We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a FABULOUS ALL ORIGINAL 18" MADAME ALEXANDER VINTAGE COMPOSITION SCARLETT O'HARA DOLL IN RARE OUTFIT!
Most times when we see the composition Scarlett dolls, they are typically in green velvet coats or plaid taffeta gowns; this lovely doll has the more hard to find version of the elaborate outfits created by Madame Alexander that has a softer, yet DRAMATIC APPEAL----she will stand out in ANY collection!
This FICTIONAL HEROINE doll is dressed in her factory original TAGGED hard to find GOLD ORGANDY gown with fancy RUFFLED TRIM around her sleeve top and cuffs and in two tiers around the hem bottom, with fabulous fine natural straw PICTURE HAT embellished with realistic fabric mum flowers! The dress has never been laundered and the organdy fabric is still CRISP, but we have noted there is some normal age fading to the color with very light staining on the back and a couple of small dots (we have not attempted to see if they can be removed) are on the front of the hem, but overall it is in good condition and displays nicely on the doll! Please note that in most of the pictures the flash of the camera makes the dress appear slightly lighter in color than it actually appears in person; the truer color of the organdy is reflected in the picture showing the dress tag, where the organdy fabric is more like a pale golden yellow.
Underneath she wears her original white cotton HOOP SKIRT with whalebone reinforcement around the hem in order to make the gown balloon out at the bottom, just as Southern Belles would have worn in the 1860's! She also has her original white COTTON PANTALOONS with two tiers of ruffles around the bottom of each leg, and her original white rayon stockings with black PATENT LEATHER shoes that still have their original bow tie embellishments complete the outfit!
Scarlett has her original jointed COMPOSITION BODY in amazing condition; we do not see any noticeable crazing and the patina is still smooth, which is so hard to find in dolls made of this material that are almost eighty years old! The back of her neck is marked with raised letters "MADAME ALEXANDER", and she does have her original stringing; the arms and legs are a little loose but the head still holds a pose nicely!
She has her original black HUMAN HAIR wig, and her face is just beautiful, with lightly BLUSHED CHEEKS, sweetly painted red ROSEBUD MOUTH, and her bluish green SLEEP EYES are perfectly clear, unclouded with age, and still have their thick and full original SABLE LASHES and dramatic original SMOKEY EYE SHADOW giving her a true FEMME FATALE look! Other than minor age related issues which we have mentioned, she is in overall good condition and makes an IMPRESSIVE PRESENTATION in any collection-----she will not disappoint!
This FABULOUS ALL ORIGINAL 18" MADAME ALEXANDER VINTAGE COMPOSITION SCARLETT O'HARA DOLL IN RARE OUTFIT is being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane for your buying consideration-------a CHARMING ADDITION to any doll collection!
