Vintage 1930s Effanbee 11" Mold 1 Dy-Dee Ette Baby Doll -- Gorgeous and vibrant face
NO RESTORATIONS ... comes in her original 'Shoebox' style display box.
Baby wears her soft white cotton lawn day gown, RARE Tagged Molly'es dress with embroidered bodice, original slip, and her Molly'es viyella (wool and cotton blend from England -- very popular back in the 30s and 40s for its warmth, softness and durability) coat with matching bonnet. Underneath she wears her rayon knit vest (undershirt), and pure white birdseye weave diaper held on with two tiny 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 early FOOTED Dy-Dee drop-seat pajamas. Then cuddle her up with her PINK ESMOND Scottie Dog theme 'blankie' for a night of extra sweet sleep.
Includes her original powder canister for diaper changing, and her original Hot Water Bottle for nighttime comfort.
Not pictured, but I will include the "What Every Young Doll Mother Should Know" brochure by Aunt Patsy. 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... All are clean and pressed and ready to display.
Baby herself has a beautiful head -- dark molded curls with just one tiny soft rub at the front of her curls -- otherwise pristine and perfect. She has rosy cheeks, vivid painted features, and perfect open and close glassene brown sleepy eyes ; the brush lashes are full and even; please note that she is a very EARLY ISSUE Dy-Dee Ette, and has the 'abbreviated' lashes that, though full and complete do not extend to the outer edges of the eye socket as the later ones do... gives her a very young BABY countenance). 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 and PERFECT -- 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 great condition structurally with vivid classic Dy-Dee graphics on the inner lid; the outside top of the lid has "Diana's Doll" written on the top, but of course, doesn't show when displayed.
This is a RARE and COMPLETE Dy-Dee Ette set from early 1930s in her box.
