This is a 1950s advertising brochure for a new doll line created by Nancy Ann--the maker of the popular Story Book dolls. Her new line of dolls look very similar to Madame Alexander dolls, and I wonder if this was an attempt to get some of that market. Remembering how things cost in the 1950s, I'm shocked at these doll prices. 24.95. 19.95. My mother could feed a family of four--frugally, mind you--on $33.00 a week, so that shows you how pricey these dolls were for the time. But so were Madame Alexanders and Kathe Kruse dolls.
They are beautiful dolls, and their clothing is breathtaking. The photography is rich in color and detail. One side has the pictures of all her dolls. The other side shows a life sized photo of one of her dolls. There is one small rip right along the crease--one rip only. The creases are well formed. This has been folded for a very long time. I don't know if this was a brochure handed out to customers or to the store. I suspect the store would have received this to display over the doll counter.
The brochure is very large: 33" long by 35" tall, and just chock filled with illustrations of Nancy Ann's new dolls. A rare and unusual item--pertinent to Nancy Ann but not the typical Nancy Ann collectible. Thank you for stopping by.
