This is a C1958 Madame Alexander 9 inch hard plastic Basic Cissette Pink Ballerina Doll 813 in her Box. For dress reference, please see Cissette A Complete Guide to the Vintage Alexander Dolls by Marjorie E. Merrod MD page 71. This pristine ballerina has been dressed in this ballerina outfit for a long long time and even perhaps from day one. Someone glued the basic Cissette pink bow to the top of her head. Cissette is clean and pristine with a perfect triple stitched shiny dark blonde wig in the perfect set and curl, molded lash blue sleep eyes, high blush color to her cheeks, coral pink lips, (never had earring holes in her ears), arms hold a pose, knees click into position nicely, tight hip joints, and is gorgeous. She is wearing her pristine pink tulle tutu made of pink satin lined with white organdy, neckline trimmed with with pink tulle ruching, and trimmed at the waist with a corsage of pink flowers. The straps of the bodice pass through eyelets at the back of her tutu and tie in a pink satin bow. The fabric has not grayed and is still nice and pink. She has been carefully taken care of all these years. She is also wearing perfect pink tights and pink ballet slippers. The Cissette tag would be inside the costume. She is pristine and perfect and has worn this outfit forever. Just simply beautiful. The box is in clean excellent condition with neck liner and is marked Tosca (which technically she might have been called then as her hair is a dark blonde?) and 913.
