Dolls, which I “saved” on Ebay)))

Good day my dear readers. I am very grateful to all for the comments and kind words to my little stories. Today’s story is about “rescued” dolls. It’s humor, of course, but I really liked the comment of one of my clients. After a long day of work, which sometimes ends at almost midnight or later, I love to browse through lots of doll sales on Ebay. Often these night vigils end with shopping. Sometimes I even win auctions, if one or another lot I really want to have. And the most important thing is that very rarely happen frustration after shopping. I’ll show you my latest purchases. Perhaps will be a little more photos than usual. I’ll start in order. First, from the UK came here a couple of small plastic dolls Edi. They arrived, as it was prescribed in perfect condition.IMG_5445

The kids are very cute and resemble a family of Danish villagers.
After them, came here is a “pearl” in my collection. The pupa is porcelain, with an amazing face and a blue bow. Unfortunately, her legs are connected, but the comforting that her handles are moving and give me the opportunity later to dress it.IMG_5453IMG_5455

While writing this post, it seems that they all arrived one after another))) But of course the spaces between their arrival gave me time to wonder and enjoy their beauty and magic.
Farther! A whole family’s here. and all these pupae were also in good condition and marked Shildkrot. I believe that many people are very familiar with this brand of German plastic dolls. Here’s a quick photo on arrival.IMG_5423

Then already I partition and washed them. Cleaned off the dirt and landed on the couch for a photoshoot) two of them are 10 centimeters in size and one 8.5 centimeters in size. He later received a gorgeous sailor suit. As many of you know, the nautical theme in doll clothes is my favorite theme. And many dolls of my collection have marine outfits.4973

The doll height 10cm ( 4 inches) already got a nice outfit. Hat, pants, and jacket.49814983

All of them have not yet got a full wardrobe for a fashion show. But there is a holiday, and I hope that the outfits will be created. Maybe one of my clients will come up with interesting clothes.
And at the end of my story, there’s something funny and interesting. Past this of a couple of I could not pass. The faces and the size of these babies touched me in the heart. The authors are unknown to me. and the seller also has no idea who created this miracle. But it is important that they are and they are adorable.4996

Kids are made of porcelain. They’re very small, only 2 inches tall.49854991

No, it seems not all))) I took the photo decided to take a photo of my wall of honor. It is not complete and the exposition should be changed. But I, like you (I hope so), love to look at jobs and shelves with dolls. Welcome to a small part of my workshop.494849504954

Petite Blyth.

I was always afraid of these dolls, and I didn’t plan on buying them. But the little doll I took the risk to buy. It was important for me to understand if I could make clothes for her. And, finally, she is in my home. I will make a reservation at once, I bought not the original. But now I think, that need to buy and “the right” doll. Blythe (in English transcription of Blythe) is a collectible doll with a disproportionately large head in relation to the body, inside of which is hidden a mechanism that allows you to change the color of the eyes and the direction of gaze. brandymallory1350244295

A little bit of history and facts about Blythe.

Blythe doll was born in 1971 in Marvin glass Studio in Chicago, Illinois and was originally intended for children.  The first Blyth was produced by the American company Kenner (Kenner), now this doll is better known as Kenner Blythe or vintage Blythe. In 1972, production ceased due to lack of demand. In the same 1972, the Blythe doll was produced in parallel, and in the Japanese market by the company Tomy (Tomy), but also had no success, and the production of it was discontinued. Now-dolls release 1972 from Kenner and Tom are very rare, valued by collectors and are expensive.

Production of dolls resumed only in June 2001 already in Japan by Takara (Takara), which received a production license from Hasbro (Hasbro) new version of dolls Blythe – Neo Blythe (Neo Blythe). 23rd June 2001 is the day of the revival of Blythe, in honor of this event every year in June/July issued a limited-edition commemorative doll Blythe, which has a more complex elaboration of the image.0_afe6f_9f215a0_L

Another company that received a license for the release of Blaze from Hasbro (Hasbro) in America in 2004 was the company Ashton Drake (Ashton Drake Galleries, abbreviation ADG). ADG Blythe-in fact this doll reproductions the 1972 version from Kenner, but more modestly dressed and inexpensive. The license for the release of dolls ended in 2009.TB2PQlMXwL8F1JjSsphXXXknVXa_!!1783262272

Thus, Blythe doll was produced at different times by different companies:

1972-American company Kenner (Kenner)
1972-Japanese company Tomi (Tomy)
2001 and to this day-the Japanese company Takara (Takara). These dolls are popular among collectors, they can be purchased in our store collection dolls in the appropriate section of the catalog.
2004-2009 – American company Ashton Drake (Ashton Drake Galleries)

This information will be useful to those who want to have such a doll.

At the moment, under the brand name Takara dolls are produced on three scales, but I will not go far into them. My baby doll is the smallest. Doll Petit Blythe (Petit Blythe) height 11.5 centimeters released. d39cccaf2d03

The face of the doll is covered with a glossy coating, no eyebrows. The doll’s body is frosted. The hair is stitched into a soft scalp that is glued to the head.

 

I not immediately has become to change this image and a long time my baby was here is such a. The majority of Blythe very simple makeup – eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick on her lips.IMG_5080

The mobility of Blythe’s body is limited by the rotation of the head, waist, arms and legs rotate in up-and-down directions, but do not divorce to the sides. Hand dolls are not bent legs Blaise bent at the knees a few clicks.il_570xN.1441639477_qn52

As my fascination with dolls already has a considerable age), I got some wigs. So I decided to change the image of the doll and tried on her new wig. I think he was better suited to the pale skin of this girl.43914541il_570xN.1440860276_7j8o

My lovely crocheted doll!

 

The initiator of the professional holiday was made by the Iranian theater worker Divad Zolfagariho. In 2000, the XVIII Congress of the International Union of figures of the theatre of dolls has considered this proposal. But the question of the place and time of the celebration remained unresolved. At the meeting of the UNIMA international Council in 2003, the participants agreed on the date of the event. The festival has received wide support and spreading around the world.IMG_2873

The first mention of the puppet theater was depicted in Ancient Egypt. During the holidays, women went from one settlement to another with songs. In the hands, they wore special figurines of the thread by which the last move. Such dolls are still made in Latin America and Syria.

Thanks to archaeologists and their work, we can learn how the celebrations were held in the 16th century BC. The puppeteer was not only in Egypt but also in Greece and Ancient Rome. Someone came up with splitting the box in half to symbolize peace. With such products, puppeteers went to Europe and showed their performances.

Later boxes were added to the scenery, it helped to mark the location of the depicted actions. However, admired not only decoration and elegance introducing the dolls. At all times, the work of a man who forced his wards to “revive” in his skillful hands was appreciated.к5

There is a traditional puppet theater in every corner of the world and, like hundreds of years ago continues to amuse and surprise its audience.

Today I received in the mail my new dolls. It seems I’m becoming a collector))) About them, I will tell you in one of the next posts. All the more that news I have there are very many!!IMG_5413

Story about Old ladyes

After a long absence I’m back))) Hello! the story I’m going to tell you today ended surprisingly well. I was very nervous and was waiting for a letter from a client. So, will talk about order.
Some time ago, Mary stopped by my shop. She long chose and asked questions about this or that dress. I asked her what she was looking for and how I could help her.She needed two little dresses for dolls. We began to think and choose the right yarn and style. And then Mary sent me a picture of the dolls. Not hide, I was very surprised these photo)) Such models I still not seen, although for many years worked with different dolls and even by small dogs!
Here is this photo!IMG_0154IMG_0153

Mary wrote that these old salt shakers. They are already 100 years old! Imagine my excitement and surprise. It was necessary to dress up these respectable ladies in outfits that suit them by age and beauty)
The difficulty was that their body had a small stand and so I had to adjust the style and to think of how to do it.
we decided to make a simple style with buttons on the back. Work has brought me great fun and turned out so well….

Welcome to the world of “Caco” from Fritz Canzler

Many people always wonder why others collect collections, especially when these collections seem strange to them. Doll collection more often than others can raise questions and concern for others. Are the collectors hesitate when you have to explain it’s a hobby.   Collecting dolls is not uncommon, and even has its own term — Plangonologia. ( I didn’t even know about it before)!IMG_0376

Professional collection less need of explanation than the Amateur that does not consist of antique, vintage, or unique art dolls, and doll games. But “lovers” are no less positive emotions from your Hobbies.

From the point of view of psychology, collectors dolls are no different from other collectors, for example, stamps, coins, or cars. Psychology does not give an accurate explanation of people’s desire to spend huge amounts of time, money and energy to maintain its collections, but has a few assumptions:

 

* Happy moments from the past
* Filling inner emotional emptiness
* The pursuit of thrills
* A sense of control over the situation
* Unconscious desire to replenish their collections.

I don’t want to get lost in a psychological maze so I will not discuss these reasons. I will touch on only some.  The first idea or the reason for the gathering of dolls I like. Therefore, I will consider it the most important!

So. As I wrote clever words, and what…..? And the fact that a week ago, my friend Anna ( about her I already wrote, remember how we played with dolls?) showed me a miniature boy doll. Thin and incredibly lifelike face, this doll put me in awe.$_57

And..I, as a real collector now), I decided that I want this miniature doll in my collection!!!    And of course, I started to look for information. Look what I found.

In the early 1900-is in Germany (the first mention occurs in 1906) Herr Canzler started the company in the export of toys, dolls, doll clothes and accessories. In consequence, the numerous overlays that are related to suppliers, after the I-St World war, together with Herr Hoffmann, he still decided to launch their own line of dolls. Date of Foundation of the company Canzler & Hoffmann 1924, the headquarters of the Sonnenberg.
In 1925 registered the logo of the company, which has manufactured products until the early 50-is.image caco

You are absolutely right. I’m talking about the very well-known firm of dollhouses ” Caco”.

In 1927 the first doll saw the light.46447f97d685

It was a small doll for doll houses, through the frame was plastic, can make different poses. Hands and feet were made of lead, head of plastics (composites and papier mache)
Later, in the early 30’s, dolls were made of celluloid, for the effect of the skin. After the ban of lead and celluloid, the production switched to plastic. The heads were also plastic. But it was too late.

There is mention that the firm was represented at the Leipzig fair in 1939.e56e2f8079bb

In 1945, the company moved to Neustadt – Coburg (American occupied zone), a certificate of registration is in 1948. From 1951-1953, the company changed its name and logo, now it’s called CaCo – CanzlerCoburg.a0eeb733e1e4

Was built its production. Corporate logo was decorated exactly in Coburg.
In the early 70s, the company was sold.
However, the Brand is well known in our time, the company continues to manufacture mobile dolls Biegepuppen, for collectors and special occasions make dolls with porcelain heads are made and various miniatures for doll houses.96273eaee060
The management of the company carries out Frau Berndt-Hausser.
Here’s how to change the technology, visible winding different materials, different materials goals, was replaced by a drawing of the face.0b2fa9826c2c
