Her legs are jointed at the knees making her A JOY TO POSE! NOT TOO TIGHTLY STRUNG---WONDERFUL HEAD TILT! ORIGINAL BLONDE WIG with original curls & wavy short bangs.
GRACEFUL HANDS with detailed fingers & nails FOR NATURAL POSES. This TEENAGE BEAUTY is a BIG BEAUTIFUL BINNIE! She is called a "WALKER" DOLL but her head does not turn with "steps" taken. She was made this way---she appears to "walk" with posing. But has a very different factory body than the 1953 Winnie Walker Doll shown in the background, for comparison.
Miss Winnie has a "Little Girl" appearance while Miss Binnie is more sophisticated---WITH VIVID ORIGINAL FACE COLOR: RUBY RED LIPS! Hand painted original MULTI-STROKE BROWS & delicate UNDER EYE LASHES. CRYSTAL CLEAR IRIDESCENT ORIGINAL SLEEP EYES with FULL ORIGINAL BRUSH LASHES & LARGE PUPILS. BINNIE WALKER IS A CLASSIC CISSY BEAUTY!
"---with WONDERFUL "CISSY STYLE ORIGINAL EYESHADOW! (best seen in photo of her lying down). She wears her ORIGINAL PINK "NOVELTY COTTON" DRESS (with a unique linear pattern) with SIGNATURE PETITE WHITE RICKRACK TRIM on bodice & cap sleeves. A WIDE SWEEPING CISSY SKIRT! With deep signature two inch hem.Closing at back with four original square metal snaps. ORIGINAL PEACH PINK NYLON HALF PETTICOAT with PEACH TAFFETA PANTIES trimmed with PEACH VAL LACE. ORIGINAL SILKY SOCKS with ORIGINAL BLACK OILCLOTH SNAP SHOES, with heels, but shoes have lost some of their oilcloth shine due to age---THIS DOLL AND HER ORIGINAL ATTIRE ARE 66 YEARS "YOUNG". She also had a HAIRLINE CRACK BEGINING ACROSS HER BOTTOM SEAM---it has been RESEALED AND PROTECTED BY A HOT SHOT PLASTICINE PATCH AS WELL. It is out of sight underneath her original panties. THIS BINNIE IS A ONE-OF-A-KIND BINNIE WALKER DOLL because I have added several accessories: a "NEW BLUE" AQUA CARDIGAN SWEATER w/ PUSH-UP SLEEVES---tagged "The Doll Clothes Store---Silverton, Oregon". This doll originally wore a white jersey cardigan sweater so "I have to have a new blue sweater" she whispered shortly after arriving in my Doll Room.
"To match my new blue hairbows". And she has---TWO NEW AQUA GROSGRAIN RIBBON HAIRBOW CLIPS, one on each side. This doll did not come with brass barrettes like Winnie wears.I added a VINTAGE "MADE IN JAPAN" TAGGED "PEARL" NECKLACE with ORIGINAL METAL LOBSTER CLASP---the only necklace this longer length that I have ever seen! I designed OOAK MINI-PETITE "PEARL" BRACELETS made from MARVELLA PEARLS to be worn on either side of a NEW "DIAMOND" BRACELET. Worn over PEACH PINK LACE OOAK FINGERLESS GLOVES (made my yours truly) to protect her vinyl wrists from "metal marks" from bracelets. (my 1961 Jacque dolls have vinyl wrists that are forever "tatooed" from their original silver bracelets). Miss Binnie carries a OOAK MINI-ROSE & LILY BOUQUET made by yours truly from imported parchment florals---IN WHITE & PINK & BLUE HUES! MISS BINNIE HAS BEEN RESTRUNG but not too tight SO SHE HAS EXCELLENT HEAD TILT & LOVELY "LIFTING" ARMS. THIS BEAUTIFUL BLONDE CISSY BINNIE IS THE ONLY ONE I HAVE LIKE HER IN MY COLLECTION. I make no claim that she is "mint"---SHE IS NOT MINT---SHE DOES HAVE SOME SIGNS OF "AGE" as mentioned earlier, repairing her by filling cracks and reinforcing the stress point at her knee and across her bottom. She also has a few small marks (like little dots) on her arms between her gloves and sweater, and minimal "rubs" at hip joints, with a few tiny "nicks" on legs---she has ORIGINAL PINK KNEES!
As far as I can tell her dress has not been washed---the fabric appears to have original patina and texture and fits well but not tight---this fabric will shrink with washing as it is 100% cotton. She has been on display in my SMOKE FREE, PET FREE DOLL ROOM protected from sunlight & temperature extremes.
I can send you additional photos upon request. This doll is not photographed but is described in detail on page 117 of the book MADAME ALEXANDER COLLECTOR'S DOLLS by Patricia Smith, under the paragraph "Binnie Walker". She is listed as being 25" tall---the doll is 24"---her original white cotton jersey stocking cap would have made her 25 tall, it is not included.
She came to me without her original hat and sweater. THANK YOU FOR VISTING WITH MISS BINNIE WALKER & ME---IT HAS BEEN OUR COMPLETE PLEASURE! PERHAPS YOU ARE THE DOLL COLLECTOR MISS BINNIE HAS PATIENTLY WAITED 66 YEARS TO MEET & BELONG TO!
