This is a complete set of 1936 Madame Alexander Dionne Quintuplet dolls. The dolls are all in very good condition, face paint excellent, no crazing, fingers all accounted for. They all have tiny gold name pins and a matching necklace. Marie has lost an arm, but it is in fine condition and will be included . The strings are not real tight but no heads or limbs are dangling. All outfits have faded to a dingy color but are in good condition otherwise. Included is a little booklet describing the babies. It's yellowed and a couple of small corners have torn off. Dolls will be well packed and mailed priority insured.
I am by no means an expert on these types of dolls, so please email me if questions or if there is something further I should look for or describe. Please note: doll stands are not included.
(This set is re-listed; Following are questions received from previous listing):
Q: Hi! I was wondering if the dolls are marked on their backs with alexander and on their heads with dionne alexander? A: The dolls are marked on their upper backs in raised letters "ALEXANDER" and also on the very base of the backs of their heads. (the word "dionne" is not on the heads, only "alexander").
Q: Are the dresses all different colors, do they have their underwear, are the pins all different names (Marie, Annette, Emilie,Yvonne, Cecile) ? A: Thanks for asking ... The dresses have traces of different colors (Marie/blue, Cecile/green or possibly blue, Annette/yellow, Emelie/pink, Yvonne/pinkish), but have faded and yellowed until they all look pretty much the same. All dolls have the same undergarments, a one-piece undershirt/panties/slip combo. They all have names on the pins (Emilie, Annette, Marie, Cecile, and Yvonne). I received another question about whether the jewelry was original and I've looked more closely and have noticed that the necklaces include two Emelies, two Yvonnes, and one Cecile. One Yvonne and one Emelie look slightly newer than the other three. On looking at the pins with a magnifier, the name charms on Marie and Annette also have a newer look. The bars the charms are hanging from all look about the same with the same amount of wear.
Q: what size & are pins & necklaces original? A: The dolls are 7-1/2" tall. I don't have any firsthand knowledge about the pins/necklaces. They were with the dolls when I acquired them from the estate of a long-time doll collector.
