Greetings! For your consideration today is a Bob Mackie LADY LIBERTY BARBIE DOLL! Although never played with, she was owned by an older adult (my aunt), who displayed her in her china cabinet, so this doll has been out of her box. We do have a near mint Lady Liberty Barbie Doll that has never been removed from the box if that is your preference. Please look at the other items we are offering for sale on Ebay.
This doll over all is still in good condition as you can see by the photo's. Even though she was behind glass, there is some light dust. I did a light dusting once over but did not want to rub too hard as to not take off any of the finish. Some of the pictures show a RED tint in the headpiece, that is from the lighting, there is no red. If you look at the pictures of the doll in the box, you can see her in her more natural state. She doesn't look too bad too me.
We did notice that the peg on the torch had been glued. We did not try to push the torch back into the dolls hand. Worse case scenario you can glue the torch to the hand. The way the doll holds the torch, one would not be able to tell that you had glued the torch to her hand so the flaw would be hidden.
We also noticed the doll stand either has a stress point or has been glued. Unfortunately we can't ask my aunt as she has past away. The doll stand is fully functional and since it fits and the dolls dress, the flaw is hidden.
There is also a slight wrinkle at the top left of the certificate of authenticity. Please see the photo.
This Doll was purchased off the showroom floor in the F.A.O. Schwarz Toy Store NYC in 2000 when the doll was first released as an exclusive. Since it was on the shelf in the store, the box does show signs of shelf wear. I took pictures of the box from every angle, so you can see the condition. My aunt kept the box sealed up in plastic bags for the 18 years she had it. Circumstances beyond our control are forcing us to sell her barbie collection.
As you can see, the limited color art print is also included. This too was designed by Bob Mackie. Both the Doll and the print are stunning and will make beautiful additions to any doll collection or the perfect excuse to begin one.
Bob Mackie's masterpiece commemorates a classic American landmark and features his trademarks — a dramatic headpiece, heavy beading and embroidery, and over-the-top fantasy glamour. Lady Liberty™ BarbieÂ® doll is dressed in a fitted silvery metallic gown with long sleeves and a sweeping train at her feet. Silvery embroidery, bugle beads, and silvery star sequins accent her lovely flowing gown. She wears an elaborate headpiece, the beginning of a clear sweep of sparkling rhinestones and stars that circle her length. Shining from head to toe, her feet are graced by silvery pumps. In her right hand, she holds a silvery torch. BarbieÂ® and the Statue of Liberty, two symbols that stand for all things American!
