She has been stored in her box in my doll cabinet until now. She is a very beautiful doll and hardly played with at all.
Her hair is still in the top original knot. The bottom rubber band is still there but has broken.Her make up is all original. She has all her finger and toe polish.
When I stored her away, she did not have the browning at the ears as you see it. I was totally surprised myself. She did have her original earrings in when I got her and I removed them. I don't know if this is a later reaction from the metal posts.I or the original owner never did this. So I don't have an explaination. Her vinyl has not whitened really. She has actually stayed more flesh color in areas. So she has faded different colors over her body. You can see where her shoes straps are is whiter. The pictures make her body look whiter then it is in person.
It actually looks kind of tan. Parts of it look a littler browner in color like her forearms. You can see this in the pictures. She has a few usual little vinyl markings on her body from the molding. There is a little knick in one breast but nothing else major.She is wearing her original bathing suit and no. I don't think she is for the very fussy collector who worries about every little thing for she is not perfect. Please check the photos and ask any questions I may have missed. If you read the description earlier, please reread it again. My home has always been smoke free and she has no odors.
