This is an amazing 27" all composition Effanbee Patsy Ruth doll. She belonged to my mother in law who verified that everything is original--the hairstyle, dress, underclothes, shoes and socks! This Patsy Ruth even comes with the original Effanbee heart shaped bracelet. She has been carefully stored away for many years and was not played with very much. She remembers getting her in the 1930s but could not be certain of the year. We recently brought her to a doll show where the appraiser was very excited to see her and said she was the best example of a composition doll she had seen in a very long time.

The composition is in near perfect condition with very minimal crazing to no noticable crazing on the body and legs. The dress is a beautiful pink with overlay, silk ribbon and flower accents on shoulder. The dress overlay piece is becoming frail from age. White anklet socks with gold sandles. She has beautiful blue sleepy eyes, blonde hair with one braid pulled over the top of her head. She has a ribbon in her hair.

She does need her strings tightened but that would be all she needs to be the highlight to any collection.

Included along with the doll are several pieces of homemade doll clothes that had been packed away with the doll. I decided that since they had been together for so long, they should stay that way.

I am willing to send additional photos if you are interested so you can get a better look at every amazing detail.

Patsy Ruth will be very very carefully packaged and insured when shipped.
