**PAYMENT BY PAYPAL ONLY!**
Breathtakingly BEAUTIFUL face! 11", vintage 50s, Madame Alexander doll -- LISSY. (THANK YOU to the kind eBayer who took the time to give me that info!) To me, she seems to quite obviously be an Alexander, but she has no markings on her head or back. She is fully jointed hard plastic with extra jointing at the elbows & knees. She has a little girl's , or "tween" type figure and, although she is only 11" tall, she is a much more chunky doll than a vintage Cissette (which I have owned before). She has a dark honey-blonde wig, sewn to be parted into 2 braids, and dark brown sleep eyes with molded lashes. She is previously owned & played with and has some significant faults. Her wig has sustained some major playwear over the years and the cap and some original glued areas can be seen in portions, however, it has been washed & conditioned and styled back into her two-braid style. Her painted facial features are intact with just some slight fade-off at the far left sides of each eyebrow. Her sleep eyes are clear but remain in the open position. Her arm & head stringing/jointing is pretty well secure & elbows still bend & hold a pose. Her knees still bend & hold also. Her hip jointing is loose & causes her her legs to be somewhat swingy -- I think she may have been a walker at one time - ??? However, she poses & displays well seated and does great displayed upright supported by a doll stand. She is clean throughout, including hair & clothing (immaculate) and has no ink or bite marks. Her re-costuming is FANTASTIC and very era appropriate -- really makes her shine as a display doll, despite her flaws. Both braids have been cuffed in black velveteen bands and she's wearing a long puffed sleeved off-white see-through nylon blouse shot with white embroidery-work & self-tie jabot at the neckline (tacked down for beauty of display). Her pleated tartan skirt is hand-crafted of vintage 1950s taffeta fabric with a black gros-grain ribbon waistband. She has vintage 50s lace-trimmed cotton panties, white nylon anklets, and black faux patent leather side-snap Mary Janes from OSS.
