This Madame Alexander is the 14" vinyl Martha Washington doll from the "First Lady Doll Collection". Martha Washington because of her former background and training did much to fix the scope of the duties and the responsibilities that are now so much a part of the position of the First Lady of the United States. She presided over her weekly receptions and their state affairs with dignity but without pomp and ceremony. A sweet and amiable person she was the picture of an elegant and dainty matron of the 1790 period. The Martha Washington doll has blonde hair and blue eyes she is dressed in a dress made of flower patterned satin, trimmed in pink ruffled lace with a matching bonnet, white slip, pantaloons, tights and black velvet shoes.
