1957 - what year for the Alexander Doll Company! Not only was Cissy's phenomenal popularity peaking, Cissette, Elise were introduced the same year. They would all be introduced in the newest technology of infused plastics, with Cissy making the switch over from her painted finish introduction to the latest and greatest development of infusing the color into the plastic vs the layers of painted finish over raw plastic.
This featured mint in box 1957 Lissy Bridesmaid is quite beautiful. "Beautiful" is perhaps a cliche when describing many of the dolls of this golden era, but in this case, what else can you say? Beatrice Alexander loved costuming and excelled in the colors, details and thoughtful, sometimes unexpected, touches. In this case, the beautiful touch of val lace against the sheer lilac nylon with touches of tiffany-blue/aqua flowers as an element of surprise. Lissy embraces the the tradition of the young ethereal bridesmaid of mid-century America.
