For your consideration is this beautiful vintage Madame Alexander. From 1954 in a tagged pale blue organdy lace trimmed gown with puff sleeves and white pearl like buttons in the back.
Under her lovely gown is a very lovely pale pink taffeta half slip with pale light blue ribbon woven around through the lace trimming and matching pantaloons. Both slip and pantaloons fit her nicely around her waist with elastic that still holds up well. She wears her original rayon socks and black velvety side snap shoes with fuzzy bottoms.Her straw hat has florets on the side and is tied under her chin with a pale blue satin ribbon. This lovely doll is shown on page 28 of Patricia Smith's book, World of Alexander-kins. " There are other similar Southern Belle variations or "types, but the others usually have a crocheted hat. This doll in my pictures has the harder to find straw hat and longer sleeves.
She has sweet bisque like color to her plastic and original facial coloring with pale eyebrows and very rosy cheeks. Even more special are her bright clear green-eyes and soft brunette curls. - She has a tiny beginning of a crack at the top of each leg at the hip inside the cavity. Her walker mechanism doesn't work. Her dress, slip, pantaloons and socks were very gently cleaned to remove years of settling dust that came with her when she was sent to me.
She is marked ALEX on her back and her gown is tagged Alexander kins. She is a SLW or straight leg walker with her original banding. Her eyes blink and sleep as shown. If you would like to know more, please message me.
