She is a beauty! Cissy is clean and has no stains, chews or odors. She has a small hairline crack on the top of her right leg. She has some inner thigh and neck rubs, but not bad. She has a wonderful, fresh, matte finish complexion. Beautiful blue eyes and thick, full original eye lashes. Her original blonde wig is in its original set. It has never been combed out. Nice blush on the back of her hands and at her knees. Nice well matching arms. Her legs are tight at the hip sockets and her knees are also tight. Obviously, this doll was never played with! Her outfit is very nice also. I soaked her dress in the gentlest of cleaners to see if I could remove a bit of yellow stain around the waist from her belt. It did lessen it, but there is still a slight yellowing there. It is covered by the belt when it is in place. The dress has no other stains, rips or holes. It is bright and it is tagged. Her slip and panties have had new elastic at the waist. They were not laundered. The panties also had a bit of stabilizer placed on the inside by the leg lace where the leg had rubbed small holes in the satin. Her nylons are nice and have a small hole in one heel. Her shoes are also original to her and have lost a bit of the elastic stretch. They do stay on though. The belt is fragile as these belts have not survived well through the years. The fabric has lost some of it’s velvet type covering and the belt clasp, though intact now, is also fragile. The only clothing item not original is her hat. I reconstructed her a look alike one. It is of stretch velveteen and is embellished with a flat gross grain ribbon, 2 vintage roses, and lovely hat netting. It has a black hair pin to hold it in place. Her hat/shoe box has a spot on the top that is missing some of it’s finish. It is marked on the bottom “black”. Although this outfit is one of Cissy’s more common ones, can one ever say that a beautiful Cissy like this one looks “common” in anything? I do not photo shop or alter my pictures in any way. Please refer to them! PICTURES ARE PART OF THE DESCRIPTION. I deal with vintage dolls and items. I try my best to describe all the positive and negatives of my dolls.
