This listing is for a beautiful vintage. OOAK High Color Black African American Hair Happenin's. Francie #1122 created by the talented Ginger's Doll Cottage.
She is wearing her original tagged blue and white tricot dress. The doll stand is not included. Her hair, facial paint, and makeup are superb! Plenty of high color blush on her cheeks.
Comes with original rooted eyelashes. Her face closely resembles a vintage Black Francie doll's, except her complexion is a darker brown than the second-issue vintage Black Francie doll. Please closely examine each photo. The Ginger's Doll Cottage artist's brown dye took very well to the vintage Francie doll's face and arms.
Her legs are very light. The dye did not take at all to the vintage Francie's neck and torso.
Please scrutinize all of the photos. This beautiful OOAK Black Francie doll has no earring holes, green ear, neck splits, nose gouges, gnawed-on ankles and feet, and no odors. She does have light smudges here and there (from the dye job) to her back and parts of her legs, but in now way are these splotches.
Also, a tiny pinprick is present on the inside of each thigh, which I'm guessing was connected to the artist's attempt to fully dye the legs. I do need to point out a 1/8 cut on the rear of her left knee. No bending mechanism structures are exposed and nothing is poking out. The Mattel factory holes -- one each at the rear of both lower thighs -- are there, as they should be.
Same goes for the factory notches (one each) on the soles of her feet. Her TNT mechanism is perfect. She makes a wonderful display doll! Pose her how you want, except for knee bending. Again, neither knee bends, so neither knee clicks.
Her original dress is in decent used condition and the B&W Francie TM tag is still intact. I have tried to describe everything that might be important to a collector, but please refer to photos for additional information as they're an important part of the product description.
