with this doll however her head is a bit loose, but she does hold a pose well. Her eyes will open and close but sometimes her head must be adjusted. But for display, that is not a problem.Her coloring is nice, and her rich red wig is very thick and beautiful. There are some hairpins to hold curls in place and she will be wearing a hairnet to keep her style as it is. She is wearing a beautiful black taffeta after five tagged dress. Her undergarments were beautifully made especially for her. The shawl and jewelry she is wearing are very vintage. My Cissy did not have pierced ears, however I had earrings that go with the necklace, so I just hooked them to her hair. They could be glued on her ears, but Ill leave that to her new owner. Cissy's outfit is complete with a Richards original feather bandeau hat and matching handbag. I try to describe as accurately as possible but may leave something out please look at the pictures carefully as they are the most important part of the description. Remember, this is a vintage doll over 50 plus years old, and will not be perfection, as a new doll would be. I will also be listing doll clothes and other related items. I have Madame Alexander's from the 1930s to 60s!!
I also collect Arranbees, Tonis, and others. The doll stand is not included.My home is smoke free I do have a dog and cat, but they are not allowed to play with my dolls :. I do not make a profit onshipping. If you have any questions, please ask. However, some flaws might be overlooked or might seem unimportant to mention but may be of great importance to you please let me know. I take many pictures some with direct sunlight, with and without flash.
If you would like more pictures, just ask. ALSO: If you are sensitive/allergic to fragrance, please let me know. I clean my dolls very well and if they have that sour hard plastic smell, after cleaning them, I store them for a while ina sealed bag with sachets.I also put a few sachets in the mailing package. They smell nice to me and to others who have bought from me, but I can understand if someone is highly sensitive or allergic to fragrance. I'm adding this caveat because I don't want to cause an allergic reaction to anyone who has allergies. Please understand I have nothing to gain by being purposely dishonest.
