Layaway available. WOW! This is an Effanbee Patsy Joan all composition doll. This is the 17" version that was produced and not the 1st version which is only 16" tall. The 17" Patsy Joan was made to compete with the Shirley Temple dolls. the doll was produced to look a little older body wise so it could compete with the dolls that looked older such as Shirley Temple, Deanna Durbin, etc. This doll has a slimmer body and a more detailed rear end/tush than the 16" version. The back of the doll is marked "Effandbee" instead of "Effanbee". This Patsy Joan came wigged or with molded hair. This particular doll is the wigged version. she has unpainted molded hair under her wig. the mohair wig she is wearing is not original to her but looks great on and is a fabulous color. It is loosely attached so you can change it out easily if you need be but it is very similar to the bang version the doll is commonly found with. Her compo is wonderful. No cracks, no lifting, no repairs and no repaints. Probably the nicest version of this doll I have ever had. Working sleep Eyes are crystal clear with all lash. Original painted brow. Hardly any crazing.Nice color. Strung well so she holds a pose nicely. Wears a cute 2 piece outfit which consists of a dress with matching romper underneath. I added the bonnet to finish off the outfit. Has all fingers and all toes. Oilcloth shoes are a little big. She is VERY sweet , not easy to find in this condition and really a nice looking doll. CUTE!!! Layaway available.
