This is a C1936 Arranbee Nancy Composition Doll measuring 13 Inches tall. She is an unmarked Nancy Composition Doll but is marked with the number 13 to her back. She can be found on pg. 43 of Arranbee Dolls by Suzanne L. DeMillar and Dennis J. Brevik. This doll is thought to be the recognition of Elizabeth when she became heir to England's throne in 1936. She has the silver crown pin with jewels. This doll is all original and includes her pink taffeta gown, bouquet of flowers, pink net capelet, matching taffeta hat and jeweled pin. her composition is in beautiful, excellent condition and she is a super clean doll. The only faults I could find is that the pink taffeta has faded lightly to the skirt, top of the bonnet, and there are two pinholes to the front hem which looks like they may have been made from a store price tag. I also noticed two one-half inch fabric splits to the back hem area. Her stringing is tight, has beautiful face paint and sleep eyes with fur lashes. Her eyes are crackled and she has some paint craze lines emanating from the top and bottom of her eyelids. There is also a tight craze line to her chin. The blonde wig is in the original set, having been protected by her bonnet. She wears her full slip, white-knit socks, and green center-snap shoes. She is tagged "This Garment Made of 100% Acetate Rayon". She is an absolutely beautiful doll and was well taken care of.
