Madame Alexander dolls were among the best things about my childhood. Their beauty and refinement probably influenced me than anything else, except books. These little treasures teach lessons of taste and care, without a word spoken. That point is well illustrated by the display of Princess Anne’s toys at Sandringham, which includes a 1950s “Elise” just like mine -- obviously played with often, but with respect and love. Because nobody who owns an Alexander doll really wants to give it up, some of the finest vintage examples remain off the market for a lifetime and those that do become available are highly prized.

This charming vintage "Snow White" from Madame Alexander's enchanting Storybook Collection -- part of the 1968-1985 Classic Series -- stands 14 inches tall and is in virtually untouched condition. Always a display piece, never played with, she still wears her tag (slightly curled with age) and resides within her original box, which still contains tissue and the neck support. It shows little wear and bears the highly collectible model number 1555.

Our little beauty has a Mary Anne face, still as vividly colorful as when it was painted. Her black hair remains perfectly styled, parted in the middle and combed to the back, where it curls. Her sleep eyes function perfectly and the lashes are real, not molded, amplified by gracefully painted eyelashes below and to the sides of her eyes. Dressed fully in gossamer white, with silver trimming on her cape and shimmering silver shoes, she's clearly a dream come true for a lucky little girl or grown-up doll collector. Provenance is an East Coast estate.

Keep Ginny's shoes tidy with this vivid tartan vinyl shoe bag - in mint condition even after almost 60 years! From an extensive 1-owner doll collection, it's shown as item #842 in the 1954 "Now I Walk" catalogue. You can read "Ginny's Shoe Bag" at the top (though my photo doesn't show it *G*). Hanging holes have never been perforated. Vintage Vogue closet accessories don't come any nicer than this.

Like other Ginny items, this will also fit Alexanderkins (Madame Alexander's smallest dolls). Their clothes and shoes are the same size.

If you collect these wonderful small dolls from long ago, you know it's a huge challenge to find authentic footwear for them. That makes this group from one estate a great find. Included are ice skates and roller skates from the Ginny line by Vogue Dolls, plus pretty pink ballet slippers from Madame Alexander and red cowgirl boots that I can't identify for sure. All will fit both Ginny and the Alexanderkins.

The things are in reasonably nice condition, considering that they're toys 60 years old. The white ice skates could use a gentle cleaning, the slippers need their ribbons reattached and the boots have frayed edges that a trim with sharp manicure scissors should take care of neatly. You may also want to clean the rust off the roller skate wheels, using sandpaper or a suitable polish, but I personally enjoy the patina. With the footwear comes a round carrier box that held one pair of skates, when new; it's rather battered now, but good to have.

On Hold
Just in time for the holidays, here's a seriously cute pair of vintage angels in heavenly condition. Of glossy white china with blue sashes and collars, these winged cherubs stand about 3 3/4" high and have bases incised with the name AVA. One has a short mop of curls, so I believe he's a little boy. The girl has a ponytail topped with an azure bow. When you face them toward one another, they lean forward with a little pucker.

These reached us from a New Mexico estate and, according to a family member, they date from the 1960s or 1970s. The light was poor, when I photographed them, so please e-mail if you'd like for me to try again. They're really a very pure white.
