MINT in BOX --1930's Effanbee LAMKINS Lambkins 16" Composition Doll


THE Royal PRINCESS HAS ARRIVED... another lovely Lambkins from my personal collection~




It's a pleasure to list this MARVELOUS WONDER DOLL by Effanbee. This is the 16" LAMBKIN / LAMKIN from 1930 -- darling baby doll is in near MINT condition -- the most MINT Lambkin I have EVER SEEN. She comes to you in her organdy gown, bonnet, underwear, and knit booties.


VERY VERY RARE to find Lambkin with her ORIGINAL EFFANBEE LAMBKN LAYETTE intact. EVERYTHING you see is original to this baby.


LAMBKINS is appropriately marked on the back of her neck, as spelled with a 'b', where her presentation box interestingly spelled her name without the 'b' as LAMKIN and without the 's' as well. She has 5-part composition limbs and head with a softly stuffed body that drapes and shapes to an infant's needs to fully express herself! She is SOFT, SOFT and SOFT... a very CUDDLY body. She has a non-working crier inside.


FACT ALERT: DID YOU KNOW... many collector's are unaware of her unusual feature -- a unique mechanism allows the doll mother to place Lambkin on her right side with HER EYES OPEN !! Lambkins can be placed in various natural positions.


Baby Lambkin comes wearing her white cotton gown, slip, flannel undershirt/diaper combination, wool weave pink layette blanket, and knit booties.... which she will probably kick off her fat little feet when she gets excited seeing you for the first time when she comes home


...after all, it IS Baby's First Christmas!


Her composition is in MINT MINT MINT condition -- with NO CRAZING at all; she still has vivid PINK BLUSH to her paint -- GREAT COLORING -- arms and head are all original with NO TOUCH UPS/RESTORATIONS of any kind. Only one small surface rub to her pretty molded head, and a couple of paint rubs on her toes is all there could be to note. Her cloth body is immaculately clean as would be expected -- baby has NO odors from storage.


Her BLUE tin litho eyes are the CLEAREST and WHITEST I have ever seen on a Lambkins...usually the whites begin to show a green cast -- these are BEAUTIFUL! Her PAINTED lashes are intact, as well as her little eyebrows ... most often these painted features are faded and forgotten.


Her gorgeous plump hands, feet and legs are simply adorable. NOTE her celluloid finger nails (and toenails, too!) -- a feature Effanbee used on very special dolls in its line), AND her darling "gold' ring on her left hand. Absolutely amazing doll to find completely intact after more than 70 years!


Baby LAMBKINS sits beautifully and poses well in her INCLUDED original EFFANBEE OVAL Presentation 'HATBOX' -- included is a pink cotton ruffled pad and head pillow to replace the oval pillow/pad that would have originally come with the box and is now 'in absentia'. She lays pleasantly in her box fast asleep upon her arrival -- charming you with her adorable face and chubby baby hands.


Her arm connectors work smoothly so you can raise and lower her arms in different positions; her head turns completely as well -- all adding nicely to her ability to pose and highlight her adorable features -- this baby has a LOT of CHARM and PERSONALITY and as the Effanbee slogan promises -- she is a doll to STEAL YOUR HEART.
