This pair of dolls were made by the Effanbee Durable Doll Co. They are from the original owner's family. They are in like-new condition - just beautiful. They are all composition dolls with original clothes. George: This doll is in like-new condition. He is dressed in a blue hat trimmed in gold, he has on an orange vest, tan pants, blue over-coat trimmed in gold. All clothes are felt. He is wearing white knee socks and black leather-like shoes. He is wearing a mesh lace white ascot at his neck and ruffled mesh lace at his wrists. He has long white hair that is rolled around his face. There is molded hair underneath the wig. He seems to have all buttons and trims on his outfit. No stains or other damage. He has a hand painted face - in excellent condition. His joints - neck, arms and legs - are intact but seem a little loose. Martha: This doll is in like-new condition also. She is dressed in a pink felt top trimmed in ecru lace with a blue belt and a pink skirt with blue sheer over-skirt. She is wearing ecru bloomers trimmed in lace at the hem. She also is wearing ecru hose with leather-like shoes. She is wearing on her wrist a heart shaped gold charm labeled "EffanBee Durable Dolls" on both sides. She has white-blond hair in an "up-do" style. She has molded hair underneath the wig. Her hand painted face is beautiful. Her joints (neck, arms and legs) are intact but seem a little loose.
There are a few very faint lines on the cheeks of both dolls. Martha also has some faint lines on her neck. I really had to look hard for these and they only showed up under bright light. These dolls both come with their Effanbee boxes. The boxes are in excellent condition.
These dolls are approximately 9" (including hat and hair).
