Early All Original Georgene Composition Doll Flirty Eyes C1930's A Special Girl

Early ALL Original Georgene Composition Doll Flirty eyes! c1930's A Special Girl
Description

We arepleased to offer this vintage composition doll. She is the 20" Georgene from the 1930's. Composition flange head, arms with curled fingers, legs to above the knee, cloth body with stitched hip joints. She has full length arms, wired on at shoulder level and can rotate. Honey blonde mohair wig over molded hair done in tight ringlets that peek out from under her bonnet. Blue flirty sleep eyes, brown lashes, closed mouth. She was made by the Georgene Averill Manufacturing Co circa 1937 New York City. This doll is special as it is the version with flirty eyes, which makes her so much more desirable and adorable. She is pictured on a full two page color layout in the book "Collector's Encyclopedia of American Composition Dolls" 1900-1950 Volume 2 by Ursula R. Mertz. Page 126-127. It shows her in her original clothes and with different colored wigs. She is a beautiful example of the doll pictured with All Original clothes including her underclothes and diaper. Original oil cloth shoes and socks. Her face paint is almost perfect, she even has eye shadow! Composition just needs a light cleaning if you desire.You have to search long and hard to find a doll in such pristine original condition. The only condition issues that I can see are a few very tight cracks above and below her eyes. The pictures show them very well, as a matter of fact the pictures really magnify the crack and make them look larger than they really are. Believe me you will not be disappointed with her. She has a stain on her original diaper and the sole of her shoe and a small stain on her ribbon of her bonnet. I do not believe any child played with her, poor girl! My husband had the pleasure of taking the many beautiful photos of her and even he was amazed at her condition after 76 years!! What more can I say except she came real close to spending the rest of her life with me but my husband says I have too many keepers now!! ugh! The sadness came when he put her in her shipping box and brought her up to me and the look she gave me was like (Please let me stay) please!! We included that picture so you could take a look and see what I mean...ok I am nutty I guess. I am not a doll expert just a collector who appreciates the beauty of these playthings that were meant for a child to love. In her case I do not think that ever happened so please give her a loving home. Mrs. Ursula Mertz who wrote the encyclopedia did not mention that these dolls were ever made with fliry eyes so I believe she is a special production! In any case she is a beautiful doll that you will not be disappointed with and should be proud to own. She also mentions in the book that it is assumed that this doll was produced during WWll or shortly after, a time of persisting shortages. Usually these mama dolls are dressed in lace trimmed cotton panties and matching slips. In this case, a coarse cotton diaper and slip made of a different material showing no lace trim were used. The simple but attractively styled outfit is made of a strange, shiny material......as to say the war shortages affected production of dolls as well!! I thought that was quite interesting.
