1953 Nancy Ann Style Show Dash of Spice in Original Box Pristine 1504
This is a Stunning and Pristine 1953 Nancy Ann Style Show Dash of Spice Doll in her Original Box number 1504. Dash of Spice is a GORGEOUS Style Show doll never played with or displayed and has spent her life in the box. She has her original silver foil wrist hang tag marked Dash of Spice 1504. She is a strung (non walker)18" hard plastic doll with very tight stringing, no paint touch ups or repairs, fresh smelling, beautiful pristine clean body, gorgeous facial paint with beautiful high color blush to the cheeks, strong dark eyeshadow, painted underlashes, full brush lashes, sparkling blue eyes, original bright red lips and gorgeous brunette hair. Nancy Ann Style Show dolls always have elegant lavish costuming and this Dash of Spice is no different. Her long red and white taffeta gown is beautiful, bright and crisp. The skirt is interesting as it is an iridescent fabric and shimmers in the light having a different appearance depending upon the light direction. White threads were woven one way and red and white stripes were woven in the opposite direction giving the fabric the shimmering look that makes it look so elegant. The gown has lace down the bodice front and back. The lace has separated along the back seam on both sides where it attaches to the red gros grain ribbon trim. I had a Dash of Spice a couple of years ago with the exact issue in exactly the same place so this must be a characteristic issue of this gown. There is one small smudge to the skirt about the size of a green pea. The long white cotton hooped petticoat and panties have some light yellow aging to the fabric. The seamed hose is tight and perfect and the and the black satin center snap shoes are pristine. Topping her head is a gorgeous straw hat with floral trim and wide red satin ribbon trim. The box is in excellent appropriate condition with the box liner and properly marked Dash of Spice/1504. Many more pictures are available upon request.
