This wide-eyed charmer is Flora McFlimsey, produced by Madame Alexander in 1953 for only one year. The doll was based on the beloved character in Marian Foster Curtiss' (Mariana) series of children's books about the adventures of Miss Flora McFlimsey. She has a vinyl head made from the Cissy mold with set blue eyes. Her five-piece body is hard plastic. Flora wears her original off-white dress, trimmed with eyelet and fastening with three tiny buttons in the back (the dress has lost its label, but this is a documented dress). Her slip fastens with the square snaps typical of Alexander and underneath she wears matching lace-trimmed bloomers. She wears thigh-high dark chocolate stockings and adorable two-tone shoes. Miss McFlimsey has lost her little straw hat to the decades, but still wears the ribbon bow around her face. Overall she is in wonderful condition and is 15 inches tall. Her vinyl face has slightly darkened over the years and there are faint lines around her waist from her doll stand. Her dress is in very good condition, with no holes or tears, but may need some cleaning; there are two tiny dark spots on the front left of her skirt above the hem and another on the back. Sniffing her closely, she has a very faint musty or slightly acrid smell.
