She wears her original yellow Swiss dot cotton dress trimmed with lace. White cotton slip and matching bloomers. White leatherette shoes and rayon socks. Her hair ribbon appears to be original.
The doll is in excellent, all original condition. No crazing!Appears to have never been played with but she has been displayed and her clothes, which have never been washed,show considerable shelfdust.You may choose to launder them. There is also some dust on the top of her hair.
I noticed two tiny paint chips on her limbs. One on her left leg and one on the back of her right arm. Other than these minor flaws, the composition is excellent.
I read that this doll was available for selling subscriptions to "The Philadelphia Ledger" and that it was on the market only a short time.
A very nice example!
