This listing is for a vintage Pleasant Company/American Girl Kirsten Larson doll with a white muslin body. The first three Pleasant Company dolls produced (Kirsten, Samantha, and Molly) were made with white bodies from 1986 until the introduction of Felicity Merriman in 1991.I believe this doll was manufactured closer to the and of the "white body era" because her neck strings are rounded instead of flat, and her eyes are not the lighter blue ones that the very earliest Kirstens had. Her eyes are the same as those in pre-Mattel Kirsten dolls made throughout most of the 1990s. Another explanation for the newer eyes and strings could be that she was sent to the doll hospital and had them replaced. She is missing the tip of the big toe on her right foot, and I replaced her right arm due to the original one having been chewed by a dog. The arm is not quite as old as the rest of her, but it feels like a pre-Mattel arm. This arm has darkening around the shoulder and armpit. Her other limbs have some marks and darkening, and there is a small brown mark on her left cheek. Some of the blush on her cheeks has been rubbed off.
Her cloth body has a small stain near the left arm socket. She has been professionally restrung, and her body has been restuffed. Her hair has a little frizziness but is nice, overall. Please note: Colors in photos may differ slightly from those of the actual item, and terms for the names of colors can be subjective, depending on who is using them. What is teal to one person may be turquoise to another.
