This is a C1940 Madame Alexander 14” to 15” inch Scarlett O’Hara Composition Doll wearing the green velvet bodice dress and hat with floral print skirt. She has the Wendy Ann face. This is the Scarlett that had the green velvet coat that went over the dress, but the coat is no longer with the doll. This doll is a museum deaccession from the Boxford Historical Document Center Museum in Boxford, Essex County, Massachusetts. She bears the museum’s small cardboard tag. She is lovely. Her composition body is in excellent clean condition with tight stringing (she has recently been restrung) with very little light paint crazing. Her eyes have crazed/crackled as well. Her black human hair wig is beautiful and in the original set.
Her gorgeous dress has some fade or discoloration to the green velvet bodice and hat, and the floral print dress skirt has dimmed and foxed with age spots all over here and there over time. The fabric has also aged in color from dust and storage. The hat is missing the other half of the green feather trim. I could find no tag on the dress, so only the coat may have been tagged. Her white hoop skirt and matching pantaloons have aged tan in color, and the pantaloons waist elastic has stretched so now the waist is pinned. She is all original with white stockings and green leatherette side snap shoes with green bows at the toes. This doll is in original condition including her lovely facial paint- smokey eyeshadow, red lips, all her eyelashes, painted underlashes, and multistroke brown eyebrows, and has been preserved by the museum all these years.
