Wonderful 1930s set from my personal collection. Curated collection includes THREE all conposition Effanbee Patsy Family dolls:


14" Effanbee Pre-Patent Patsy dressed all original in rare Glad Togs NRA tagged costume

19" Effanbee Patsy Ann in 'sailor' style all original outfit

8" Effanbee Babyette in Navy sailor original  outfit


Each doll is special in his/her own right. The little Babyette SAILOR is the early Babyette with beautiful open-close BLUE tin-litho eyes; a cloth stuffed body and limbs; and tiny celluloid hands. He is in MINT CONDITION -- NO CRAZING, NO FLAWS. He has a perfect and unblemished head, both face and chocolate molded hair. He wears his wool twill sailor suit, socks and black oilcloth shoes.


Patsy Ann is in excellent condition, with just a few very, very light craze lines, and some paint rubs at the joint areas. Patsy Ann has lovely blue tin-litho eyes with full and even lashes; all painted features are well-defined; small bit of paint loss on her upper lip. She wears her original outfit made of very lightweight knit wool; the pleated 'schoolgirl' style skirt is attached to a onesie style underset that pins in the back. Over it she wears a matching jacket with a cute little sailboat applique on one of the two pockets, and a sailor-style tam to match. She still wears her MINT oilcloth shoes and original socks.


And, lastly... here is this very special 1932 issue of Patsy wearing her NRA tagged outfit by Glad Togs for Effanbee. This fabulous outfit is documented in Patricia Schoonmaker's Patsy book and is very, very rare. The NRA patch on her coat sleeve is a delight, as well as a testament to her time and origins. The wool felt pea coat and matching hat are in excellent condition. Underneath Patsy wears a white, sailor collar onesie; there are 4 buttons around the waist where her navy blue wool pleated skirt attaches. I added a mommy-made red silk tie to add some jazz and bring the whole ensemble together. The tie is somewhat crudely handstitched, possibly by a child, which I find befitting and a perfect complement. The wool skirt has several mends where there was probably some moth holes, but the thread and stitching are fine and I didn't even notice them but for close inspection, and I think you'll find them charming as I did.


Patsy herself is the early 1930s issue and is a PATENT PENDING doll. She has some very light craze lines, and I do think her hair has had color added to cover imperfections that gathered over the decades. However, her composition on the whole is smooth, clean and with only minor wear.  Patsy's face is HIGH COLOR and vibrant and without crazing -- full of life!


These THREE charming dolls make a great display and in these trying times... a tribute to a hopeful future for our nation.
