This is a 1995 Special Edition Helen Kish Little Match Girl Doll produced in a Limited Edition of 950. She is marked on her back 707/950. This doll was the winner of the 1995 Dolls Award of Excellence. She is from the Childhood Favorites Collection and measures 12.5 Inches tall. LMG is a jointed vinyl doll jointed at the neck, shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. She was previously owned by an adult collector and is in pristine clean condition. She comes with her original red knit sweater, gray wool hat and scarf, checked skirt and black stockings (I am not sure if she came with shoes but this doll is not wearing any), matchsticks taped to the back of the wrist tag, wrist hang tag, original box and Certificate of Authenticity. The box is in excellent condition, but has some fade to blue to the lavender color. For reference, please see Helen Kish The Artist and Her Dolls by Louise Fecher page 64, and in Jan Foulke’s Guide to Dolls page 184.
