vintage 1950's Chiltern large fashion doll with blue dress and seamed stockings

I have for sale a vintage fashion doll which I believe is from the 1950's and measures approx. 20" in height. She is marked at the back of her head "CHILTERN" IN ENGLAND (it appears as though the word 'MADE' has been missed off. There are approx. 10 - 12 missing hair plugs from the back of her head (just above the word CHILTERN). Her hair feels quite dry, which I suppose should be expected of a doll her age. She has once worn a pair of earrings however they are now missing, and only the tiny hoops are still attached to below her earlobes. There is some paint chips / rubs to her lipstick and nail varnish on her fingers. Unfortunately, 1 of her eyes is very badly damaged (please refer to photo), which is such a shame as in my opinion she is such a gorgeous, special doll. I'm not sure if her eye could be replaced, as it cannot be repaired due to the damage to the glass? She is wearing a pair of seamed stockings which are in excellent condition, and one of the straps on her shoe is snapped. The stitching is coming away from a seam in her panties. Her pretty dress has 2 poppers at the back which fasten. There are some stitches / material coming away (just a little) along the darts at the back of the bodice, and there is also a tiny hole in the lining of her dress. Please note that I am not a doll expert and have tried to describe

Many thanks for viewing.
