Extremely Rare Madame Alexander Composition Portrait Ballerina
There were only a few of these special dolls made for window displays in just a few high end department stores (in the 1938 and then again after the war in 1946 I believe). I was told this Ballerina outfit style is from the 30s. Her composition is AMAZING. I dont see any crazing, the coloring of her skin & blushing on her cheeks, elbows and knees, & elaborate portrait make-up are vibrant and elegant. She is unusually rare, because of the portrait ballerinas, most had brown braid buns & brown eyes- this has blondish braid buns and outstanding blue eyes with full lashes. Her original Full skirted silky-netted tulle tutu is fragile but lovely, with a few small holes in the tulle. The matching panties are crisply tagged as is typical of these portraits. The heart & star sequins still retain their gold appearance, and her cabbage roses have a lovely round shape to them. The flowers in her hair are beautiful as well with elegant gold stars adorning the leaves and a few petals (matching the ones on her tutu). The black velvet ribbons at her wrists are fairly plush and in lovely condition. She is also still wearing her original soft pink ballet slippers. The photos are part of the description.
