This is a lovely and loved Vintage Madame Alexander Cissy Bride Doll in her original outfit. It belongs to my mother who thinks she received it in the late 1940s. Some research indicates it might be model #1201 which would put it at 1955 (but that would be kind of old for my mother to be playing with dolls). Cissy has “MADAME ALEXANDER” embossed on the nape of her neck. I tried to show the ALEX part as I didn’t want to peel back the hair. She has the “Cissy” tag on the dress, so it was the original dress. She has movable joints. She is 21 inches tall. She has stockings on both her legs and even has her original garter belt. Somewhere along the way she lost her shoes. Her foot shape indicates that she had high heels, so perhaps she tossed them aside before dancing! Note that she has her lovely bracelet. And still has her eyelashes. Cissy’s veil is very long, and the end part is torn in places. However, this does not detract from her radiance. I have tried to show her petticoat and her undergarments. The sleeve details and rhinestones on the dress are intact. Dress is a tad yellowed and could use a nice dry cleaning. Comes from a NO SMOKING household.

John Robert Powers Model Doll by Madame Alexander. It is my understanding that John Robert Powers ran a modeling agency in New York City in the early 1950s. In December of 1951, he started a fashion line, and he commissioned dolls from Madame Alexander as part of the promotion to attract fashionable mommies and their little girls. The Powers Model Dolls all had the Maggie face like this one. These dolls are very rare today. This Maggie doll is wearing the Powers outfit with the grey skirt, blouse, and red hat. Beneath she wears a white petticoat, panties, and nylons. Her red shoes have tiny heels that I have never seen on another doll – maybe because she is a model? Her skirt is decorated with a lock and key chatelaine-type accessory, and her blouse has little rhinestones. She carries her original oval John Robert Powers hatbox with her little grooming accessories inside. Inside the box are little hair care accessories. Her eyes do not close; they are stuck in the open position and I don’t know how to fix that. The left eye has some tiny white residue around it, and I don’t know what it is. She has nice eyelashes. Her hair has some flyaways. It’s in sort of a half-updo, with part of it pulled back from her face with a tiny bun at the top, but hanging down in the back. There are no weird or unpleasant smells. There is no “sour milk” smell or any weird smell that I think indicates “hard plastic disease”. This doll is not perfect!! She is not mint!!! I have not done anything to change this doll. I have never taken off her clothes. No weird or unpleasant smells. The grey doll stand is NOT INCLUDED. PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS, BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU!!! IF THERE IS SOMETHING I HAVE NOT MENTIONED THAT YOU WANT TO KNOW, PLEASE ASK!!!
