Madame Alexander's fashionable "big girl" dolls were every little girl's dream in the 1950s & now collectors dream of dolls like these. With just 1 owner since childhood, Cissy & Elise spent 5 decades packed in this trunk of cherry metal with white stripes & brass fittings. It still has its key & Cissy has her "diamond" ring & beaded bag! (To replace the ring of a careless doll, an owner recently had to spend $35 at e-Bay.)
A 20" blonde, our blue-eyed Cissy has the rosiest cheeks & knees + original tagged dress of factory-crisp taffeta, styled like a jumper over a blouse. Outfit includes white straw hat, lace petticoat, lace-trimmed panties & seamed nylons in fine condition. Blue shoes need lining & elastic. Here she wears a vintage teddy, untagged but high quality.
Elise dolls were often sold in basic form. Ours is a hazel-eyed blonde in classic MA teddy (in fine shape), pink heeled shoes with tightened elastic & frankly shattered nylons (now replaced by new pantyhose) With jointed ankles, Elise measures 16" toe-dancing, 15 1/2" flat.
Very suitable for display, both are unfaded, with pretty hair & "posable" jointed arms & knees. The star-spangled trunk, about 19 1/2" x 11" x 10", has deep drawers holding new finery & vintage clothes.
