Sweet Sue is from the early 1950s. She is wearing her original pink rayon and tulle prom dress, with pink lace bodice and peplum and scattered lavender bows. She comes complete matching pink undies and a petticoat with tulle and wire at the hem. The wire is coming loose in spots, but still holding its shape.

She is 24" tall, made of hard plastic. Fully jointed, her walking mechanism still functions - if you move her legs, her head turns from side to side.

Beautiful blue sleep eyes with lashes, excellent facial coloring. Very red lipstick - it was the 1950s, after all! Her saran wig, which could be brushed and styled, appears to be in its original condition, just a bit compressed from being wrapped in tissue for so long. She obviously was never displayed much, because her will still smells faintly of the styling solution that was used on these dolls.

Her shoes are original and pink, but the bow is missing from the right shoe. She wears a half-string of pearls around her neck, which were added at some point - they're pearls on wire, so they just fit around her neck without a closure.

On the back of her neck, she is stamped "Amer. Char. Doll."

She's quite heavy, and will need to be well packed, thus the larger-than-usual shipping charge. She's lasted this long; I want her to get to you in the same shape I got her!

I have this listed as U.S. only; if you're outside the U.S. and interested in this item, please message me and I'll be happy to calculate shipping for you. Thanks for looking!
