Mattel BFMC Silkstone Barbie Doll Lingerie #4 MPN 55498 LE 2002
Robert Best's "Silkstone" Barbie Fashion Model Collection is considered by many doll collectors to be the pinnacle of Barbie. These dolls were inspired by the aesthetic of the vintage original and have been elevated with elegant fashion using high end textiles and immaculate attention to detail. Their bodies are made of a dense, heavy weight vinyl that is intended to resemble the feel of porcelain. This is "Lingerie #4", released in 2002 as a part of the gold label collection. It's also a part of a 6 doll series of lingerie models. Intricate pale pink lace accents this heavenly bustier ensemble modeled by our fourth Silkstone Lingerie Barbie doll.
I do not know if she has ever been removed from the packaging, but she is packed neatly and intact in her box. All pieces appear to be present. Her clothing is clean with no signs of display and her hair is neat and tidy. The box has some discoloration and some creasing on the front. Artificial materials or elastics may be weak or degraded from age and were not tested for their integrity.
