ANTIQUE DOLLS


Tiny Antique Bisque Sitting Doll @ £9.50

This is a rather lovely tiny antique bisque naked young child doll in a fixed sitting position, ideal for posing in a bath. No maker or country of origin mark, but assumed to be either German or Japanese and would have been pre WW2.  Some of the colour has been rubbed off her cheeks but otherwise she is in a good played with condition. Measures 1 1/8″ high x 1″ long.  If you have an antique bath or bowl, this would look fantastic perched inside, or maybe wrapped in a weeny antique towel!

Unusual c1920s/30s Buschow & Beck Celluloid Miniature Doll In Original Clothing @ £35.00 SOLD

Here is a lovely old celluloid doll with a helmet makers mark on her back, which after undertaking a little research, I believe to be the mark of the German company called Buschow & Beck. Underneath it also marked GERMANY and 9. The nine is believed to represent its height which is 9cm ( 3 1/2″).  She is very delicate, with moulded features. A nice touch is her red headband around her hair. Her arms and legs appear to be strung with elastic and are moveable. I am assuming that this elastic is original? She has painted moulded socks and shoe detail. Her fabric  dress and matching  knickers appear to be original and are sewn on. There is a little bit of fraying around the edges of the bodice art. A pale blue ribbon sash is still in place, albeit a little stained. So too the dress has a brown stain down the front. Her arms/hands are a little grubby but she is so delicate I am very hesitant to undertake much cleaning. I have just given her arms/hands a gentle wipe with damp cloth. Other than a little dirt on the doll and stain on the front of the dress/sash, she is in a good played with condition. Lovely unusual doll.

Early 1900s Tiny Jointed  Wooden Doll & Wooden Egg @ £49.00 

Here is an exquisite tiny wooden carved doll, all limbs are jointed and moveable (with care)…yes honestly! It is believed to originate from around the early 1900s and is of German origin. The doll is weeny and measures just 3/4″ long.  Facial details and hair are painted on, so too hands and feet detail. It comes with a lovely wooden yellow painted egg with gold rim detail. It unscrews in the middle and the tiny doll sits snugly inside. This really  is a piece for the serious collector. The egg measures 1 1/2″ long. Overall this is in a good played with condition.

Rare & Unique Three c1920s Handmade  Dolls In Ceylon Style @ £15.00

I have never handled quite any dolls like these before and they are utterly unique! They belonged to a lady who as  a child grew up in Ceylon in the 1920s. If you look at these carefully you will see that the style of clothing and  features are very much in the Ceylon style I guess of that time, so really these are a piece of unique social history.  Ok…they have been quite crudely made with ordinary materials that would have been available at that time, and the hand stitching is quite visible in places but they are still charming in their own right. The arms and head have been made by stuffed material, the facial features have been drawn on with pen. There are no legs but the main body has been made as a stuffed tube of material which extends right down to the floor and the long clothing hides this. Each one measures approx. 5 1/4″ high. I think I would describe these as being in a well played with condition, and are a little grubby but I hope there is someone out there who can give these a good home.

c1920s Homemade Peg Doll @ £8.00

Here is a delightful homemade peg doll from the c1920s. The main part of the body is of course, an old fashioned wooden peg and an oddment of wood has been bound across the body to represent the arms. However, the wood looks to have been a scrap of wood as one side the wood is think with a nail hole, and the other side is much thicker. Old lace, ribbon and material have been sewn around the body to create the clothes. The head has been painted in the tradtional peg doll way including hair and facial features. What a curious item this is! Measures 4 3/4″ high.

VINTAGE DOLLS


Pair Of Hard Plastic Vintage Kleeware Dolls @ £6.50

Here is a cute pair of hard plastic dolls, they are identical in pose and detail,  apart from one doll has slightly darker plastic than the other.  Each doll is marked KLEEWARE ENGLAND on the back and probably from the 1950s. The dolls are unclothed and limbs are moulded and fixed in the pose as seen, so would be hard to clothe these. They each measure 3 5/8″ high so quite large. I hope someone can give these two a good home, they are crying out to be loved once again, and are quite charming. Overall, they are in a good played with condition.

Vintage c1950s Crescent Metal Sitting Children Figures – Pair @ £9.50

Not strictly dolls I know but as they are figures, I have decided to put them under this doll category.

Here are a pair of c1950s Crescent Metal Child Figures originally from the Crescent Garden Party Set, and are in a sitting position. The boy has an all blue outfit and the girl a very fetching pink dress. No they have not lost their hands, they were just not manufactured with any so they are actually complete although as you can see, these are rather playworn but nevertheless  quite charming.  I am unsure quite what the exact scale is but let’s just say these could have a variety of uses in an old dolls house ie. as actual doll figures in the smaller dolls house or as dolls house dolls in a larger scale dolls house. In the sitting position each figure measures 1 3/4″ overall height.
