In particular, Brides have been my passion since childhood. Madame Alexander produced some of the most spectacular brides in hard plastic.
This particular circa 1949 Margaret mold bride is referred to as "Lucy Bride."
The Margaret mold groom hard plastic doll has extra Madame Alexander clothing which adapts him to his fantasy of "Prince Charming."
am not even going to mention where I purchase his extra clothing

has a rather large set of listings of vintage Madame Alexander dolls
for sale, if you are interested in a purchase, or to find values if
looking for costs, it is necessary to register with eBay.
"Babs" the ice skater was produced in several elegant outfits. The use of fur, rhinestones, and flashing gold skates peaked the imagination of young girls who dreamed of becoming figure skaters.

The skin tones of most Madame Alexander dolls vary from the peaches and cream to "suntan. The rare black "Cynthia" is breathtaking.
red hair is most attributed to the rare Piper Laurie doll, there are
various versions of redhead Madame Alexander dolls to be found.
Flaming red hair and suntan complexion are an incredible combination.
