This is an 15 Antique Blonde Alt, Beck, & Gottchalk China Head Doll #139. She is very pretty with bright blue eyes, rosey pink cheeks, and darker, defined peachy lips. You will note that coral line at the lid above her eyes, which indicates a really good china doll. ABG Dolls are considered the Cadillac of dolls.She came on a muslin body with antique china arms. She has been dressed in a vintage Madame Alexander dress that is from the Scarlett collection from'Gone With the Wind.
It is a white Southern-belle dress that is one layer of ruffles upon another, what we like to call, a layer cake dress. And Antebellum South did layer cake better than anyone we know!This one is made out of cotton batiste, with thin, delicate lace marking off each ruffled layer, five in all. The bodice is fitted to the doll, with a princess-shaped divide, marked by lace trim, traveling up to the breastline, where tiny lace and 2 buttons parade to the lace trimmed neckline. The same line repeats in the back. There is a quarter-size hole on one of the layers that is not noticeable while the dress is one the doll.
In fact I never noticed the whole until I took the dress and separated it from its attached under slip, which hides the hole cunningly. A bright green velvet belt, with a silver buckle in the front, ties in a bow in the back. This would look great for St. Patrick's Day or as a Gift for an Irish Lady!There is also a separate crinoline, that if one separates the two layers of netting, the skirt of the dress poufs out becomingly. In order to take the picture, since Hubby was not available, I had to crush the skirt a bit. It stands out much fuller than pictured. The doll also wears lace-trimmed pantalettes and white lace stockings and white "leather" shoes with a white ribbon rose on the toe. The doll is too blonde to be Scarlett, but she wears this ball gown very well, indeed!
