Scarey Ann List

The following list of Scarey Anns has been compiled from many sources. If you have others in your collection, please let me know. Early Scarey Anns were hand painted and therefore exhibit considerable variation. Later Scarey Anns look like they were painted with the aid of stencils and are more uniform in design. All are about 5 inches tall with at least one exception - see photos below.

Many photos on this page are courtesy of 
Ron of antiquestoyscollectibles.

Many thanks to collector Francie Owens who reviewed this list and provided me with photos.

I buy Scarey Ann collections of any size. Contact me if you want to sell.
