The Patsy Joan doll came in two different sizes. In the 1930s the 16″ Patsy Joan’s hair was styled in a short bob like the other Patsy family dolls. In 1946 Patsy Joan was issued as a 17-inch doll with molded curly hair and marked Effandbee on her back. Dresses and hats are available in both sizes.
The 14 Patsy Family dolls range in size from 6″ to 30″. This dress and cloche hat, typical of the era, will likely fit other similar dolls of the era also. Patsy dolls were very popular and very imitated. Here is a link to the look-alike Patsy dolls.
