Simply AMAZING Patsy doll by Effanbee early issue -- circa 1928 - 1929 -- all composition with her original Effanbee factory print dimity dress, matching onsie, socks, and oilcloth shoes
BONUS --OUTSTANDING Rare Mollye's Extra Outfit Included.
Patsy's 5-part body is all composition; strung securely to pose nicely. Marked 'EFFanBEE//PATSY//PAT. PEND.//DOLL on her back. She stands about 13.5" tall. Composition is in excellent condition with NO CRAZING on her body and little to NO crazing on her head -- no cracks, no lifting, and very little wear to the paint at the joints. Fingers and toes have NO paint wear. Absolutely wonderful!
Includes ORIGINAL and RARE Pat. Pending Paper Hang Tag!
Patsy's face is vibrant, retaining all painted facial features, with a healthy glow of blush remaining on her cheeks. Beautiful brown painted side-glancing eyes; painted lower lashes. GORGEOUS brown molded painted hair with classic 'headband' -- just lovely. Blush still adorns her knees, back of elbows and tops of her hands. NO TOUCH UPS or RESTORATIONS to Patsy -- ALL ORIGINAL doll.
Patsy wears her cotton print 'onesie', under her Early and DARLING print dimity classic Effanbee dress. I have added a same vintage MOLLYE'S rare and outstanding blue fleece coat, bonnet and leggings -- trimmed in navy blue velvet; AND, Mollye's pink cotton organdy dress with exquisite French Knot embroidered flowers. These adorable Mollye's outfits were worn by Shirley Temple and Effanbee dolls back in the 1930s and are highly sought after for outfitting a favored doll. Bluebird pin is not included. Matching blue-green oilcloth shoes complete the ensemble -- simply OUTSTANDING.
Wardrobe is truly a classic design, well representing the patterns that were so popular when these compo dolls were a boom in the American doll market. Coat set is in mint condition but for some light foxing to the knit cuffs on her leggings. Dress is in like NEW condition -- crisp and clean, after all these years.
Truly a beautiful early PATSY doll in EXCEPTIONAL condition to charm any collector!
