This is a MADAME ALEXANDER Cissy who is in amazing condition and all original. I have carefully inspected this doll including shining a flash light on her legs and there are no cracks or splits of any kind and she has a beautiful face with very good coloring and gorgeous blue eyes. Her blonde hair is in its original perfect set. The only flaw is the white dotted netting on the hat which is in fragile condition. I just leave the hat on the doll and don’t touch it. I don’t see this hat often and this one is very good. I don’t believe this hat was ever taken off the doll. The navy blue dress is nice and full with no stains or holes. Her matching bolero is also very nice. She does have two slips which I do think one was added but makes the dress stand out even better. The perfect pink and gold hatbox is empty and comes with her. This doll is exactly as I bought her years ago and I do not undress these original dolls. No international orders please and Thanks so much for looking.

Here for your consideration is a lovely blonde vintage Madame Alexander 21 Cissy Doll dressed in her minty tagged navy blue Cissy outfit from 1955. This outfit is often referred to as “Navy with Bolero 1955″. Dress (Mint): The dark navy blue dress and matching bolero are in mint condition. The taffeta is crisp. There are no rips, tears, holes, stains, or odors. There are five snaps running down the back of the dress and they are all present and attached. The armhole tulle is there. The little white grosgrain bow is attached as is the snap. Hat (Mint): The hat is in mint condition. The elastic that secures the hat under Cissy’s chin is present and not stretched. The wire within the brim of the hat is flexible and allows the hat to be molded. I dipped the brim in a bit just because I liked the look but I flatten the brim out when I removed the hat. Slip (Excellent) : The slip is vintage and there are no rips, tears, holes, stains, or odors. I took the waist band in a little bit because the elastic had stretched. This slip is exactly the length of the dress so if it is not tight on the doll’s waist it can slip down and reveal itself. The rick rack is a little larger than I’m use to seeing on Cissy’s slips. I don’t know if larger rick rack was used back in 1955 or if the rick rack was added later. Regardless, the slip is beautifully full and works perfectly with the dress. Panties (Not Original): Cissy is missing her original panties. She is wearing a sweet vintage girdle instead. (Perhaps she thought she needed the support). Stockings (Excellent) : The stockings are in excellent condition. They are vintage but were not made by the Alexander doll Company. I say this because the top elastic is brown rather than pink. The nylons have retained most of their elasticity. Shoes (Not Original) : The navy blue shoes are not original but they go nicely with this outfit. Gloves (Very Good): The vintage white nylon gloves are in very good condition for their age. There is a little staining on the seams of the fingers from the thread. Hat Box (Excellent): Pink Madame Alexander hat box with the. Fashion Academy Awards medallion attached to the elastic. The box is in excellent condition and empty. Two strand pearl necklace and two pearl bracelets. Doll (Excellent) : Cissy has beautiful facial coloring, full lashes, and crystal clear blue sleep eyes. Her blonde hair is thick and almost in its original set. Both of her knees bend with ease as do her arms. There are no cracks or splits. She will come to you wearing a hairnet so that her hair stays in place. Her only drawback and it’s minor is that her head has a tendency to tilt back a little when you lift her up but it’s easily put back into place and it will stay where you place it.

This gorgeous creature is Cissy, made by Madame Alexander in 1956. She comes from an estate collection that featured many Cissy dolls and their vast wardrobe. I do not believe this doll has ever even been undressed. In fact, I did not undress her because her factory wrist tag is still attached to her left wrist, and I was not able to pull the sleeve of her bolero off her arm for fear of hurting the paper tag. So, I just pulled her clothing up, down and to the side to show you as much of her body as I can. However, I have a lot more photos; if you wish to see a close up of a particular part of this doll, please let me know and I’ll show you. Cissy is wearing her aqua taffeta dress with cap sleeves and a drop waist, with a fitted bodice. It closes with four square original snaps in back. The dress has the Cissy tag sewn into the back neckline. She wears a black velvet bolero with pink rose corsage in front. Underneath she wears her original pink tulle and taffeta half slip. She has on nylon stockings with seams up the back, and her strappy black velvet high heel sandals / shoes. Cissy has her original black velvet headband type hat with attached flowers and black netting decorated with tiny pink flowers. The hat has a gold chin strap. She wears an aquamarine rhinestone ring on her right hand, and her original pearl earrings. There is a pearl elastic bracelet on her left hand but there are spaces without pears and it seems to me to not be original. The wrist tag is the charming “To all little girls” letter design from Madame Alexander. Cissy has aqua blue eyes that open and close as they should, and all her eyelashes. Her eyes match her dress pretty well! Her makeup is pretty and still quite vibrant. Her arms and head hold a pose. I don’t see any splits to the plastic or cracks. There is a little white scuff to her right way upper thigh. No chews or anything of that nature. Between the ring finger and little finger of her right hand is a little…. See close up photo; it looks like a factory thing, to the vinyl. Very small and I didn’t notice until I blew up the photos. The outfit is lovely but not perfect. I see some yellowing and spots on the dress; might soak out with Oxyclean or similar but I didn’t even think to try. No holes in the stockings, a modern miracle! Shoes fit nice and snug. The hat is darling but the net has several tears. The hat seems to be pinned down to her head so I did not try to remove it. Cissy is from a nonsmoking home.
