Avid doll collectors won't be able to help falling in love with this darling Madame Alexander Mother Goose.
The company was established in 1923, by Madame (Beatrice) Alexander.
She was an American entrepreneur who created the first "collectible" dolls based on licensed characters.
The first of these was Scarlet O'Hara from the famous 1939, film Gone With the Wind.
This little lady comes perfectly preserved in her original box and features a lot of gorgeous detail. The Mother Goose 427 is from 1987-89.
She wears a black and white striped dress with a big lacy crinoline underneath. Her lace-trimmed bloomers, little cotton socks and black, velveteen shows match perfectly.
As you can see, Mother Goose also wears a pretty calico over-skirt with light-blue florals on a burgundy background. Her tidy white apron shows in the front and matches her white eyelet shawl.
Finally, the doll wears a pointed felt black hat with golden trim.
The doll's face, body and hands are rendered with gorgeous detail. She is a classic "sleeping" doll, meaning her eyelids close when she is tilted back.
The classic blue box shows a tiny bit of wear around the edges but remains in good condition overall.
The base of the box features the original manufacturer's sticker which includes a picture of the original Madame Alexander's face.
You will also find a style mark reading "Mother Goose 427" as well as the original Marshall Field's retail sticker.
Inside the box, you will find the original paper booklet attached to the doll's wrist.
The booklet includes information on the company as well several colorful pages of more collectible Madame Alexander dolls.
We are so thrilled that this doll remains in absolutely spectacular condition. She is a collector's dream-find for sure!
