Elise Book

Vintage Elise Reference with Cissy and Cissette Sister Sets

Organization of Book

The first 86 pages are organized by categories based on the style of the outfit. Each outfit is identified as having been "Sold on a Dressed Doll" or as a "Boxed Extra". 115 vintage Elise dolls in original clothing are pictured.  Each has a full length photo, detail shots, and an informative written description. Outfits are identified as being Rare or Hard to Find (HTF).

There is a 12 page pictorial thumbnail index of the dolls and outfits sorted chronologically from 1955-1962.  The thumbnails provide a quick means of identifying whether or not an outfit is an original Madame Alexander Cissy clothing item.

Additionally, the thumbnails serve as a visual index for quickly locating the page on which the doll is described in detail. Dolls are coded from 1-5 stars to give the reader an idea of the rarity of the doll or outfit.

SPECIAL FEATURE:

50 pages of Cissy and Cissette in Shadow Sets and Sister Sets
