Pristine Mint Arranbee 20" Nanette Composition Doll in Formal. 1940's.
. We are pleased to offer this beautiful Arranbee Nanette 20" composition doll dating back to the early 1940's. The doll is in beautiful condition and has sleep eyes that open and close easily and are clear with white irises and full rooted lashes. Her facial paint is all original with rosy cheeks, bee strung red lips, delicately painted lower lashes, smoky eye shadow and feathered brows. She has reddish blond hair that looks to be in the original set. Her body is very good, with all fingers and toes intact. The only crazing on this doll is a small crack on her hip (see pics) and a tiny crack above her right eye. Paint is excellent and all original. She comes wearing what we believe is her original gown which is a pink satin with a ruffle at the hem line with a pale blue velvet ribbon accent bow in the center.. The waist is fitted while the shirt is full and flowing. The bodice has a scoop neckline that is draped with an ecru colored lace with embroidered flowers and scalloped edging. At the upper right hand corner of the neckline is a small bouquet of silk flowers. The back of the dress has three square snap closure. Underneath the doll wears a cream colored lace trimmed silk slip...this has some staining as well as her matching panties. She completes her look with gold colored lace up booties and socks. The doll has no markings on her body. She is a beautiful example of a Arranbee Nanette Doll and comes to you from a SMOKE FREE home....
