This is a Nancy Ann Style Show Doll titled Her Royal Majesty The Queen #340 dating to 1952 the first year of production of magnificent Style Show dolls. Her Majesty is a 17" strung jointed non-walker hard plastic doll with a clean and perfect doll body. She has strung tight joints, no odor, flawless perfect face paint including smokey eyeshadow, clear sleep eyes with very long brush lashes, (eyes do not close all the way), long painted underlashes, beautiful red lips, blush to the cheeks, and perfect original set to the blonde hair. Her lavish and luxurious gown is made of the finest lace. The color is an antique white ecru color and not snow white. Whether it has aged that color or was the antique white color originally is a mystery. The lace color is even all over with no damage to the lace including holes or breaks. I have placed tissue paper under the skirt to give it the same appearance as a hooped petticoat as the original hooped petticoat is missing. The gown has a similar in color antique white satin underskirt, lace bodice with rhinestone trim at the neckline (one rhinestone is missing from the back of the neckline). The lace over skirt and attached satin underskirt are Very full making it more than a full circle. All the rhinestones that were placed to the front of the skirt are in place. There are no holes to the lace or satin underskirt, but there are about 15 very tiny tan spots the size of a tiny green pea scattered here and there among the folds and drape of the fabric (all from age), and about 20 similar tiny age spots to the ecru satin underskirt and about 2 spots the size of a nickel. They rather blend in with the color of the fabric. The silver foil wrist hang tag is properly marked and has many creases. Her Majesty is also wearing silver snap shoes in beautiful condition (one shoe sole looks to have a sticker tear), tight perfect seamed hose, and she does not have her tiara. The satin ribbon sash no longer has the rivet or pin to hold it in place at her waistline so a straight pin is holding the sash in place now. The sash has the rhinestone brooch (all the rhinestone are present) and the sash has two small areas where the edge is frayed (about 1 1/2" long) where it was once held by a rivet. There is also a tan spot about the size of a quarter to the sash. Her Majesty The Queen is a gorgeous lavish doll! I have taken more pictures than what is allowed so please ask.
