21″ ( 51 cm ) Martha Chase child in near pristine condition, with molded and painted head and shoulder, arms and legs with sewn joints at elbows and knees, and sateen covered body with sewn joints at shoulders and hips. She has brown painted eyes, with long painted upper eyelashes, as well as well-defined fingers with separate molded thumbs. In addition to the wonderful condition, the other outstanding feature of this doll is that she has brown painted hair as opposed to the traditional blond/yellow. The hair is thickly painted to give it texture and “comb-mark” realistic dimensions, as wispy irregular curls framing the face, forehead, and back at neckline. She wears a blue and white cotton undergarments which are sewn securely preventing them being removed, blue cotton socks and dark blackish-blue sandal-style shoes. Other than a few minor paint flecks on back of painted hair it would appear the doll was all but new if one did not know better. A lovely example in best possible condition. SOLD.

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.

Unusual 16″ ( 41 cm ) Lenci girl with brown painted side glancing eyes, blond mohair wig  with long curls, with pensive expression and unique costume. She wears and orange felt and plaid silk scarf, but the unusual aspect is the stiff black oilcloth rainwear consisting of a knee-length slicker and matching galoshes and hat. In addition, sewn to the back of the skirt underneath the coat are the original square paper Lenci tag as well as a black cloth tag reading ” Are Lenci “. The face and legs ar sin a very clean condition with only the most minor surface dust and /or fading. The coat does have one minor horizontal split in front at the bottom with a few ragged edges at the bottom of the coat. A very nice and rare piece. US$ 750.

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 numner plus the height? ). A cheery fellow not often found. US$ 395.
