This sweeter than sweet 18-inch American Character Sweet Sue Walker comes from her original owner, who was delighted to find the young lady under the Christmas Tree circa 1954. With the exception of her shoes, which were replaced in the 1970s, this doll is all original and in wonderful condition (except for a minor nose rub). Her walking mechanism still works perfectly (she turns her head with each step she takes); her pretty blue sleep eyes retain their original dark, thick lashes and her original dark golden blonde rooted wig (saran?) is in beautiful condition. She is wearing an ivory brocade party or ballerina dress trimmed in pale-blue tulle netting. Her original light blue rayon satin panties have faded to more of a lavender tone and there is a tear in the netting of her right sleeve, but because it is a puffy, gathered sleeve, the tear is generally not visible when the doll is on display. This charming miss has been well cared for over the years, and is ready to go to a new home. She is clean, free of any mildew, discoloration or odors and comes from a non-smoking environment.
