Beautiful 20′ ( 51 cm ) Käthe Kruse ” Deutsche Kind ” girl with narrow face and pensive look, molded and painted facial features, and wearing a light brown human hair wig with center part with braids tied on each side of the head. She has a cloth body with one piece arms and hands, a solid torso with legs attached at hips by diagonal joints, however the body on this type of doll is more slender that found on the ” DOLL I “‘s perhaps portraying a slightly more mature child. She wears an original above-the-knee one piece dress with textured white cotton on top and a see-through pink organdy skirt and wide collar. The socks are white ribbed cotton and the shoes white leather. Unfortunately she lacks undergarments, but otherwise, is a very nice doll and ready to display. US$ 1,250.

11″ ( 28 cm )  to top of pointed hat, whimsical Schuco cloth velvet and felt ” yes-no ” gnome whose head goes up and down as side to side by moving the metal mechanism hidden under the back of the trousers. He has a felt airbrushed face with white mohair beard, velvet trousers and cap, felt jacket and tops of sandals, and black metal glasses frames. In addition he has movable joints at shoulders and hips to allow for extra positioning. He is wonderfully clean with near brilliant color with little to no fading. Pinned to his jacket is a round white paper tag with brass edge reading in old pen script “7181/28” ( perhaps a store inventory number plus the height? ). A cheery fellow not often found. US$ 395.

Exquisite in appearance, modeling, and condition, this 22” ( 55 cm ) “ Philadelphia Baby “ by Sheppard and Company of said city, with molded and painted oilcloth head and shoulder,  with similarly executed lower arms and legs with bare feet and cloth covered heavy cloth torso , is one of the nicest and brightest we have had the pleasure town in a long time. Blacklight inspection reveals no repair or repainting, and the paint remains thick , with even the fingernail outlines still present. The eye modeling is somewhat three dimensional with separately molded upper and lower molded lids, with white highlight dots in the center of the deep brown irises and black pupils. The ears are separately molded and the upper lip has a distinct philtrum in the center and lips are still almost ruby red in tone. He/she wears an antique white cotton dress ( remember young boys also wore dresses in this time frame { very early 1900s } ), old undergarments, knit socks, a  tight -knit ribbed cotton sweater , and very nice good quality camel colored leather side button boots with thread rosettes, old, but probably not quite as old as the actual doll. Covering all the inner clothing is a knee length red wool coat with brassy colored buttons. A remarkable example at a very reasonable price of only……………….US$ 1,650.

Extremely attractive Martha Chase child in impressive size ( 28”, 71 cm ) with molded and painted oilcloth head and shoulder, forearms, and lower legs of similar construction and decoration, with hard stuffed body with sateen covering, with sewn joints at elbows, shoulders, hips, and knees. The doll is well costumed in all antique clothing consisting of linen, cotton, and wool undergarments, a long pink and white striped wool pleated dress, a gauzy cotton pinafore and well coordinated bonnet which ties under the chin, and antique leather children’s shoes. All the painted surfaces are in excellent original condition but with some old deterioration to the sateen body covering on lower front torso and upper legs. These have some old repairs but are not visible when clothing in place and appear to be holding well with no need for further concern. Other than Chase mannequins and the weighted, so-called “ hospital dolls “ , it is difficult to find the normal early actual dolls in this grand size………….RESERVED.
