The beautiful curly red haired porcelain doll is in great condition. While there are no discernible identification marks on this gorgeous doll, references indicate it is likely a Franklin Mint collectible from the 1980's. In a couple of the photos, this gorgeous collectible doll still has what appears to be the original plastic wrap around the bottom of the legs. The wrap was removed for the photos and then put back over the lower legs. The wrap on the lower legs is a good indicator that this collectible doll has not been played with to any extent - if at all. The head, lower arms, and lower legs are porcelain. The body from the shoulders down to the upper forearms, and upper legs is stuffed. The red velvet dress has three bold roses across the white chest. Each of the roses are beautifully accented with two strings of faux pearls. There is a Velcro closure on the back of the red velvet dress. The white undergarment reaches down to the top of the tall white stockings. While the stunning curly red hair looks incredibly realistic, it appears to be a synthetic wig. The beautiful flesh tones on the face are accented with a very slight blush on the cheeks. While the glass eyes are fixed, their brownish color tone with darker accents give the impression that the eyes have subtle movement.
Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual.
There are no rips, tears, breaks, or repair places on this gorgeous curly red haired porcelain doll. There are some faint vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the doll - mainly in the form of slight discoloration near the ends of the lace accents. Also, there are some marks on the bottom of the right shoe that are most likely due to the doll being handled.
The decorative possibilities for this beautiful red haired porcelain collectible doll are many. The display case or open collectibles shelf would be enhanced by the addition of this incredibly beautiful doll. Also, the living room or bedroom would welcome this collectible doll for its stunning curly red hair and red velvet dress. In addition, the growing doll and figure collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this curly red haired doll.
The collector will appreciate this beautiful curly red haired porcelain doll for its great condition, red velvet dress, white lace-like accents, and gorgeous overall appearance.
The collectible porcelain doll weighs 20.5 oz.
The beautiful curly red haired porcelain doll measures 16" tall to the top of the head x approximately 4.5" wide across the shoulders or 7.25" wide across from outside of hand to outside of hand x approximately 3.5" deep at the head from the tip of the nose to the back of the head.

***Shipping will include insurance
***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:
If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.
***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
