Always popular Kammer and Reinhardt character ” Gretchen “, this attractive example is incised ” K&*R 114 46 “, stands 18″ ( 46 cm ) tall, an is on the original fully articulated pink German wood and composition body with original finish. She has molded and painted facial features, blue eyes, the distinctive ” pouty ” expression with full lips and wishful expression. The costume is an attractive white cotton ribbed two piece outfit with pale blue trim and white braid applications in a 1910 era quasi-mariner style. The wig is antique blond mohair with bangs, and the shoes are two-tone brown and black antique canvas impressed ” 4 ” on the cardboard soles. The cream sailor cap is probably not quite as old as the doll but nevertheless attractive and well-coordinated to the costume. Like most K&R painted eyed characters she has typical wig pulls but they are entirely concealed with wig in place and do not distract from her lovely appearance and superlative facial modeling. US$ 2,950

Wonderful model of the Kammer and Reinhardt ” Mein Liebling “, 25” tall, with head incised ” K&*R Simon & Halbig 117 66 “ with brown glass sleep eyes, closed mouth, painted upper and lower lashes, multi-stroke eyebrows, on the original fully jointed chunky wood and composition body with overall excellent original patina.. She wears her original blond mohair curly wig with a yellow silk ribbon tied on one curl , an antique pink cotton dress with a well coordinated straw hat  with pink bows, circa 1910, antique undergarments, antique white leather shoes and pink  stockings.  The bisque quality is very good with nice even coloring with a softly painted mouth. A beautiful example at a reasonable US$ 3,450.

Much larger than average model ( 11”, 27 cm ) Armand Marseille googly with head incised “ Germany 323 A.3/0M. “, with relatively pale and smooth bisque, blue glass side glancing sleep eyes, closed smiling mouth with defined lips, on the original chubby five piece composition toddler body with bare feet. She wears a simple ( and maybe original ) pale pink dotted Swiss gauzy one piece short with lace trim and white gauze underpants, a very nice and full antique blond mohair wig in bobbed style with long bangs, and a newer but appropriate pale blue and white satin bonnet with large upturned brim and cloth flower decorations. One finds many of these dolls in the 5”-7” sizes but these larger versions are much rarer and also have better quality bodies and do not have the “ molded and painted shoes and socks “ always a part of the body style of the smaller and more common ones. ………………………….U$ 695.

11 “ ( 28 cm ) Gebruder Heubach closed mouth pouty boy with head incised “ 6970 Germany  1″ and having blue glass sleep eyes, dimple in chin, and a determined look on his face. He is on the original good quality fully articulated body with original patina and stamped in red with the recognized “ Holz_Masse” logo. The blond mohair wig with side part is original and the costume is an antique two piece long coat and trouser set made of printed and textured pink and white cotton. The shoes are antique camel colored leather with buckles tied with pink ribbon laces and the knee length cotton ribbed stockings are almost the exact color of the shoes. The straw hat is newer than the doll with appropriate in both style and material.  A sweet doll in a size easy to store and at a price hopefully to purchase without “breaking the bank“…….US$ 895.
