Description of Doll for Sale
I am pleased to present Cissy wearing a the black torso dress often referred to as the "Black Mermaid". The dress is shown in the Madame Alexander catalog as #2043 and was made in 1956. The outfit has never been washed and has the factory crisp sizing you always want to see in a Cissy outfit. The shoes are also spectacular with their original roses with just a little stretching of the elastic. The black tulle on the bottom of the dress is in original condition with no rips and no sign of solarizing or fading. She has her original black tulle slip and black satin panties. Her hair is in it's original factory with all the original ties and clips. There are remnants of the rubber band holding the ponytail in the back which has broken. It should probably be retied to bring it back to the original factory look. Cissy also has her original pearls and all of the flowers on the outfit are factory original.
The dress is tagged as follows:
"Cissy" // by Madame Alexander
