Town, South Africa - passed away on 23 Aug 2011 Northridge, CA) was a popular child movie star
While we could find websites about the actress Sybil Jason, we didn't find any
that identified her dolls, so we made one.
Photo above right; child movie
star actress, Sybil Jason, ca. 1937
1935-1940s Sybil Jason celebrity dolls have been found
in sizes 14 or 19"
tall (other sizes may have been available), all composition jointed body with a human or mohair wig, painted
tin sleep eyes, feathered eyebrows, real upper lashes, painted
lower lashes, closed mouth, dolls are unmarked, clothing is unlabeled.
It is unknown
who actually produced these dolls. A doll shown in Mertz's
Composition Doll book, Volume I, named a Stewardess doll is a Sybil Jason doll.
This doll face mold is similar to the dolls designed by Dewees
Cochran for Effanbee 1936-1939 called: American
Children dolls, also made of all composition, but they have very
different hands. Cochran's doll design had very detailed hands with
separate spread apart fingers, while the dolls shown here have less detailed hands, with
a separate thumb and the rest of the fingers together.
