Offered here is a beautiful vintage 1940s Madame Alexander Wendy Ann doll with the suntan body and complexion and her original warm blonde mohair wig with bangs and curls, and the original hair barrettes and large pink satin bow pinned in her hair. She stands 14.5 inches tall. She has her original cotton slip trimmed in vintage lace with attached panties, with pink bows and lace t. He leg elastic has stretched from age.
NOTE: The doll's slip has a child's name embroidered on it; see next to last photo. To me this adds to her poignancy; she was owned by this named little girl. This doll's hair is a wonderful sunshine yellow blonde, with tiny curls across the back and framing her face. She has wavy blonde bangs and her original gold barrettes on both sides of her head at her temples. NOTE: Another doll expert has contacted me to tell me that she found this doll in a photo in a doll book, More Mid-Century American Dolls 1945 -1965; and she would date her at 1948.
This is a very old, rare Wendy Ann Madame Alexander original doll. It appears she had little light beige or pink snap shoes in her original outfit; so this doll's shoes have been replaced. She is dressed in her original vintage very soft pink taffeta dress, with puffed sleeves trimmed in lace, a circular boat collar also edged in vintage ivory lace, and a pink satin ribbon tie around her waist.This vintage dress has a vintage soft white cotton slip and matching attached panties or bloomers, also edged in vintage lace. The panties have tiny pink bows sewn on them that match the pink ribbons in her mohair wig. She has her original black patent looking ankle strap shoes with their original tiny black bows on the toes and rayon anklet socks. She has a lovely vintage Madame Alexander pink sequin purse on a gold chain over her left arm; this little purse opens.
On her left wrist there are a couple tiny lines in her doll finish, perhaps from where the purse chain rubbed. It is very minor but I did want to mention it. She has the gorgeous SUNTAN body finish and very rosy cheeks and rosebud red lips, wonderful blue green eyes and all her dark, full lashes, and painted light brown brows. NOTE: A previous owner has hand sewn the name'Mary Elaine' on the little slip in blue embroidery thread.It can be turned to the back or left in the front. It is most likely the child's name who owned this doll originally. This sweet little doll is all dressed up and ready for a wedding, for Church or for a special birthday party or afternoon tea! This doll has no "old doll" offensive odor and shows no sign of any sun fading.
She has been kept in a display cabinet in a darkened doll room in my SMOKE FREE and PET FREE home. I take great care to wrap my dolls so that they do not move around in their boxes in transit.
