This is an early Cissy doll by Madame Alexander probably from 1956. She is hard plastic with bendable vinyl arms and is 20 inches tall. Her joints are at the head, shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. Stringing is good, but headband may need to be replaced later on.
It is okay at present. Cissy's original cheek color has faded, but you can still see some of the original blush on her hands and knees. She doesn't have any splits or cracks in her hard plastic. There are rubs at the insides of her legs at the hip joints.
There are no tears to her vinyl, and her arms are light in color. Her right knee will bend, but the left one will only partially bend, and I didn't want to force it. UPDATE: I WAS ABLE TO FREE UP HER LEFT KNEE, AND IT DOES BEND AS IT SHOULD. Cissy has a strawberry blonde wig that is in need of some styling. It is full and secure.
Cissy's main drawback is the fact that her eyes have aged. It's a shame because she retains all of her original brush lashes. The eyes can be changed out by someone who's skilled in restoration. She could also be displayed wearing sunglasses.
Her present eyes need a little manipulation to open fully. Cissy has some light neck rubs. She has potential, so I hope you'll give her some consideration. She would like a new home for Christmas.
