Body Construction
Sweet Ann is one of Deluxe Reading's larger glamour dolls at 30" tall. She is rigid vinyl or hard plastic, with a softer vinyl head. She is jointed at the neck, shoulders and hips.

She is marked "AE251/3" or "AE251/4G" on the back of her neck.

Sweet Ann wears her fabulous red gown with silver and white underskirt, with red mitts. The bright red satin fabric fades to a duller red over time. Around her neck is a pearl choker, and she wears drop pearl earrings and a tiara of silver sequins. She was available in a bright blue gown as well, under the name Sweet Gail. This blue often fades to purple.

Her original box is pictured above.
