Iconic large battery operated ballerina doll from 1968!  This piece is the predecessor to Dancerella in the 70’s and later My Pretty Ballerina in the late 1980’s.  Authenticated and encased by industry leaders AFA, THIS IS THE ONLY UNOPENED DANCERINA KNOWN TO EXIST.  Over 50 years old and incredibly well preserved, this one presents spectacularly.  We must note that there is approximately 1 inch of fracturing near the bottom rear corner of the acrylic casing but this does not affect the piece itself in any way.  An absolute gem of a specimen reserved for an elite collection.  Approximately 12 x 7.5 x 28 inches.  Encapsulated by AFA (80), #13464194
