Little Nancy Ann...
Vintage Nancy Ann Storybook Doll
These sweet little bisque (ceramic) painted dolls were made from 1937 to 1947.
It is rare to find one today without chips or crazing (having fine cracks)
on the surface of her tiny bisque body. She stands only 51/2 inches high
(smaller than a 9 inch high Vintage Skipper doll.) This Nancy Ann's hair
is soft, curly Mohair. Her little arms move and her legs are stationary.
I love (love) her pouty little face! The Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls
are made to look down from the neck toward their belly as if they are
extremely shy! But, here she is, in her vintage cream colored Muslin dress
posing most reluctantly...for you!
Nancy Ann Abbott, who worked as an actress in Hollywood
and designed dresses for the 'stars,' was the creator of an
extensive line of these little dolls via her company
Nancy Ann Dressed Dolls (1936.)
Enjoy...as she (for a doll) is as sweet as they come!
