This pretty hard plastic doll is Meg of "Little Women," created by Madame Alexander in the 1950s. She is from a set of Little Women dolls out of a local estate, but I am offering them separately because the condition of the dolls varies and I figure some collectors may want just a doll or two to complete their own set. This lovely Meg is in wonderful condition. Her hair is still in its original hair net or snood and she still proudly wears a tiny gold tag on her wrist commemorating the fashion academy award won by Madame Alexander. Her eyes have full lush lashes and open and close smoothly, her cheeks are softly blushed, and her lips are bright red. Meg's clothing is clean and bright, with only minimal surface dust or fading and her dress is clearly tagged (the dress is a softer pink than in some of the pictures, which make it look hot fuchsia!). In fact, I do not think this doll has ever been undressed and I was hesitant to do so because I did not want to risk damaging her delightful outfit, tearing the tiny paper tag, or disturbing her hair. There is a tiny gray faint spot or smudge under her right eye. The clothing and hair have no strong or musty smells. Her stringing is still tight and when I very gently lifted the head a little from the socket and sniffed the inside of the body, it smelled a little acrid or faintly sour, but not the eye-watering rotten vomit smell of some early hard plastic dolls.
