Dewees Cochran American Children Effanbee Doll Composition Large
Head to toe: Wig: this doll is wearing a perfectly fitting and totally appropriate original Anne Shirley Effanbee human hair wig, which would have been the same type used on the American Children dolls from the same factory, and it fits perfectly. It is rather thin in the back though, and someone set it with hairspray, so it is "set" in it's "set" if that makes sense. It still looks spectacular on her! I didn't glue it down as I wanted to show the repairs to her head. This girl has some heavy repairs on the back and sides of her head; fortunately her hair covers almost all of it and it is not seen when she's displayed!
Her fingers, amazingly, are all intact. Her dress may or may not be original to her, but it fits her perfectly - it may have been handmade and not factory. It is still period to her style and completely appropriate, although it has some stains. Her shoes are original but one sole is MISSING completely; I think a new cardboard sole could be added. I added new socks to her.
Her body is in good shape and she has been restrung. While this girl has many head repairs, her face and body are gorgeous. This is a wonderfully period American Children doll to add to your collection!
