Arranbee was located in New York and made bisque, composition, rubber, hard plastic and vinyl dolls. They were a well known USA doll manufacturer who in their early years imported dolls and parts to be assembled in the USA, some of their bisque doll heads were made by Armand Marseille and Simon & Halbig, but later they produced their own high quality dolls. Arranbee also has a history with the Vogue doll company.

In 1959 Arranbee was bought by the Vogue Doll Company who continued to use the R & B marking until early 1961.

I am looking for a doll that I rec'd for Christmas 1958.I remember seeing it in a catalog-Sears? Montgomery Ward? I think it was called a Nancy Lee doll and had dark brown chin lenght stright hair that'grew' when you brushed it. Not a baaby doll and not a barbie either. Thanks
