Description of Doll for Sale

I am pleased to present a cute example of an vintage strung Muffie doll from the Nancy Ann Storybook doll company.  This is one of the early dolls and was made in 1953-54.  Muffie appears to be wearing a variant of the original lace overlay dress seen on the first Muffies.  It has the original flowers at the waist which is often seen on vintage Muffie Easter outfits.  She has an original ribbon in her hair so it is unclear if she ever had a hat.  She is wearing vintage Muffie vinyl snap shoes which may have been swapped from a latter Muffie.  The 1953 Muffies usually had satin snap shoes.  She is a type #1 Muffie with only painted upper lashes and no eye brows.  She has a hard plastic strung SLW strait leg walker body.  The walking mechanism works smoothly and moves the head as as expected.  She has her original wig still in it's original factory set.

The body has the early Nancy Ann Storybook California mark without the Muffie name which indicates it is the earliest body. 

Condition of Doll for Sale

The hard plastic head and body are in great shape with no splits, repairs or repainting.  The vintage clothes are in good shape with no foxing or stains, There was one tear in the lace on the side under the arm which I tacked together with a few stitches (see pictures). You can click the pictures to see close-ups of the condition. There may be a few other smaller holes in the lace. 


This is an antique doll that will have some wear and imperfections expected in an antique or vintage doll.  I make every effort to describe all significant flaws in my descriptions and show them in the pictures.  Please read the description fully and examine all the pictures to be sure you understand the condition of the doll.  The pictures can be enlarged to show the doll in great detail.  If you have any questions or would like any additional information on this doll please email me and I will be glad to answer your question.  California residents are responsible for California Sales tax in addition to the purchase price shown.
