Here are this week's Items of the Week from the A.T. Stewart Exchange: This week we are featuring a wonderful collection of Madame
Alexander dolls. We have five in our photo in their original boxes. In
fact, each still has the style information attached to the doll's hand
and have never been handled. The owner is a
long-time collector and is moving to a smaller home. She is parting
with these treasures and hoping that another admirer will purchase them.
Beginning top left, we are featuring the Primrose Flower Girl at
$60. This doll is dressed in a delicate light-green dress with
embroidered lilac flowers. Next, we have a Bride ($80) and Groom
($60). Both dolls date to 1999. The Celtic Dancer doll is dressed in a
purple velvet costume and is priced at $50. Our last offering is the
Sweet Silk Victorian doll. She's in a beige silk dress with lace trim
and is offered at $50. All items are available at the time
