A Time Remembered

Circa: 1968
Condition: Used
Manufacturer: Annalee Mobilitee Dolls/Made in USA
This Annalee Country Girl Bunny with Basket is from 1968 with closed eyes, a tan body, a white floral print dress with eyelet trim and is holding a beige wicker basket still has her cloth tag that is marked: Annalee / 1968 / Meredith / New Hampshire / Made in USA.
Annalee and husband Chip Thorndike lived on a New Hampshire chicken farm. The chicken farm failed in the early 1950's and it was then that Annalee was forced to really get serious about her childhood hobby, doll making with a dash of Yankee influence. So the old chicken coop became a design room, Chip became a salesman, and Annalee a doll maker. Crafted with quality wool blend fabric, Annalee Dolls are unique, both in appearance, and their vulnerability.
Barbara Annalee Davis was born in Concord, New Hampshire in 1915. Annalee passed away after a short illness in her home, on April 7, 2002.
She fashioned her creations directly from the activities of her two sons who were always skiing, swimming or otherwise engaged in what children do best. There is no doubt that this is why Annalee picked more then one mischievous, whimsical face for each of her doll creations.
Today, the dolls that Annalee's design associates create reflect not only easier times, but also Annalee's sense of human nature and humor.
In very good + condition without moth damage, rips or tears, her little cottontail has some discoloration as I have shown in my pictures and she measures 18 inches tall, 7 1/2 inches wide and 9 1/2 inches deep.
An addition to any Annalee Mobilitee Dolls Collection.
