Most PRISTINE and MINT Effanbee Bubbles doll you will ever find... ALL ORIGINAL doll -- with NO repairs, NO restorations, NO touch ups of any kind. She has to be SEEN to be appreciated.

Note: Will include her original EFFANBEE metal gold heart hang tag bracelet (not pictured).

This INCREDIBLE doll looks to have arrived straight out of a Time Machine from 1924. She has been thoroughly checked and I can only find ONE tiny craze line at the 'crook' of one foot at the ankle...that is it! Her paint is PINK and absolutely GLOWS... this is NOT a RESTORED doll.

Effanbee dolls are, in my opinion, the finest made composition dolls from Bubble's era, and she is as fine an example of this manufacturer's artistic design and workmanship as you will ever see.

This is the 18" sized BUBBLES -- a composition and cloth MaMa doll from 1924, marked clearly on her back 'EFFANBEE / BUBBLES / Copy. 1924 / Made in USA. Bubbles comes completely original with TAGGED dress, bonnet, slip, socks, and shoes. All in MINT condition, with no tears, mends or separations. Shoes are cream oilcloth, with white cotton socks. Beautiful white cotton batiste fabric has not weakened at all -- still SNOW WHITE with contrasting smocking and pink SILK ribbon and embroidered trims. Her ONLY sign of having been loved so many years ago, is a simple gown, lovingly made by her former owner; muslin gown has an endearing 'blue bubbles' fabric trim at the neckline... seemingly 'calls out her name...' -- I have left her little shift on under her dress, as she came to me that way; it peeks out of the top and sides of her little dress and I think enhances her entire look... SIMPLY OUTSTANDING.

Her glowing pink face has retained ALL its rich, clear features with only a couple of the painted lashes faded on one eye. She has clear, perfect, BLUE tin litho eyes, that open and close just right -- bright whites and vivid irises. Rosy cheeks, sparkling teeth, vibrant color all the way around... her many photos included here highlight her true beauty, and her expression is sheer JOY.

Her disc-flanged limbs are tight and move freely to pose Bubbles and really bring out her personality. Her cloth body is clean, still tightly stuffed, with original non-working crier. What a HAPPY BABY she is! And no wonder, she has little baby teeth... perfect for trying out her 'new' bakelite TEETHING RING that I am including. This ADORABLE CHERUB teething ring is perfectly sized for Bubbles and from nearly the same vintage.

This doll has ABSOLUTELY NO FLAWS at all. A TRUE GEM for any collector of Effanbee or composition dolls... NOT to be missed!
