This beautiful lady was bought from her original owner this last summer. She said she was never allowed to play with it and the condition makes me believe that is true.The dress in NOT tagged, but fits well and is definitely made with attention to detail. There are applied sequins on the skirt, but one is missing on the shoulder. Her panty hose and shoes have seen better days. There are holes in the stockings and the straps are broken on the shoes. In the pictures though please notice the blush still rosy on her knees. She has on no underwear but the dress has built in slips. The truly remarkable part of this doll is her hair which is still in its original set. There are barrettes and the remnants of her original hair net.
I found the flower head piece in the box with her, but it is in rough shape. It has some little stones in it similar to the dress so I thought it went with. Overall the facial coloring is just gorgeous. I hope the pictures do her justice and I hope someone wants to give her a new home for Christmas.
A very kind e-bayer sent me the following information about her--She is #2097 from 1955, she is missing an ostrich fan as well as her undies! The flowers do go with the gown, she is also minus her necklace. The item "VNTG Madame Alexander Cissy Untagged Blue Ball Gown A REAL BEAUTY" is in sale since Saturday, December 7, 2019.
