In the 1950's Madame Alexander used the name Margot for a 14" ballerina doll with the Margaret face mold. But 1961, the 10" version of Margot was introduced. She is an all hard plastic glamour doll, the same doll as Cissette, but has an upswept hairdo with a spit curl over her left eye. 10" Margot is most commonly found as a brunette but blondes were made as well. She has the same dramatic eye paint as Jacqueline. Margot dolls were later used for some of the Portrette series.
