Classic Model 850 Brunette Bubble Cut Barbie wearing her original red jersey swimsuit and red open-toe Japan Heels. Made by Mattel from 1964 to 1967, marked on back “Midge T.M. ©1962 Barbie® ©1958 by Mattel, Inc. Patented.” Doll and accessories are in very good, clean condition. Straight leg Barbie’s arms and legs move freely and hold poses tightly. She has two small cut marks on the top back side of one shoulder (see close up photo). Barbie retains approximately 80% of her coral fingernail polish, and 90% of her red toenail polish. She has no stains, marks, nips, chew marks, pinholes or splits. Small single earring holes in each ear with not a hint of green. Nice full bubble with no cuts or missing plugs, excellent dark color with plenty of curl. Gorgeous all-original face paint. One very tiny flake on the lower lip.
Barbie’s original red swimsuit is clean and in very good condition. No holes, runs, pulls or stains. A few loose stitches on one side of the back scoop. Shoes are excellent, one shoe appropriately marked Japan.
This is very pretty Barbie Doll in very good condition. She displays beautifully and will make a lovely model for your vintage fashions.
