Where to begin with the darling example from Cuno & Otto Dressel? With the delicate ribbon bows and edging of the original sheer cotton ensemble? The magnificent hairstyle which appears as fresh as the day it was styled? Wherever we begin, you will certainly sense the wonder of this incredible German reinforced Wax that represents a beautiful, and quite happy child.
At eighteen and one-quarter inches overall, her size is marvelous. Additional highlights include very nice coloring, inset blue glass eyes, and a cloth body with wax over composition arms, and lower legs that wear black-painted boots. Her original ensemble remains in good condition, but there is scattered foxing present and a bit of fading to the front.
A truly remarkable doll, overall.

Measures: 18 1/4" tall








What could be more wonderful than a Wooden-bodied China, small enough to live in your larger-scale dollhouse? At seven and three-quarters inches tall, she's the perfect candidate!
Details include a perfect shoulderhead with a marvelous, black-painted hairstyle that features a bun of braids in back, and very nicely painted features – she appears to be smiling!
The wooden articulated body, always a marvel, features perfect china lower arms, and china legs that "wear" vermillion-painted slippers. (The left leg appears to have a frozen joint at the hip, which means that she cannot sit.)
The silk brocade dress in chocolate brown and white could not be more perfect - tres elegant.

Measures: 7 3/4" tall

An all original doll is a wonderful find, indeed. Such is the case with the handsome German Holz Masse example. Details include a perfect papier-mache shoulderhead that features delicate coloring, fine painting of facial features, brilliant blue paperweight eyes, and her original human hair wig styled in soft curls. On a stuffed cloth body with leather arms, and legs that feature built-in striped stockings and leather boots, she wears her original wool dress that features blue edging and lace accents. A marvelous woven straw bourrelet, with coordinating blue silk accents, crowns her sweet head.

Measures: 22 1/2" tall, overall






Here is something that we do not see too terribly often, a German China with a wardrobe of clothing! Details of this impressive 27" example include a perfect china shoulderhead with beautiful pale blue eyes, gorgeous coloring including beautifully blushed cheeks, rare pierced ears, and a super up-do hairstyle that features a center part in front, and an intricate braided knot in back.
On what appears to be her original cloth body that is fitted with leather arms, she wears wonderful antique leather boots (fragile) upon her stuffed cloth feet.
Shown here in a darling printed cotton dress that exhibits professional quality sewing skills, you will discover below that she owns an additional two dresses that also feature beautiful quality, plus a marvelous hooded cloak, and a tailored coat. All of her items can be stored for safekeeping if you desire, in her dome-top trunk.
An opportunity to acquire a truly remarkable package is presented here - don't hesitate.








17" German, Wax over Papier-mache featuring a molded blonde hairstyle, pierced ears fitted with the original earrings, inset cobalt blue glass eyes and nicely blushed cheeks - all on a cloth body with composition arms, and shapely legs that wear painted heeled boots.
She does wear her original dress of black gauze that features a field of purple flowers, but its condition is quite tender, with losses to the back and upper sleeve area.
An early example who still retains plenty of charm, largely due to her original condition.








15 1/2"all original English poured Wax child with abundant charm - details include a perfect shoulderhead with lovely coloring, expressive inset blue glass eyes, inserted blonde hair worn down in a luxurious style - all on a cloth body with wax limbs.
She wears a gorgeous original ensemble in cream and blue crochet - it includes crochet underthings as well, even a matching hat!






Like his companion above, a nineteenth-century, Italian, carved wood marionette, this handsome young gentleman depicts a commedia del' arte figure. Standing an impressive thirty six inches tall, he is jointed in all the right places to enable very fluid movements. The carving details upon his expressive face are remarkable – the mask and other details are expertly done, and the glass eyes – very realistic in blown glass with brown irises.
This fellow, who has a body composed of stuffed cotton and carved wood components, with screw eyes remaining here and there that used to give strings an anchoring point, wears a four-piece cotton costume with green wool rope as decoration. Painted stockings and carved wood shoes complete the look.
So much artful expression – and great for display in the right shop or home.


Since we all know time flies, you will have your doll at home in your arms in no time at all!
