From the Ashton-Drake Gene Marshall collection, created by doll artist Mel Odom. She was presented at the 1999 UFDC (United Federation of Doll Collectors) Convention that was held in Washington, D.Gene was stored in her box and was. According to the Certificate of Authenticity, Gene was designed to celebrate the UFCD 50th Anniversary Dinner that was held on August 4, 1999. Tim Kennedy created the unique costume especially for the occasion. 16-inch brunette Gene has blue eyes. She is wearing a cream-colored gown (made of fine silk charmeuse & chiffon) that has a double fabric skirt.
The bodice is covered in black lace and is adorned with 2 cream-colored flowers (another of these flowers is in her hair). Her lace-trimmed petticoat and black strappy heels complete her outfit. She also has a Dance Card attached to her left wrist.
It is noted that the doll is a redesigned Pin-Up Gene, but the outfit is totally different (except for her black heels). The story card is Pin-Up Gene (the company did not make a new one for this doll).
Gene comes with her original box, shipper and doll stand. Signed at the UFDC event by Mel Odom.As an adult collector, my dolls have been stored in a smoke-free, climate-controlled room in my house. Condition as is her box. Gene was stored in soft acid-free archival tissue, which will be included. Is based on 3 lbs. Happy to answer any questions.
