This is a 1957 Alexander 9 inch hard plastic Cissette Doll in her original #941 Navy Taffeta Dress and white Straw Hat. Cissette is about as pristine, crisp and clean as you can get. Everything about her is perfect. There is just a hint (a hint mind you ) of some aging to the three layer white organdy Bertha. For reference, please see Cissette A Complete Guide to the Vintage Alexander Dolls by Marjorie E. Merrod MD page 38. She has a perfect triple stitched blonde wig tied in curls at the nape of her neck, high color to her cheeks, pearl drop earrings, arms hold a pose, tight hips and knees click into position very nicely. All her clothing is about as crisp and perfect as can be as she has never been touched nor undressed. She is wearing a gorgeous, very crisp fitted navy taffeta dress with navy tulle around the arms. The hose and heels are nice and tight to her body, and you can tell that her white taffeta half slip and panties have never been removed. The white straw hat and crisp flowers are pristine as well. The box she is being sold in is marked 900/ Auburn and is the box she has been living in. The lid has three corner breaks. The earrings may have had a pearl teardrop to them, but it is hard to tell. I doubt it on this doll though. A super super doll.
