Some sellers refer to it as "Madeline", but the tag has the correct spelling. She is the first of her vinyl-headed dolls with a hard plastic body, jointed at the neck, arms, elbows, hips & knees. This one is a wonderful 18 example from 1952 (appears in this tagged pink outfit on page 49 of the reference book Madame Alexanders Collectors Dolls Price Guide #15, by Patricia A Smith, 1990) with dark blonde shiny curls a glued on wig fine facial color with no gouges nor scratches, & pale hazel sleep eyes with real lashes.
Her expression is not just a blank empty look, is so pleasant & endearing. The tagged pink organdy dress trimmed with lace & pale blue ribbon has a white cotton petticoat & pink panties. The black real leather slip on shoes may or may not be original, but are definitely by the same age, are of super fine quality, marked The Halls, in a circle inside on the sole.Her socks have a pink stripe at the ankle. Of course, the hat has been added just for fun, made of woven vinyl? Straw, a pink velvet ribbon, & vintage silk velveteen flowersa good match for the outfit. There are no stains nor losses, repairs nor cracks to the doll nor her outfita very clean & well-preserved doll that does not appear to have been played with.
