Not-so-perfect Vintage Cissy In Perfectly Wonderful Outfit-take A Look
This charming vintage Cissy doll has a few issues, but is the perfect model for this outfit. Cissy is a strawberry blonde, and the whites of her eyes have yellowed some. To minimize this, she was given a generous blush by a professional restorer. I believe the blush was also refreshed on her hands and knees. Her eyes are green, and she has all of her brush eyelashes. More on her later. Her dress was custom made by an awesome seamstress. It is brown and white stripe stiff taffeta–so stiff that the seamstress had to wash it before making the dress. It is a shirtwaist style with brown organdy cuffs and collar, rhinestone buttons and buttonholes down the front, a snap at the waistline, and a circular skirt. The waist is cinched with a brown velvet belt looped through a rhinestone buckle. A tiny spray of velvet flowers in cream, brown, and orange is tucked under her collar, but not attached. She wears a burnt umber feather bandeau by rtrorich and carries a brown straw clutch bag, also by rtrorich. Brown nylon gloves (not vintage) and high heels of brown elastic on vintage black bases complete the look. Under the dress, there’s a newer-made taffeta and tulle slip and a pair of vintage lace-trimmed taffeta panties. Her great-fitting seamed stockings are by Doll Secrets. They are shown in the last two pictures. To use the picture hat, you simply put it over the feather bandeau–and you never know the bandeau is there. Keeps from having to disturb the wig. Now, back to the doll. She has a hip split and a split above the knee on the inside of her right leg. There is also a small split at the top of the left leg, but well inside the torso. I have pictured all of this. Her vinyl arms are fine, and their stringing is good. I have a picture of her arms if you would like to see, but have run out of room for adding photos. Her head will bob and was purposely not given a tight band–for easier posing. I believe it is stable. Her knee joints work. She has the typical light rubs at the tops of her legs on the inside. I see no neck rubs. Maybe you have the skill to repair the splits. With her stated flaws, I think she is still the perfect model for this outfit due to her coloring. And she is really a striking display, all considered. She comes from a non-smoking home and is available to USA BUYERS ONLY. If you have questions or want more photos, please let me know, and thanks for taking the time to read and view the photos.

When do you ever see an ORIGINAL Madame Alexander Joanie Nurse Playpal Size Doll IN THE BOX with all the packing materials tissue, and hang tag? This is a super rare doll, and was made only in 1959 (She is dated on her neck). Comes from an old estate collection. We like to disclose everything so that nobody is disappointed. The first two issues are with the dress. (See last three pics) There is one tiny spot on the front circled in the pic. Not sure what it is… Looks almost tan in color up close. The second dress issue is on the back right side. The material in that section of the dress has discolored over time. It does not look like a stain, more like that section or panel of material was from a different lot, and aged differently than the other parts of the dress. That section just has a slightly less white tone to it. That section does not show when she is displayed in her box. The third issue is that the glue around the soul of her left shoe has darkened a bit with age, and it looks like a line around the joint of the soul to the upper shoe as can be seen in the picture. Again it is not terribly ugly, we just want to mention everything we have noticed to be honest and fair. We have handled her very little, so as not to disturb her. She even still has the packing tissue inside her hat! She really is AMAZING!!!!

Rare Kathryn Grayson Madame Alexander Look Alike Doll
Large and in charge. Beautiful doll fashioned after a beautiful actress and singer. Someone (not me) took a another doll – possibly Arranbee or American Character – and redid the makeup to look like the original from Mme A, which costs in the thousands. Here we go for the description: Body: 20-21 hard plastic, freshly strung by me. Clean with no foul odors. Fingernails are painted a deep burgundy-pink. There is a scratch on the surface of her right cheek; C- shaped from the lower eye to the mole. She has the regular rooted eye lashes, but also false ones glued on top to give her that glamorous look. Clothing: Made by a seamstress and looks SO close to the original… But I’ve never seen an original in person. Pale pink/ peach satin gown with net overlay. Bodice is a thick daisy patterned lace scattered with rhinestone brads. Two snap back closure. Slip is not attached at the waist and is 1/2 crinoline. Cream color satin panties. Leatherette center-tie shoes have a few problem spots, possibly glue or build up of polish. Soles and heels are intact. Her stockings were in bad shape, so I removed them. I have tried to capture everything in the photos, but feel free to ask me anything you have a question about. I have displayed her in a smoke-free home away from direct sunlight. Just a regular doll collector. The eyelashes fell off. My response: I pack my girls very carefully, but mishaps like that can easily be fixed. The body is hollow. The dress is cheaply made. The arms are falling off. My response: This was my fault. At the time, the stringing tension seemed fair to me but I probably should have gone ahead and restrung her, which I have taken care of.
