A piece of history.... Nancy Ann Storybook dolls were tiny popular children's dolls made in the late 1930's-1950's. The dolls were high-quality collectibles with hand-painted faces, charming use of fabrics and trim on the costumes and realistic looking hair. The creator of Nancy Ann Story book dolls, Ms. Nancy Ann Abbott, grew her company from a tiny cottage industry into a large corporation and was one of the most successful female CEOs in the 1940's. The earliest dolls are so valuable today because early in her career, Ms. Abbott had only three or four employees and could not produce many dolls. Initally, doll bodies were imported from Japan. The build up to World War II led Ms. Abbott to open a ceramic factory in California so her dolls would be completely American made.The early Nancy Ann dolls are stamped with one of the following marks impressed into the bisque on their backs.
