Barbie Vintage American Girl C.1958 Made In Japan Original Suit Lovely For Sale
Barbie vintage American Girl c.1958 Made in Japan original suit LOVELYShe is really a great find , been stored away in a box for thirty years. I am prone to keep her so offer now I wont list her again :)
American Girl wore a one piece swimsuit, with a multi-colored striped
top piece and an all aqua bottom.
Her swimsuit is in mint shape,
also wore aqua open toe high heels. her shoes however are gone.
blue eyes and her eyes were lined with the same color blue eyeliner.
Her make up is gorgeous. Barbies made in 1965 wore coral shade
lipstick, although this often fades till it's a light orange or buttery
yellow color. This girls lipstick has not faded.
She also wore coral
shade fingernail and toenail polish. Alas her toe polish is gone,
made in 1966 either followed the same coral color pattern, or some came
with 'high color' paint, which was brighter, eyeliner and blush
application was heavier, and the lipstick color and fingernail and
toenail paint was a darker red or raspberry color.I dont if this Barbie
is considered high colored or not as I have only seen this one to
compare . maybe someone else knows
Accessories sold with her included a wire stand, wrist tag and a booklet.She has none of these they have been lost , sorry.
of the best ways to know if your Barbie is a real vintage doll is by
paying close attention to the markings on the doll itself. Markings on
the 1965 Barbie, are indented and say
Markings on the 1966 Barbie
changed slightly to include "Made in Japan".
This one is a 1966 Barbie.
your wanting to buy a vintage American Girl Barbie pay particular
notice to the legs. They should move in three stages and damage to this
could devalue the Barbie, as would any other signs of wear and tear or
use such as stains, pen marks, chew marks, etc. This Girls legs work great and look lovely :)
Girl Barbie was the last of her kind. The 1967 Barbie, known as the
first Mod Era Barbie, looked very different from the elegantly coiffured
American Girl and her fashion designer wardrobe, making her a wonderful
addition to any collection. See Pictures for condition , She is in
very good condition, her legs are in good working are not stained
although they do need cleaning and alas her toe polish is gone She still has her finger polish and most of her make up , Her
make up is still quite bright with little fading but mascara appears
to have rubbed off at the very edge of her eyelashes just a little bit (
again see pictures ) Questions Welcome Thanks for looking and please check out my other listings :) On Jul-02-13 at 18:52:55 PDT, seller added the following information:
