Pictured for sale is this stunning 1985 Effanbee Madison Park Doll, one of their Little Old New York Collection Dolls. In 1985 the Effanbee Doll Company of New York issued the Little Old New York Collection which featured turn of the century fashionable smartly dressed ladies who spent their leisure time strolling or riding in open carriages on New York City Avenues and in Parks in the 1900’s. This is Number 7303, the third in a series of four.
In 1910, Fleishaker & Baum created the Effanbee Doll Company when they produced a realistically proportioned child doll named Patsy. It was such a big hit they made a companion doll and a large wardrobe for little girls to dress Patsy and her friends. Little girls fell in love with it and a fan club of over 275,000 little girls was formed. Effanbee also created the first hard rubber drink and wet doll named Baby DyDee. Since then they have made some of the most beautiful baby and celebrity dolls that collectors continue to add to their personal collections.
This wonderful doll is dressed in a beautiful long sleeved light pink dress with lace accents and lace around the neck, arms, and bottom. She is also wearing lace-edged off-white bloomers, pink underskirt, stiff white underskirt, a brooch on the bodice, a wide pink ribbon around the waist that ties in a large bow in the back, plastic bead necklace, and a woven off-white hat with beautiful lace on the front half tied on with netting with pink and white flowers and a pink bow on top. Her shoes are black with off-white detached cloth tops and button snaps. She has dark brown hair. Her arms move at the shoulders and her head moves.
The beautiful off-white parasol is 10 ¾” long and when opened it is 14” in diameter. It is made in Taiwan of nylon on the inside and cotton eyelet fabric with three rows of lace accents on the outside. There is a round wood knob on the bottom of the handle and the top of the parasol.
