RARE Early 1940s Effanbee Patsy Joan 15" Black African American Girl Doll






Rarely, rarely do you find these lovely dark brown Patsy dolls, and when you do they are either heavily crazed, cracked and/or peeling... or even completely restored. There are some restored Patsy dolls that have come up for sale in the recent past, BUT I have never seen a restored one that captures and matches the qualities of the brush strokes reflected in the face of an original Effanbee African American doll -- and this Patsy Joan HAS IT ALL.


Standing 15" tall, she is nearly flawless and wears her original Effanbee red-and-white polka dot dress with matching bonnet. This set is super rare in itself as I don't believe this set has been documented previously. It DID come originally on this doll...


PATSY JOAN IS ALL ORIGINAL -- including hangtag -- with NO RESTORATIONS, no repaints -- as she was purchased off the toy store shelf so many decades ago now. Nearly perfect condition -- little to NO crazing -- wearing her darling sundress that has attached panties, and a matching wide-brimmed sunbonnet. Her shoes and socks appear to have never been removed. I did carefully launder her clothing to lighten the white bodice and bonnet brim and lift the brown age-related stains.


Perfect open-close glassene sleep eyes, with a full complement of brush lashes -- thick and even. All painted facial features are present with no rubs to the face paint.


She is immaculately clean and ready to join your vintage Patsy Family and/or African American doll collection.

PERFECT Red Oilcloth side-snap shoes, and silk socks.
