Say hello to Mrs. P. F. E. Albee™ Barbie® doll, designed to honor the very first Avon Representative. Mrs. Persus Foster Eames Albee was a woman of considerable spirit and style. Mrs. Albee would set out, attired in an outfit very similar to the one that this doll is wearing now. Selling products door-to-door in Winchester, New Hampshire, she represented the California Perfume Company, which would later become Avon. She is wearing a lovely lavender taffeta gown with tiered layers near the waist, puffy sleeves and an elegant train with bustles in back. Her lavender taffeta hat has a net bow in back and pink, gold and purple roses in front. Her accessories include lace-up style shoes, a California Perfume Company brochure, golden stud earrings and hand ring. Mrs. Albee was truly the first and finest of many very special Avon Representatives.
New in box. Box is in ok condition. First doll in the series.
