RARE --1930s Effanbee EARLY SUGAR BABY 22" Composition Doll
This is a wonderful 22" -- LARGE SIZE -- Effanbee SUGAR Baby composition and cloth doll from the 1930's.
She comes dressed in her ORIGINAL FACTORY OUTFIT -- Complete -- a long baby pink cotton batiste gown, with matching bonnet, and matching slip. Original pink striped socks and replaced moccasins.
SUGAR BABY is in Excellent to MINT Condition... there is no paint loss other than a small light rub to her lovely dark brown molded hair. Otherwise her composition is smooth with little to NO CRAZING or flaws to her body. All facial features are clearly defined with beautiful coloring. Her only restoration is a set of replaced irises; her lashes appear to all be intact and even. A couple of very light craze lines to her face separate her from classifying her as a mint doll. Very rare in this condition with original clothing. Her brown molded hair is nearly perfect.
Appropriately marked on the nape of her neck: Effanbee / Sugar Baby
You can read more about Sugar Baby in Ursala Mertz' book, "Collector's Encyclopedia of Composition Dolls, Vol II" on page 79.
Her cloth body is CLEAN and IMMACULATE -- she poses and drapes nicely with LOTS OF PERSONALITY.
A very desirable baby and highly sought after -- with the holidays behind us, this is a great time to celebrate and add baby to your nursery.... Valentine's Day? Birthday? Mother's Day??? All of the above???
