Well I bought this from the owner herself. good condition, She told me that the doll was "well stored, not well restored" so I aquired this along with trunk and ten outfits for 40 bucks..My problem is that I although the back of her neck says Effanbee Anne Shirley, everytime I google that, I always get dolls that do not resemble this one at all. My thought was that this is a mutant doll, and that someone threw this head on the body,Confused,Help =(

    It's a Anne Shirley, but it an open mouth version that you see on the composition dolls..hmm. The eyes are blown, and that is too bad, but she is well worth $40 for the clothes alone. Let me look around and see if Effanbee used that body for another doll.

    Yay, thanks so much

    Okay..tell me this is the head composition? I can't see it that well, but I see the body looks like hard plastic. I don't usually see blown eyes in hard plastic dolls

    I want to say its composition. For me it would be better to tell if there were a crack, but starring at it ,I would lean more towards compo than Hard Plastic

    This is bugging me. What is her body made of? I have the Effanbbee doll book from 1949-present and she is not in there. It looks like a Mary Lee head mold. But she would have to be a jointed composition doll, her face looks composition, and in extrememly good shape
  6. xxmrtnzxx xxmrtnzxx, 4 years ago
    Her body Is definately hard plastic, by no means composition
  7. Vestaswind Vestaswind, 4 years ago
    It has to be! Nice! Okay go here and look at the faces, some of these dolls used the Anne Shirley body mold, and a different head mold. Now we just need to figure out who she is exactly. In the future with dolls like these take close up's of the face

    I replaced one of the photos with a better face shot
  10. xxmrtnzxx xxmrtnzxx, 4 years ago
    If you notice there is a slight crack by her brow, and her face resembles the mary lee to some extent but im truly Baffled
  11. Vestaswind Vestaswind, 4 years ago
    Excellent. Now you have to be careful with her because I think she is all compositon just in such good shape she looks hard plastic.
  12. Vestaswind Vestaswind, 4 years ago
    Does she have a slightly broken finger? You should be able to tell from that. It will be a gray almost a paper mache type material
  13. xxmrtnzxx xxmrtnzxx, 4 years ago
    Yes I was told she lived in her trunk in her mother attic for decades, and I orginally thought she was full composition but between google was telling me Anne Shirley was Hard plastic , I just never knew her name or time
  14. Vestaswind Vestaswind, 4 years ago
    No the older ones had the open mouth marked Anne Shirley. She's around the 30's or early I'm guessing
  15. xxmrtnzxx xxmrtnzxx, 4 years ago
    Yes and Yes! its grey in color... what does that tell us? exciting!
  16. Vestaswind Vestaswind, 4 years ago
    It's all compostion :)
  17. xxmrtnzxx xxmrtnzxx, 4 years ago

  18. xxmrtnzxx xxmrtnzxx, 4 years ago

    Hello,
    I have a composition Anne Shirley doll, she came dressed it a long sheer yellow gown or peignoir with multi-color round trim. I have seen this trim on other Anne Shirley outfits, and I'm wondering if the outfit is original. She is about 15" tall, and was wearing ice skates. Thank you,
