American Character is a doll company with a long history. Sally is one of their products from 1930 and was probably made to compete with Effanbee Patsy as they have very similar faces. Sally is about the size of Effanbee's Patsy Ann at 18-19 inches. They can wear each other's clothing and also the Shirley Temple type clothes. This particular doll is in very nice condition with just the tiniest splits near her one eyelid. Her paint looks all original and in very good condition. Her gray tin eyes open and close easily and have all mohair lashes present. Her body is cloth with composition arms and legs. Someone was an excellent seamstress and used an original pattern to make her a reproduction of her dress, slip, panties and coat and hat. They are really very nicely made. In two of the last pictures, I show her in an old plaid Shirley type dress from the period and it is available separately. These dolls were typically unmarked (their clothing was tagged instead) but she is featured in Judith Izen's American Character book.
