These dolls are wonderful. I have a couple in my own collection and they are really fun to own. They were sold with wax cylinders that have a nursery rhyme on it such as London Bridge, Old Mother Hubbard...etc. This doll does NOT have any cylinders that will be shipped with her. Mae Starr is a HUGE 30 inches tall. her compo is in wonderful condition with very minimal paint flake and hardly no crazing at all. She has paint flake/paint rub on the top area/shoulder area of her arm. It will be completely covered by clothing and is in a non conspicuous area. I see no repaints or repairs.Has paint split on sole of one foot. It can be seen in photos.Also very light paint split along seam of legs that are stable and hardly noticeable. Please use zoom feature so you can see her well. She is a shoulderplate on a cloth body with compo limbs and head. she is clean with no foul odors. Original human hair wig in nice condition. working sleep eyes with all lash.has all fingers. These dolls were part of an advertising campaign for newspapers and were given a way lots of times as contest prizes. her phonograph mechanism seems to be in tact. She is missing the crank/handle for winding her. I can not tell you if her mechanism works because of the missng ctank. she is priced accordingly. If you like the large dolls like I do than this doll is for you! She does not have to play nursey rhymes to enjoy her. she is still a fabulos doll for display.Highly collectible. she is HUGE! Marked Mae Starr on back of shoulderplate. Display ready and a really great doll! You will love her! she is heavy and she is BIG.
