Museum Quality HAND-PAINTED 1959 #1 Brunette Barbie, MIB w/all accessories, including pristine stand, etc. She really is the ultimate in rare #1 Barbies. For the advanced collector, or perhaps a true museum. She has a wonderful provenance. His sector of the country included Illinois and Chicago, along with some of it’s suburbs. Incredibly retro cool and so mid-century. &###129303; This is a rush listing. But if you’re interested, check back for more pictures and a further description, today or sometime this week. It usually yellowed people’s skin tones, and did it with dolls too. But her face paint is all original and ga ga ga gorgeous! In fact, no restoration of any sort, anywhere on her. And no neck-splits or cut hair or missing plugs. I have a newer and better camera now, so hoping for better photos, especially her’skin’ color. This girl has been stored for the 20+ years that I’ve owned her. Kept in a light and air-free container, in a climate-controlled environment. Pet and smoke-free too. Thank you for your interest. I most definitely will be listing some lower-end and bargain basement items in the future too. The item “HAND-PAINTED SALESMAN’S BRUNETTE #1 BARBIE, MIB Vintage 1959.
