This listing features a 1958 Madame Alexander Cissy doll wearing a HTF outfit from 1956. The outfit would have originally come on an early painted Cissy doll, but the pretty girl wearing it is an infused Cissy from 1958. The outfit has the correct pieces, and some accessories have been added. The dress is often referred to as the "wallpaper" dress and sometimes "ribbons and roses." The fabric is subject to fading, but I see no fading issues with this dress. It is tagged, has four secure square snaps down the back, and has the original sleeve elastic with great stretch. The underslip is white taffeta with a tulle ruffle trimmed in pink baby rickrack. Elastic has been professionally replaced on the slip, and it fits snugly. The white taffeta panties have good original elastic. The green high heels are in good condition with good elastic. Cissy is wearing a pair of vintage seamed pantyhose (maybe from Alexander, but not sure) that are stretched some in the waist, but the elastic of the panties keeps them firmly in place. The hat has its original flowers, which are in very nice condition. The gold chin strap is stretched out, but it has been left in the crown of the hat rather than cutting it off. The doll has been displayed with the hat perched on her head. The straw of the hat is stiff, so a hatpin might be difficult to use and likely might do some damage. I don't think the original dressed doll had a necklace, but a vintage strand of graduated faux pearls was added. It has a box clasp. Other added accessories include a very nice Madame Alexander pink accessory box, white gloves with pink lace trim, a watch with pink elastic band, and a green stone ring that is original to Cissy (came on the dressed doll in the garden party green nylon dress).
Cissy is 20 inches tall and has jointed vinyl arms. The remainder of her body is hard plastic. Other joints are at her head, shoulders, hips and knees. She has no issues with her vinyl arms and no splits or cracks to her hard plastic. She has absolutely gorgeous original face color and some of the bluest eyes I've seen. She has her original lashes, but there is a sparse area in the middle of the lashes on the right eye. Undetectable when her eyes are open. Her blonde wig is not in its original factory set, and there are some fly-aways. Her stringing seems fine. She displays really well, and her outfit is not easily found--especially with all the correct pieces. She is from a smoke-free home and does not come with a stand. USA MAINLAND BUYERS ONLY. Thanks for taking a look, and let me know if your have questions.
