Im pleased to offer this extremely rare, and hard to find Gay Nineties purple Godey portrait doll. She is the strung doll with the slender non jointed arms.
Lovingly referred to by collectors as the no neck Cissy. 21 tall with an adult body, and high heeled feet. All original doll to the tagged costume. This girl is so rare, that collectors sometimes have to find bits and pieces of this particular doll. Cissy wears her original costume consisting of her dress, slip, panties, hose, and jacket, as well as her hat.
The tulle on her hat has been replaced. Im sure flowers have also been added to the hat as well as the jacket. She wears lace gauntlets, as well as her original earrings. The dress is pink taffeta, and it has been laundered and pressed. Not the best thing for vintage taffeta.
There are wrinkles that I didnt try to iron out. There is a pin hole at the bodice that doesnt go all the way through the lining.It is also covered by the rest of the costume. A few small pinholes in the skirt. Also a few dark smudges along the back. Meaning, there is so much positive going on, I dont really get hung up on that. Use your own discretion though. Purple elastic sandals are newer. Cissy is in great condition.
Many of these dolls have yellowed and their heads have split at the seams on the sides. Cissy has had very light blush added, and its been professionally sealed.
Pretty, long, full auburn wig. Blue sleep eyes that stick slightly. One side of her eyelash curls up a bit. The lashes could be replaced so they wouldnt do this, but I say leave her as original as possible. You wont find this doll again in the near future.
Ive probably only seen a handful in the past 20 years. She is extremely rare, and because shes not perfect, Im offering her for a great price.
