I have been trying to find out information on this Kathe Kruse doll and so far haven't been able to find out very much information.
The doll has its original tag: US Zone Germany; Am I correct in dating the doll 1945-1951?
The foot # is 930438
The body is made of material and the face is hard, but I don't know what it is made of. Any suggestions?
unfortunately the face has fine crack lines. What is the correct term for this type of damage?
Can you tell what type of hair this doll has?
Thank you so much for any help you can give me, I greatly appreciate it.
I was given this doll by my mom and I beleive it to be from her mom. Don't know much else.
It's about 14" tall with original dress and bonnet.
Form hair, bisque, hinged arms and legs. Body, legs and arms all bisque ceramics.
I don't know much about dolls so forgive me, I am just starting to learn.
I don't see any identifyng marks in accessable places, haven't completely undressed her.
I am looking for information on this doll to list. I know nothing about it. I recenlty inherited a storage locker that held my grandmother's belongings. I have inherited many dolls that belonged to her, my aunts and cousins. My grandmother has been gone since 1992 so this is a surprise. I feel this may have belonged to my grandmother.She came from a very wealthy family at the time and her father lavished her with gifts as she was the only daughter. My great Grandfather traveled around the world for business so this may possibly be from Europe.The face is composite, paper mache like. Not composite really like one finds with dolls of the 30s. The hands are a sort of rubber and have splits in them and some old stuffing is coming out. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
