Vintage Effanbee 37 Open Mouth Anne Shirley (deewees) Doll For Sale

Vintage Effanbee 37 Open Mouth Anne Shirley (deewees) Doll

I had a bit of a struggle trying to identify this doll, which I believe to be Anne Shirley, from 1937, the open mouth (Ice Queen), designed by Dee Wees Cochran. This doll was only made for about 4 months, as indicated in my reference material, Modern Collector’s Dolls, Smith, Second Series, pg. 87. The reason given, was that her teeth fell out! This doll has her original teeth! What is distinct about her, is the extension of the upper lip paint on either side. That is clearly visible in the picture in the book, which is in black and white. Her eyes are clear and bright. Great facial details, full soft lashes. I noticed that the eye opening is distinctly smaller, than the American Child dolls. She has the Dee Wee look, but was not an American Child, so I continued to search. She is composition, in beautiful shape for her age, clean, and will need to be restrung, so the pictures are a bit awkward looking! She has a mohair wig, which I think looks original to the doll, but could be a replacement. It does not look to have been removed and replaced, I could be wrong. Plenty of hair. The style is matted and flattened, but I did see a similar style, on an Anne Shirley. There is minimal crazing, a bit on one arm, but very fine. No rough dings to the surface of this doll, and no smells. There is some wear to the paint around the legs and arms, where it fits into the torso. No seams splits, a very sturdy doll. She is 17 inches tall. She is marked EFFANBEE, USA on her torso. Some were marked Anne Shirley, others had no marks, as indicated in my resource material. Complete nail paint, ever so slight brush to lip paint. I have cleaned this doll, for clarity. She was found in the dress I have presently listed, but that is not to say, it was original to this doll, because that dress was shown in a 44 catalog, and several of these dolls, were found at the same time. I do not know, if the open mouth Shirley was offered with a singular outfit, or a variety of them. Her face is very distinct. I will ship her knocked down, as she needs to be strung. Super nice, and rather elusive dollie!
