thanks again, guys! and thanks and you're welcome lani! and

Wow.  Is she a soft-bodied doll?

no. these dolls are generally wire armature, stuffed/poseable arms, and molded styrofoam legs/torso/head covered in something very like pantyhose on the body and silk or nylon on the head. that's why they're kinda hard to find now, cause if they haven't been in a temp-controlled environment and handled rather carefully over the years, the styro tends to crumble and the doll turns into a bag of lumps.... i know i saw some new ones (tho not quite as cute in the styling of the face) at a fair several years ago; so i guess someone is still making them somewhere, but i'd have no idea of how to get hold of them....
