Vintage 1930s Effanbee 11" Mold 1 Dy-Dee Ette Baby Doll -- Gorgeous and vibrant face
NO RESTORATIONS ... comes in her original EARLY 'Shoebox' style display box with original tissue.
Baby wears her soft white cotton lawn day gown, with matching bonnet and slip. The ribbons have been replaced with soft pink silk ties that closely match the originals. Underneath she wears her rayon knit vest (undershirt), and pure white birdseye weave diaper held on with two tiny golden safety pins. She wears a pair of pink stripe silk socks to keep her feet warm.
Bedtime comfort and style include a Signature pair of Dy-Dee drop-seat pajamas with "Early to Bed, Early to Rise" graphics. Then cuddle her up with her BLUE ESMOND 'blankie' for a night of extra sweet sleep.
Includes her original rubber teething ring, and "What Every Young Doll Mother Should Know" brochure by Aunt Patsy -- Dated 1934. Inside are messages to the 'New Mommy', and another to her parents. There are care and feeding instructions to keep Dy-Dee comfortable and healthy. Various extra outfits and accessories are depicted encouraging 'Mommy' to add them to her baby's layette.
All of baby's clothes are in very lightly played with condition with only a pinhole in the underslip to mention... All are clean and pressed and ready to display.
Baby herself has a beautiful head -- dark molded curls with just a modicum of soft rubs to lend to her character and age. She has rosy cheeks, vivid painted features, and perfect open and close tin-litho BLUE sleepy eyes ; the brush lashes are full and even but for a few that are shortened in the middle of the left eye. Her 'skin' is smooth and soft and supple -- no hardness, cracking or crazing. All joints move freely but firmly as they should. All fingers and toes are intact -- beautiful body -- I hesitate to call the body Mint but it is in wonderful condition and my close up photos will help you see just how nice it is.
The little 11" Dy-Dee Ette deserves a place in every Dy-Dee Collector's nursery... She loves to sit on my big Dy-Dee Lou's lap and share a storybook.
Dy-Dee Ette comes in her original box that is in good condition structurally; the top has a few spots of thin layered residue like rubber perhaps that hardened.
This is a RARE and COMPLETE Dy-Dee Ette set from 1934 and the box is rarely seen.
