This is a C1957 Blonde Madame Alexander 9 1/2 inch Basic Cissette Doll in #916 Navy Blue Taffeta Dress. This tagged dress is the variation with the cotton blue and white dot puff sleeves, sash and pleated back insert. She is the Basic Cissette doll still dressed in her lacy chemise and pink bow at the top of her head (someone glued it to her head with a spot of glue). Her head is somewhat loose if you shake her or move her quickly as her head elastic has stretched a little from when she was first produced. Her head is not floppy though and poses very nicely on the neck knob. All her joints are tight and her arms pose. Her hard plastic body is nice and very clean and also has retained good color to it including the face. Her blonde triple stitched wig is in the perfect original set with wide bangs, and is bright and very shiny. Her face paint is also beautiful with blush to her cheeks, pink eyelids, very long black under lashes and coral pink lips. She never had earrings. She is also wearing a clean white taffeta half slip(waist elastic a little bit relaxed), matching white taffeta panties in clean condition, perfect seamed hose, and New Replaced black elastic high heels. At some time her head elastic stringing should probably be replaced. Her facial paint and shiny hair are really beautiful and she is so pretty. I love the way her hair curls around towards her eyes.
