Madame Alexander Heads to the 18th-Century (Part 2: Pompadour Edition)

In Part 1 of this Madame Alexander series, we looked at some of the varied 18th-century inspired dolls that the company has produced over the years. In Part 2, we'll be looking at a specific series that was inspired by none other than the famous Madame Pompadour, longtime mistress of Louis XV.

The original 'Pompadour' series was released from 2001 to 2003.These dolls are some of the most sought after of the 21st century Madame Alexander releases due to the high level of details and quality in the original gowns. It's not unheard of for the original "Winter" to fetch over $1,000 when it shows up at auction! A few years later, the company released "Shadow" versions, or re-releases, due to the immense popularity of the line. The "Shadow" versions go for slightly less secondhand and had higher edition sizes.
