Original ca 1938 Composition Arranbee "Debuteen" Doll
A wonderful ca 1938 17" composition Arranbee Debu-teen doll. These dolls were only made a few years and have become very collectible.
This particular Debutante teen girl has a very beautiful face with remarkable clear glassine green sleep eyes and original blond human hair wig.
She is marked R&B on the back of her neck. Her composition is excellent with only some light overall crazing. My pictures magnify this and in person you don't notice with the natural eye when she is displayed. She has never had any touch-ups and is in quite good shape. There are a few eye lashes missing and one fingertip is chipped.
She is wearing her wonderful original white and red dotted-swiss dress, and one piece panty-slip combo. Her costume is in excellent condition! I just noted that some trim on one of the sleeves has come loose and I will restitch this. Her socks and oil cloth center snap shoes appear to be original - although the shoes may be from a Shirley Temple doll. The buckles are missing and they look a bit fragile, so be careful when removing them so not to break the snaps.
Delightful composition beauty - ready to display!
