Madame Alexander Alexander-kins "Wendy At Home" - SOLD!

I listed one other doll on eBay this afternoon: a 1956 BKW Alexander-kins by Madame Alexander. She is called "Wendy At Home" and she is a special hairdo doll with the correct hairdo.

Wendy is in great shape from head to toe. She is wearing ONLY her tagged original dress, but I will be including newer Alexander-kin socks and side-snap suede shoes with smooth bottoms.

Wendy could use a light cleaning, and I don't see any blush on her cheeks. Her eyes flutter nicely and her lip color is all there.

Wendy's best feature is her special hairdo, which is correct for this dress: front pulled up into a bunch of curls at the crown and tied with a black velvet ribbon. The ribbon is tied in a little bow with long streamers. Her hair is in the original set with lots of little curls.

Wendy's body is in good shape, with one flaw that I can see: a dark scuff mark where the staple on the dress's bodice (would have held a flower once) has rubbed against her chest. The mark didn't show up as clearly in the picture as it shows in person, so it is slightly darker than it looks here, though not by much.

Wendy is in otherwise good condition with no cracks, splits, or other damage (besides the scuff). Her walker is strung a touch loose, but she still walks fine. Her arms are well strung and hold a pose.

Like Muffie, I have listed Wendy At Home with a $9.99 starting bid and a $75 Buy It Now, which will disappear when the first bid is placed. Alexander-kins with special hairdos are worth more than others, so with her correct dress I think $75 is a very reasonable price!
