It was released in 1999 as the second doll in the Collector's Request Collection of Reproduction Barbie Dolls.
It was a Limited Edition doll with an original price tag of $50.
In addition to the doll, it includes a faithful reproduction of the entire ensemble, which included:
Navy Cardigan Suit Jacket and Sheath Skirt
3 Flower Red Silk Hat
The jacket has a "Barbie 1999 Reproduction" black & white cloth tag.
is a very nice doll and ensemble. It was more of a collectors edition
than some of the other more mass reproduced, but of course that makes it
harder to find and more expensive.
Like the original, this doll comes with two different blouses, a blue and white checked body blouse and a white satin shell. The checked blouse is packaged separately and is at the bottom of the box along with a pink reproduction Barbie Booklet.
In 1999 there was a Commuter Set Ornament.
