I have a doll purchased...
I have a doll purchased old 25 years ago. Seller said she was Madame Alexander but I can't find a marking of any kind. She is 17", hard plastic, strung, straight arms and legs in original bridal gown with train, lovely veil,original bouquet, taffeta slip, panties, stockings and shoes that snap in the front, reddish blond hair, hazel sleep eyes.
How do I determine if she is a Cissy, Wendy, Honey etc? In order to sell her I need to know what doll she is
