More Hard Plastic Dolls By Madame Alexander...
...And Sources of Information! Hard Plastic Dolls..
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".
I am not even going to mention where I purchase his extra clothing because you should be getting the "hang" of it by now! That's right...eBay!
eBay 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 values, 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 picqued the imagination of young girls who dreamed of becoming figure skaters.
This outfit is actually chartreuse which I believe would date her early 1950's.
The skin tones of most Madame Alexander dolls vary from the peaches and cream to "suntan". The rare black "Cynthia" is breathtaking.
Although red hair is most attributed to the rare Piper Laurie doll, there are various versions of red head Madame Alexander dolls to be found.
Flaming red hair and suntan complexion are an indescribable combination.
There are vintage patterns out there, created to complete the Alexander wardrobe. If you have a buried desire to design clothing, the Madame Alexander hard plastic doll is a model of perfection.
