If you grew up with this girl in the 50s than you know how well loved she is by many little girls of that time period and still well loved TODAY. She is Poor Pitiful Pearl by Brookglad. This is the 1st version of the doll that was made. The other versions were done by Horsman, Glad Toy Co and Tri-Star. Poor Pitiful Pearl was the first sad doll to become popular. The ragged dress, head scarf and quizzical look were copied from a cartoon by William Steig, a cartoonist for the New Yorker Magazine. This Pearl is 17" tall. She is the largest of the dolls that were made. She is in nice condition but needs a good once over cleaning. I took a warm water rag to her without any soap and all of her dirt just wiped easily away with no stains and no issues at all. I did a quick wipe down so once you get her home you can spend a little more time giving her some TLC and she will be absolutely beautiful again. Nothing major to do. No heavy scrubbing. Just warm water and a soft rag will do. Working clear sleep eyes with all lash. Over all good color. She has no haircuts. wears original dress. Has her original box and has her original paper pamphlet which shows inside how to style her hair differently and gave little girls the opportunity to purchase more outfits for the doll. Box in good to fair played with condition. Has writing on it as can be seen in pic. She also comes with her authentic blue party dress. She is missing her black oil cloth shoes and socks and her white party shoes and socks. I added a black pair of shoes she can wear for now. I usually do not find the larger version of this doll with her box. Usually I have the smaller Pearls in my shop so grab her while you can. I always have multiple requests for the special dolly. SO HERE SHE IS>>>>>
