Crisp lovely 1954 tagged (Medford, Mass) Vogue Ginny doll Bridesmaid gown set. Set includes gown, panties, horsehair hat and shoes. It is #65 from the First Corsage Series shown on page 129 of the Collectors Encyclopedia of Vogue Dolls by Izen & Stover, 2nd edition, purple cover. This is the green version. Very crisp light green shadow print organdy gown with white lace and green satin ribbon trims. Attached white cotton slip. Hook and eye back closure with a little rust on the eye. White cotton bloomers with nice elastic at the waist and legs. I don't know if these are original to the dress but was found with the outfit. Original horsehair straw hat with green leaves (missing flowers) and pleated net lace trim. I added the light green oil cloth slip on shoes. They one had ties but the holes to thread the ties through have torn. Fuzzy bottoms. Please read condition below and look at all of the photos as they are an important part of the description.
CONDITION: Other than the shoes all are in excellent clean condition with no holes or tears. A few tiny pin head size age stains on the lace. Not bad in my opinion and probably not worth mentioning. I do for accuracy. Dress fabric is crisp with nice stiffness and color is even all the way around with no fading. No stains to the bloomers. Dress tag is very crisp. Eye to hook and eye has some light rust. Flowers on the hat are missing. No breaks to the hat and very clean. Nice stretch to the chin strap. Excellent elastic on panties. Shoes have breaks where ties were pulled through.
PLEASE LOOK AT ALL OF THE PHOTOS AS THEY ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE DESCRIPTION. WHILE I HAVE DESCRIBED THE CONDITION OF THIS ITEM TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY I ENCOURAGE YOU TO LOOK AT ALL OF THE PHOTOS SO THAT YOU CAN FORM YOUR OWN OPINION OF CONDITION.
MEASURES: 7 1/2 in. Ginny Doll
