You are purchasing a Madame Alexander Kins Doll 1953 SLW with a Jumper Taffeta, Matching bonnet, and Taffeta Bloomers attached to an organdy blouse original socks and the shoes may be a later 50s alexander wendy doll shoes with a box and lid. She has a blonde color hair and green eyes.
She is in pat smith book on page 21 as a 1953 or early 1954 walker. Her body does do the walker movement.
She is in cute displayable condition. I do not know if her box is the correct box as it has no number or writing with information. Its just an alexander smaller doll box with someone's handwriting saying old doll on it. Her outfit is gorgeous and her cheeks are a nice coloring they have an orangey blush which looks really nice with the blonde hair.The outfit I believe is the correct coloring an in between red and pink I do not think its faded as it appears that way in the book and if its faded all three pieces are exactly the same color in all areas so its an even which I think thats almost impossible so I do not believe its faded. The outfit has minor soiling and a few minor stains all shown in the close ups overall its crisp and nice coloring. The organdy has a few minor pin holes.
By the waist seam of the organdy there is a very small separation you can display without mends it is shown in the close ups. There is a small pop stitch on the crotch seam but no holes.
The elastic is good in the bloomers. I believe the snaps may of been replaced as they are circle not square. The socks one has a small hole and both have stretch at the top.
The shoes I think are replaced with later 50s or early 60s alex kins shoes as they are the suede with smooth bottoms and not the special stitching they used in the early shoes. They have some wear mostly on the bottom. The lace trims minor pulls in areas few minor broken lace threads. The hat has a small edge tear on the ribbon as shown in the close ups. She has some rubs to her colored blush as shown and some minor rubs to the eye brows.
She needs a minor cleaning especially under her neck I do not clean old dolls with fear of damaging. She has minor scratches mostly on her arms and legs and I think some of it is factory as I see this frequently on the kins and minor wear. She does have a few very tiny splits on where the parts meet. They are on both upper thighs, her hip, and one on the neck which is very hard to see as her head covers it. All shown in the close ups.
Her wig is nice with only minor fly aways and minor looseness to the curls its mostly in a nice setting. She is a pale color but her make up pops out. Her eyes open and closed. I gave you close ups of everything. She is still a very displayable doll I just wanted to detail any flaw I saw.If there is anything I missed please ask its not intentional as I really try to give great details and pictures in my listings.
