      I meant to ask if legs had joint . I know her ankles do .

      Please excuse first post I made as I did not make it Clear that her name is Elise By Madame Alexander. Is her head hard plastic or vinyl I can't tell from photo .?? She dates from 1960's , Her Ballerina dress should have a tag in it with her name or perhaps it was cut off . Her body changed though the years that is why I asked about joints :-)
      Made by Madame Alexander - Madame Alexander was also the business name of Beatrice Alexander (1895-1990), who was born Bertha Alexander later changed her name to Beatrice, married Philip Behrman and then started her doll business in 1920,s .
      Alexander's Elise is the sometimes overlooked "middle sister" of their family of glamour dolls. Her sweet charm makes her a favorite of many collectors, however, and while she is most often found as a bride or ballerina, her day dresses and evening gowns are worth the search. Many of her outfits match Cissy and Cissette outfits. In 1958, Elise was sold as "Sweet 16" in the FAO Schwarz catalog.
      The first version of her, manufactured from 1957 to 1963, is 16.5" tall and hard plastic with vinyl arms. She is jointed at the neck, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees and ankles. She has sleep eyes with brush lashes and a glued-on wig. In 1962, Elise grew to 17" tall with a vinyl head, although the hard plastic version continued to be produced. In 1962 and '63. Elise's jointed ankles enable her to wear flats, high heels or ballet slippers

      Oh one more thing . Her eyebrows have been touched up and that decreases her value :-(

      Manikin, Thanks so much for the information. I did find the Tag with name. I'm trying to learn a little more. When I go to estate sales I always find tons of dolls the problem is the pricing and lack of information. Most of the time the seller put a price because they are old.
      ~ Although this doll has a few issues, I only pay I think $25. First doll ever bought , hoping to by a few more..
      Thanks so much..
