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.
