About the brand: 

"Storybook dolls were one of the Nancy Ann company's main doll lines. Marketed as "Wee Dolls for Wee Collectors," they were inspired by nursery rhymes and jingles.  The bisque storybook dolls were produced from 1936 to 1948. By 1943 there were as many as 125 different characters created.  Identifying a Storybook doll that does not have her original wrist tag or box can be difficult, as Nancy often changed her dolls'outfits, using different materials from year to year."

Quoted from:

Storybook dolls were the first dolls marketed as collector dolls for small girls.
