Condition

Good overall vintage shape with minor cosmetic imperfections, sold as-is. Cleaned. 75+ years old.

She brushed up against some era-perfect clay pink paint early in her life -- see photo for the "worst" bit of it, on edge of (and somewhat tucked within) a skirt pleat. Some scattered associated speckles of paint, too. 

A grain of rice-sized mend at the rear side seam area, sturdy and hard to find without knowing it is there.

The print masks her imperfections nicely, so she's great for those of us who favor price and cuteness in our older pieces over "perfection."
