Very good vintage shape with subtle imperfections factored into pricing. Cleaned, unfaded, and sturdy. 75+ years old.

The kind of dress that presents as being in excellent shape, but has some subtle age and life scars. A small puncture at side of shoulder (about what a pencil's point might make). Two small marks within the print. I have a hunch this dress used to have waist sashes, long gone and/or replaced by the snaps. See photos.

Regardless, she's cute and she's covered with creepy folk dolls! :))))))
