Missy Buttercup's birth date on the certificate of authenticity is Feb 1991 in Belpre, Ohio #102 out of 5000.
Missy-Buttercup model #VMI-BC and she is dressed in a beautiful lacey yellow dress with a yellow headband (a little stretched I think from lifting hair to look at name) and white leather shoes. She has red hair.
She is 15" long. Her head is 4" x 4".She has a soft body.
Lee Middleton hand signed the back of her neck in pen, as shown in the photos. She is VERY well-known for her dolls. This doll looks so real with how much detail Lee Middleton put into making her doll.
Missy-Buttercup comes with her original box (the box is in really nice condition for vintage. It still has the tissue paper inside. She also comes with her certificate of authenticity, a booklet on Lee Middleton dolls (which has a page on Missy-Buttercup), and a little white mini bible that came along with this Lee Middleton doll and says Middleton dolls on the back cover.
The doll is in great vintage condition. The body is excellent. The hair is a little messy. The dress is in perfect condition.
Lee Middleton passed away in 1997.
I love her and I hope you will too. She will make anyone smile! She has the cutest little child excitement on her face! Would make a wonderful Christmas gift for that special little girl or doll collector.
p.s. there was a receipt in the box dated March 1991 for the purchase of this doll that states she was purchased for $138.00 at that time.
If you have any questions or would like to see more photos, please convo me.
