Rare 1930 Effanbee LAMKINS Lambkins 16" Composition Doll


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


Near MINT in her white Wicker Presentation Basket


It's a pleasure to list another Lambkin... the MARVELOUS WONDER DOLL by Effanbee. This is the 16" LAMBKIN / LAMKIN from 1930 -- darling baby doll is in near MINT condition -- one of the nicest I have seen. She comes to you in her white cotton batiste gown, matching bonnet, slip, underwear, and booties.


LAMBKINS is appropriately marked on the back of her neck, as spelled with a 'b', where her presentation box (not included with this doll) 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, matching bonnet, slip, flannel undershirt, diaper, booties, all wrapped in her pure white wool weave layette blanket with pastel embroidered flowers and tied with a wide baby pink silk ribbon. The gown set and flannel underwear are original to this lucky baby... she is just precious, precious, precious. I have added a nice pair of knit booties (not shown... sorry I forgot to put them on her for the photo session, but will add a pic shortly).... which she will probably kick off her fat little feet when she gets excited seeing you for the first time when she comes home.




Her composition is in nearly MINT condition -- with NO CRAZING on her legs or head, and only very light internittent crazing on her armsl; she still has soft  PINK BLUSH to her paint -- GREAT COLORING -- arms and head are all original with NO TOUCH UPS and NO RESTORATIONS. Her cloth body is immaculately clean as would be expected -- baby has NO odors from storage.


Her BLUE tin litho eyes are CLEAR and BEAUTIFUL! Her painted lashes and brows are partially present (RARE to find them present at all as they are usually completely rubbed off).


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


Baby LAMBKINS sits beautifully and poses well in her INCLUDED Wicker Presentation basket -- included is a pink cotton dotted swiss pillow, and a pink cotton blanket sheet to keep baby safe and cozy while peacefully sleeping as you await her arrival -- charming baby as there ever was; and you will LOVE her with her adorable face and chubby baby hands.


WRAPPED in her very soft wool weave blanket... all trussed up and cozy with a pink silk ribbon ... she could not be sweeter!


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.
