She can hold a pose, but her softer cloth body makes it harder for her to get too elaborate with her stance. This Sam has confirmed "dreamer" eyes, which were only produced for a short time before being replaced. I took this doll to a local doll expert who carefully checked her and confirmed that her eyes are legitimate dreamers.
I also removed her eye and placed it next to a normal eye, so you can see that her iris is smaller (pictured). She comes with her vintage Tea Dress (1990, see tag), original fishnet socks, and she'll be wearing bloomers. I'm not sure if the bloomers were hers; they aren't marked.
The ribbon in her hair is a thinner replacement ribbon, but it matches perfectly! The shoes on her feet are also not hers, but they're similar to her meet shoes, just white. She has round neck strings with a looser weave, an artist mark behind her right ear (pictured), softer vinyl, a chubbier body, and broad shoulders.Her hair is in great shape! I can't honestly say if it's been cut before I got her, but her wig is full and shiny. You can see some glue in the wig in front of her right ear. She has all original face paint. Her eyes were cleaned and they open and close normally.
The paint on the top of her right eyelid isn't perfect, but any imperfections aren't really glaring. You should assume she has shine marks from play, but I don't see any dark/dye marks. Overall she's a really great doll for a collector. I will be including the nightgown she arrived to me in (1989 tag), and her Plaid Cape (no gaiters). The cape has no tags and is in TLC condition (see pictures, there are several places where the decorative trim came apart and was sewed back in place).
Everything else is in great, clean condition. I can't speak for her previous home, but I can say she's been completely cleaned since arriving here. I tried to picture everything I could.
