This particular Raggedy Ann doll is now 44 years old. She spends most of the year in a box filled with other dolls her same age. Every Christmas all of the dolls come out of the box for a display on top of the piano.
When the holidays were over this year, I held Raggedy Ann out of storage for a few weeks so I could paint her one more time. The elastic in the waistline of her pantaloons is badly worn and the pants hardly stay up, but she endured and we both enjoyed a few hours together. She is now back in the box with her friends. Sold
