Wow - she is in great shape and so is her tag! Pretty doll and outfit, too!

: This is the table centerpiece doll from the
: Pittsburgh convention that I posted about
: before Christmas. She had the dark, blurry
: auction photos and the seller is a
: notoriously slow shipper. I did email the
: seller and offered to do the in-person pick
: up (which they did offer in the auction
: listing and Delmont, PA, isn't all that far
: away) but they insisted on shipping. Well
: she arrived the Saturday before Christmas in
: a flimsy shoe box, wrapped in a single layer
: of tissue paper and the rest of the box
: stuffed with newspaper. Thankfully she only
: traveled about two hours across the state to
: reach me!
: That said, she is the "Barbie as
: Isadora Duncan" doll that I have seen
: in photos. Or rather a Teen Skipper as
: Isadora Duncan, but in any case, it's the
: right doll. Unlike the Saturday night
: centerpieces that had the metal wrist
: charms, the Friday centerpiece dolls had
: paper tags on their wrist or ankles with
: information about who the doll was supposed
: to represent and who created & donated
: the doll.
: I'm just really surprised her "band of
: stars" lasted this long. They appeared
: fragile before and I wasn't certain they
: would still be in good condition nearly 20
: years later.
: As a side note, her body has been glued into
: the slightly "arched back"
: position, making her difficult to photograph
: without the proper stand - and though I have
: one, I didn't use it in the photo
