Magnificent for its size at nearly twenty-three inches tall, is a German, wax over papier-mache Taufling. Details include a wax coated shoulderhead that features an open mouth with teeth, dark brown pupil-less eyes, and painted curls upon the solid dome head. The cloth center portion of the taufling style body features a squeaker (now inoperable) in addition to nicely modeled arms (flake to finger tips on underside of right hand) and legs.
The doll is costumed in the enfantine manner in an original, sweet, printed cotton dress, antique underthings, plus an antique hat and leather slippers.

Thank you, C.





10 1/4" of sweetness is exemplified by this German fellow that we attribute to the Schilling Company. Details include a molded papier-mache shoulderhead with a closed mouth, inset blue glass eyes, delicate painting and his original natural skin wig.
On a cloth body with molded composition arms (flake to fingers on right hand) and legs, this little guy is decked out in his original Scottish plaid costume. In additional, he wears fantastic shoes antique shoes from the Kestner firm.
He's just a wee lad - whose price will not break the bank.

Thank you, C.

Glorious may just be the perfect word to describe this magnificent piece of religious art. Housed under a presentation case of gilt paper and hand-rolled glass since the dawn of the nineteenth-century, the case performed its duties well. The condition of this altar piece is pristine. Upon the silk velvet bed with gilt paper trim and gold metal decoration-silken bedding with delicate embroidery, rests a wax figure of The Child upon an embroidered pillow. The figure is dressed in a gown of silk with further embroidery and is protected under a canopy of fabric woven from silver threads-gold bullion tassels and passementerie add dimension. A crown of incredible paper flowers finishes the piece.
Case measures: 21-1/4" tall, 11" deep, 17-1/2" wide.

Each measures: 9 1/2" tall

Residing in a shadow box fantasy-land of flowers, feathers, sea shells and Erzgebirge wooden toys for well over a century now, this mint condition Papier-mache has enjoyed quite the good life!
The German doll, who stands around twelve-inches tall overall, is of the type that was referred to as a "varnished head" when new – and she has certainly not changed much over time, as the finish upon her face, hairstyle and shoulders remains glossy and pristine. The same can be said of her remarkable original costume, complete with a knitted hat which is worn in a chic, up-turned fashion.
The shadow box retains its original, wonderful, hand-rolled glass front which is puttied in place, and permanently so. This feature could make shipping this item risky, so we can arrange hand-delivery to local, or West Coast areas, or wherever we participate in shows, including the Atlanta-area this Summer.
A true work of art, and a memorial to a special childhood of long, long ago.

Measures: 14 1/2" tall x 17" wide x 4" deep.


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