The collectible Heritage House musical porcelain "Laura" doll is in great condition. The original Heritage House box is in good condition. The accompanying information in the photos comes with the doll - including a certificate of authenticity with a blank provenance on the back. This beautiful porcelain collectible doll is number 1369 out of 9800 produced worldwide. The information that accompanies this beautiful doll shows that it has "first-quality" pure glazed porcelain head, hands, legs, and feet. The shoes are faux leather. The delicate features on the doll were hand-painted. The light-pink costume was hand-sewn and trimmed with hand-finished lace. While the stand could not be seen because the original wrap is still intact, the accompanying information shows it to be a burnished wood stand (base). Also, there is a hand-written date of 02-28-92 on the certificate of authenticity. In addition to her beautiful costume, blonde hair, blue eyes, and hand-painted accents, this collectible "Laura" doll has an embedded 18-note musical movement that plays "Somewhere My Love". While the end of the box shows an item number of HPAL1189672 Made in Taiwan, the accompanying information notes that this doll was not sold in stores.
Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, the Chap Stick in the photos is not included in this listing as it was used for scale purposes only.
There are no breaks, rips, or repairs on this beautiful doll. There are some faint vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the doll - mainly in the form of slight discoloration on the lace due to age. Also, there are some darker spots on the faux-leather shoes that are most likely due to aging and appear to be darkened glue. In addition, the cardboard backing that "Laura" is connected to has some faint spots of discoloration. While the box is in good condition, there are signs of age, wear, and discoloration - mainly in the form of distress and wear due to handling and/or transporting.

***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.

***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.
