This is a 19" C1940 Hand Made Raggedy Ann and Andy Doll Pair in Red and Yellow Calico Outfits. They measures 21 Inches tall and have cotton stuffed pink sateen bodies that have faded and aged some yellow in the parts that were exposed to the light and air. Ann's right hand was repaired/mended and in doing so made her hand smaller. The left hand is stained on one side, her chest has some staining, the dolls are fresh smelling, a blank I Love You heart is on her chest and R AAN is written in pen to her chest presumably by mother the maker, the face has some all over tan staining from age, and the rest of the body not exposed to the light and covered by clothing is still pink. Ann has red-orange hair in pretty good shape and is all there with a few strands popped from the stitching that held it in place. Ann's long pantaloons have stretched waist elastic and held with a safety pin. The leg elastic is also stretched. Both dolls have embroidered facial features including brows, underlashes, big black button eyes,, elongated red fabric stitched on nose, heart shaped mouth and a big smile. The legs on the dolls appear to be striped stocking fabric recycled into Raggedy legs and the feet are black cotton. The legs have some age staining and some mild soiling as would be expected. The dress is in excellent appropriate condition with an intertwined yellow rick rack trim at the waist, long sleeves with red bias binding sleeve trim that never had elastic around the end. It appears that Ann never was meant to have a pinafore. Andy has R ANDY on his chest with a big patch of light staining to his tummy and some light aging, soiling and staining to his hands. Andy is missing many strands of his hair in back if he had all of them in the first place. His red yellow gray and navy print suit is in excellent appropriate condition with rick rack trim and buttons at the legs. No hat for Andy if he ever had one. Both dolls have aging, fading and staining to the face as you would expect.
