PLEASE WAIT FOR INVOICE WITH COMBINED SHIPPING ON MULTIPLE ITEMS!!
MOVING SALE!!! We have finally moved. I am now back to unpacking my Mother's doll collection. I will probably be selling dolls for next year or more. I have gotten about half-way through, and honestly, these have been packed and in storage for nearly 20 years. She collected what she grew up with (she passed away a few years ago at the age of 90). Mostly compos, but also a few bisque. She loved Shirley Temple, Effanbee, and Alexander, and babies. Some are excellent, while others are "projects." She bought what she could afford, sometimes keeping dolls on layaway for a year! That being said, here I go...
Excellent to very good (not mint, read on). From 1940. Effanbee "flirty eyed" Tommy Tucker composition & cloth doll. Part of the Baby Bright Eyes family of dolls. Head, arms, legs are compo. Torso is cloth, nice and firm. Marked on back of the head, "Effanbee USA." Has very very minor hairline crazing on face and legs. All the top layer of paint has flaked off both arms (sort of weird that it is just the arms). Some wear to the painted facial features. Brows are very faint, lower painted lashes are excellent, a little paint wear on the lips. Eyes open and close with ease. These a "flirty" eyes that glance from side to side. The irises are slightly crazed, but the pupils have been painted in. Has all his original human hair lashes. Has a human hair wig, nice and full, but needs to be styled. Tommy is ALL ORIGINAL. Pink and ivory romper with embroidery accent is perfect. Original baby shoes and socks (shoes are slightly worn). He is pictured on page 120 of "Effanbee, the Dolls with the Golden Hearts," by M. Kelly Ellenburg. Perfect addition to any Effanbee collection.
