G’day from Down Under I’ve been collecting Madame Alexander dolls, and in particular Alexanderkins, for quite a lot of years now. Started with Cissy, Lissy and Maggie, and then moved on to the smaller dolls when space became an issue. Having recently downsized our living arrangements yet again (which means even less room for displaying my dolls) I have struggled with the idea of letting some of them go (I have around 100, many of them pretty close to mint condition) but now I realise it’s time to do this. This one is a 1955 straight leg walker, blonde triple stitched wig is lovely set, and wearing “Wendy Goes to Rodeo”; suede cloth outfit trimmed with fringe and felt. Hair is in braids with green ribbons and she has green boots with gold painted design. The sombrero-style hat is trimmed with same braid as on her outfit. The elastic chin strap on the hat is very relaxed, and I haven’t attempted to tighten it. I prefer my dolls to be as original as possible, and this girl is all original. Of course one doesn’t usually expect to achieve book price these days, but it is a guide as to the rarity and value of this doll. Of course the market always determines the price of anything offered for sale. Flutter eyes are a deep blue and move freely. Being a 1955 alexkin, she has no under-eye lashes, and as you can see her face colour is still lovely. The only minor flaw I can detect is a slight brown mark on her left inner knee, which again I haven’t tried to change. She has (I believe) her original stringing, and her legs are a tad relaxed, meaning that she finds it difficult to stand on her own, so a future owner may choose to restring her legs, an easy enough task, but one which I’ll leave to the new owner. The pictures speak for themselves, but please – if you have any questions at all, let me know and I’ll do my best to respond quickly.
