Madame Alexander’s “Cissy” in tagged floral tulle gown. I believe this to be #2282 from 1958. Her dress, gloves, hat and jewelry is all original. Her hair is untouched and has the space bar. She is a gorgeous example, Ive owned her for about 20 years and shes been in a glass case on display the whole time (no sunlight, no pets, no smoking). I have enjoyed her, but its time to downsize. She does have some flaws, which are detailed below. Dress has large tear in the front and small tear on the left side. It looks like all pieces are there so this could be repaired by a skilled person. You cannot see the tears when shes on display, theres so much tulle the tears disappear. While there are no smells, her underskirts have browned with age. The flowers on her hat have some browning as well. I believe her tag, shoes and pantyhose are a very good replacement, just too new looking to be original. A little green stain on her ring finger from the metal of the ring. Arms have flecks of paint from the dress and some discoloration. Small discoloration on forehead. Her eyes are crystal clear and open and close smoothly. Her stringing is a bit loose, but she still holds any pose and displays nicely. The item “Madame Alexander’s Cissy in tagged floral tulle gown” is in sale since Saturday, October 30, 2021.

A Lovely Example Of Mme. Alexander's Cissy Walks The Dog- With Extras

Born in 1955, “Cissy Walks the Dog” is one of the early Cissy dolls from Madame Alexander. Dressed for a stroll down Park Avenue with her little pooch, she is in her complete and correct outfit, plus a few additions. The veiling on her hat is just awesome, and she is wearing a perfect wool jersey top with no moth damage. It is extremely difficult to find those tops without holes. This one does not have its Cissy tag, but is undeniably original. She will come to you with two skirts, and I’ll explain further down in the description. Her slip and panties are unwashed and still have crispness. Their original rayon-rubber elastic has been replaced by a prior owner, so no sagging waists in either. She has her excellent Cissy hose and the correct hot pink high heels with great elastic. Oh yes, and she has her pale blue tied-on pearls and “diamond” ring. And not to forget the pooch on a black velvet leash. Additions to her outfit are a black velveteen purse with gold chain handle and a vintage fur wrap that color matches with her top very well. The wrap has a clip on the underside for fastening purposes. I don’t know if it’s original or replicated, but it will be included with the doll. THE DOLL: Cissy had never been undressed in all the time I’ve had her, but I needed to do so to check everything out. She has no cracks in her hard plastic and no tears in her vinyl. She has original blush on her hands and knees, and her coloring is uniform. Her facial features all look to be original. She has lovely cheek blush, pretty blue eyes that open and close, good lip color, good brows and all of her brush and painted lashes. Her stringing is good and probably original, and her joints all work. I really don’t see any rubs on the inside of the legs at the top, which is rather remarkable. I don’t think she has been handled much during her lifetime. I have never done anything to alter it. I’m pretty sure this Cissy has the additional wig cap incorporated with her wig. I think the ones from 1955 were the only Cissy dolls that had this. She’s 20 inches tall and has joints at the head, shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. A pretty girl–even in the nude. THE SKIRTS: When this Cissy became part of my collection, I took her out of her original velveteen skirt and used instead a “Walks the Dog” skirt that I already had. This was done simply because I though the magenta waistband and jewel embellishments were prettier on my skirt. She was then put in her spot in the doll cabinet. When I began taking photos for the listing several weeks back, a small disaster occurred when removing the skirt from Cissy. I was trying to undo the snap that was in the placket of the skirt. Even using my fingernails, it was very contrary, and when I finally got it open, I somehow had caused a tear in the velveteen right alongside the seam binding of the placket. But a kind, sympathetic and very skilled seamstress came to my rescue (or Cissy’s) and did a great repair job. So Cissy is still in my preferred skirt, but her original skirt, which has no problems, will come along with her. And it doesn’t have a pesky snap in the placket to deal with. I have pictures of her original skirt if you request them. I have also been advised that the fabric Alexander used in these particular skirts tends to become fragile over time. THE HAT: As mentioned earlier, the hat has wonderful veiling. It also has the little black metal decoration on the back. The hat has its original thin black elastic chin strap which has lost some stretch. It can be put under her hair in the back for some stabilization or not used at all. Once the doll is in place, the hat will stay on her head with no problems. I feel like the little strap is fragile and shouldn’t be stressed. If you’re in the market for a “Cissy Walks the Dog, ” you would have to look a long time to find one this nice. She’s incredible at the age of 65. There are many pictures available if you would like to see the wool jersey top off the doll, or her other skirt, or her hangtag, etc. Thank you for taking the time to read all of the description and to view and enlarge the photos.
