Vintage composition Dionne Quintuplets dolls with crib and nurse, 1930's
A complete set of 1930’s unmarked composition Dionne Quintuplets baby dolls, approximately 6-1/2 long (when undressed). Madame Alexander acquired the rights to make dolls representing the quintuplets, but many other doll/toy companies in the mid and late 1930’s made unlicensed versions of the quints, including American companies. This set is unmarked (most of Effanbee Dionne sets were). They used the Tinyette baby as the model for their Quint babies and then made the colorful pastel matching gown and bonnet for each doll. Each baby has a solid dome composition socket head with jointed arms and jointed bowed infant legs, brown/black painted hair, adorable faces with side glancing brown eyes, painted lashes and rosebud mouths. They are all wearing their original factory clothing that consists of pretty cotton dresses with attached slips, wonderful quality made matching bonnets with wide lace-trimmed brims, pinned diapers and slouchy socks/booties. Their costumes are all in very good condition having no holes or tears. Dress fasteners are brass pins. Each baby has their own color coordinated initial bracelet and a bunny toy (bunnies were added). They come in a shared wood crib (with pad and pillow). They are all tightly strung. The compo condition is generally very good on all of them. There is crazing, however, here and there on all of the baby dolls (please see my pictures) but it is expected and not visible at all when the dolls are displayed dressed… AND the crazing and any other imperfections have been treated and stabilized with a liquid “preservative”. The treatment makes these dolls now very sound, without any future. In person this is a very pleasing little set of Quints. Included in my offer a very cute 13 composition full jointed Nurse doll and. The pin is a collectible I had and thought it would look good pinned on her. This Nurse doll is “unmarked” and I believe may be an early Effanbee from the thirties or forties. (she is not original to the set but I have included her and the pin as a token of my appreciation). The Nurse doll is dressed in complete uniform (hand fashioned). She has a braided styled mohair wig and a lovely face that almost matches the quintuplets. A very sweet, unique set 80+ years old that should please any collector. I just found (5) little “paper” name tags and I will include these as well. If you have any questions I’ll be happy to answer.
