Listing these days in "Dolls & Bears" is like spinning a roulette wheel--where the listing pops up, nobody knows. The outfit and the doll are original to each other, and the pieces are all correct, as far as I know. I did change out her panties at one time so the overalls would have a smoother look. She is wearing a pair of new old store stock white nylon tricot panties with an inset of pale blue lace on the left leg. The tortoise-shell finish on the glasses frame shows some wear.
The flower decorations and ear pieces are intact, Straw bag and shoulder strap in good vintage condition. Her blue overalls/jumpsuit are tagged in the crotch. All snaps are present on clothing pieces.
Shoe elastic still fits nicely, but not as snug as when new. Straw hat with black velvet ribbon in very good condition. Some of these hats came with a dark blue velvet ribbon, others with black as this one.
Cissy is 20 inches tall and has joints at the head, shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. Her arms are vinyl; the remainder of her body is hard plastic. The doll went to the spa quite a few years back.She received refreshed blush and matting. Can't remember if her eyelashes were replaced, but they are all there. If there were any issues with the hard plastic, they were repaired at the time. Cissy has blue-green eyes that open and close well. Her stringing is fine, and her joints work well.
I did notice when I undressed her for the pictures that her right leg is looser than the left and seems slightly shorter. She's fine on a stand and will stand even without the assistance of one (see pictures).
Her brunette wig seems to have a little weakness, i. If you comb through it, single hairs will loosen that need to be pulled out.
If left alone, no problem. She has one of the wigs with the tight curls around the perimeter.
I have several Cissy dolls with this wig, and they all seem to want to shed some. She is a lovely doll in a hard-to-find outfit, especially with the correct accessories. Please enjoy the pictures, and if you have questions, I'm happy to answer. Thank you for viewing if you happen to find the listing.
