This is a beautiful Effanbee "Patsy Joan" Composition Doll. I believe she is from the Historical Series. She has her original dress but, the story I was told by the original owner was that her mother started to take her dress apart to sew her a new one. She removed the sleeves but, never made a new dress. She has her original socks & shoes and the tag is still attached to her wrist.
Her body shows very minimal age wear but, as I am not a doll expert please look closely at all the detailed pictures and you be the judge. She measures 16" long and the back of her neck is signed "Effanbee". Her back is signed "Patsy Joan".
Her right eye looks to be missing some eyelashes and her left eye is full. She has nice rosey cheeks and her lips are nice and bright. She comes in the original bottom half of the box, there is no top piece or writing off any kind, it's just all white.
