Vintage All Original Chatty Cathy Doll
We are presenting a wonderful vintage Chatty Cathy doll.
Chatty stands approximately 20" tall and wearing her original clothes. Her clothing includes: a dress with red velvet bodice with off-white Peter Pan collar, off-white gathered skirt with pleats and lace,red satin ribbon tie and attached slip. The dress has the original label which reads: "Charmin' Chatty" and dated "1962 Mattel, Inc. Imported from Japan". It closes in the back with two snaps. We do not see any damage to the dress although it could use a good soak in BIZ. Chatty also wears red tights or leotard with attached navy blue faux leather shoes. The shoes have brown soles. There is no label in the tights although we believe them to be original. The elastic around the waist is stretched out a bit and the back seam has is torn at the waistline. She also wears her beautiful red velvet coat with faux fur collar. The coat is fully lined in off-white satin and the original label is present. It reads: "Chatty Cathy by Mattel". The coat has two pockets and closes with a single snap at the neck. We do not see any damage to the coat although it, too, could use a good soak in BIZ.
Chatty has golden brown hair which appears to be mostly in the original set with bangs and red velvet ribbon headband. The headband closes with a snap at the back under her hair. She has blue eyes and black lashes which open and close as they should. Her face color is good with freckles, pink lips with two front teeth and a charming smile.
Chatty has her original pull cord which works but the sound that it makes when it retracts is not speech. Her sound box is on the front of her chest and covered in flesh colored cloth. Chatty is made of hard plastic with the exception her head is rubber.
Overall, Cathy is in quite good condition. She does not have any odors although she could use a gently cleaning. A really nice vintage doll!!!
