Please take the time to read below so you know what you are potentially buying:
This classic vintage doll is made by BELLA and is made in France,
and is labelled with the number 13503 on the back of the neck.
She has no copyright by from the age and style of the doll, hair and clothes in comparison to
the many other Tressy, Cathie, Betsie dolls on eBay and fashion doll site, she looks to be from 1960 to 1969.
There is not much information about the Bella Doll company on the web,
but what is there clearly shows that in the 1960's they got the European copyright to distribute
American Character Dolls including Tressy, Cathie and Betsie.
She is a hybrid doll made of a soft stuff plush doll like fabric main torso with firm plastic moulded parts for the head with plugged hair,
and and both arms and legs sewn into the Torso.
She measures 17 inches in height, and has her hair combed long and straight, and braided into 2 pig tails.
She has wonderful TRESSY LIKE left gaze painted blue eyes that are stunning, with nice original painted BLACK eyelashes.
Her face has painted eyebrows and nice painted pink lips.
Overall, the beautiful Doll is gently used from play-wear
and overall 40+ years of age but remains still in excellent condition.
Her hands, feet, face and eyes are in wonderful shape and there are no real significant flaws on the doll itself.
She is super clean, has NO green ear, has wonderful facial features, great eyebrows, and painted eyelashes like new.
She also has a fabulous body that is very clean.
Her hair has been combed out and is in great clean shape.
The 2 pieces of clothing of the doll: Red PLAID Wool 2 Piece outfit with bell Bottom pants and white snap buttons,
are in very good shape with nice detail and top quality knitting,
BUT they are both aged a bit with a few minor loose wool thread fraying in a few places.
Both the decorative and metal snap button and all in place and in great shape.
NOTE: The Dress is definitely Original but I am not sure if it is Bella or AMerican Character make.
NOTE 2: SHE IS MISSING HER SHOES.
Bella France Dolls like this in North America are even rarer SO DO NOT LET THIS ONE PASS BY!!!!!
