I believe this adorable doll is Muffie’s big sister Debbie from the Nancy Ann Storybook Doll Company. She is made of hard plastic with painted facial features and blushed knees. She has sleep eyes and plastic lashes. Her auburn hair is in its original, unbrushed condition with original barrettes, hair pins and little flowers. She is dressed in a one piece outfit and matching bonnet that looks like she might live at Sunnybrook Farm. The outfit is made of red & white gingham with a white bodice and puffy sleeves. The collar, sleeves and pocket are all trimmed with lace. She has on a pair of white bloomer panties that are trimmed with the same lace as is on the outfit. She’s wearing white knit sock and black Mary Jane shoes with a snap strap. All of the clothes are vintage and appear to be original to the doll. She has jointed arms and a walker mechanism so her head turns back and forth when her legs are moved in a walking fashion. I believe she is from the early 1950’s.
She measures about 10 ¼” tall excluding her hat. She is in very good condition with no damage and the walking action works well. The red of the gingham is faded and the white is slightly yellowed. The stretch is gone from the little socks and from the panties. She has a tendency to lean forward so she doesn't stand well on her own without a little wedge (I've used a piece of cardboard) under her heels.
