Travel, dolls and plans!

I just came from the post office. Before of a small vacation, all the orders are sent, and now I can relax a little.
What to do in these few days before the flight?

Start collecting things in a suitcase? Too early))) a Little quiz about where I was going. This is one of the provinces of the large European countries. 1500383704_545882_27
She is known around the world for various attractions, holidays, and symbols. On holidays there playing the accordion and drink beer. In the vicinity of the capital of this region’s many castles.Neuschwanstein People seem open and friendly. I recognize this very soon and will definitely tell you on my blog!

To sum up the year and my blog? Too early.
Lately, my side has been a clear failure in writing new posts. But it is understandable. New doll chained my attention. As often happens, each new resident in my dollhouse too much I work on it. My new model is this Lady. 600She comes from a family of dolls from Heidi Ott. I already told you about them. So…this is quite a complex model. With a small increase only 5.5 inches, it has the proportions of the female body. And not a hike to my baby dolls.
She has a very Tokaj waist. Just like Dita von Tiss)))25166_DitaVonTeese_0 And this causes some complications in calculating and knitting. But I don’t know how to be depressed and not looking for easy ways)) So the basic closet turned out fabulous!344437303613ys3691ho6

A few days before you travel, to try new ideas and think about the new collection) and of course on those lovely kids who are waiting for me on my journey. They already bought one of them long-awaited doll from CACO!!! HURRAY!!IMG_4359

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”.

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

Heidi Ott dolls family

Doll collections are not always made quickly. They are replenished slowly, and often consciously. The beginning of this collection was launched a few months ago when I bought a Toddler doll. When I got used to it and loved it, I thought I’d be able to create clothes for the little doll from the collection of dolls for the Dollhouse. So I got the baby from Heidi Ott.

As I wrote, these dolls strike a very delicate and attention to detail of the body and especially the face. It seems that the faces as living and never cease to wonder at this amazing drawing of faces.

So the other day my house finally came with the following doll from a large collection of dolls Heidi. This is the Doll Lady. Her height is 5.5 inches. She^s body is not a puppet in the usual our understanding of the meaning. It’s really the female body in a very reduced size. Quite harmonious and proportionate. Now my small family to gather.

Black kitty & White Cat

A very small post about the cats) I don’t have cats, now I can’t afford to have it for different reasons. But I like cats, I like their independence and watch them very interesting. Imagine what a serious event, on stage someone reads the report on an important topic. The audience carefully closets Rapporteur…..and here on stage, behind the scenes it turns out the cat……. She slowly walks down the stage, encircling the audience and the Rapporteur’s attention. Then stop, for example, scratch behind the ear.открытие сезона_40м
Do you think that will be focused on all the attention to the speaker or not? Well, of course, all the audience’s attention is now focused on the cat! And it will continue to until she decides to go on his cat)
I’m not going to write about the symbolism of cats and their magical nature. But they will always be interested in us, and we tolerate their antics and intractable temper because we love them!il_570xN.978377298_oz8x

Pattern for Julia

Now I am asked to write a pattern for knitting dresses. I’m sure is written it. And I’ve already started working on it. I must admit that I find it difficult to do yourself. Definitions and abbreviations for the description of works in Russian and English languages differ from each other. And method of knitting, as I recently learned, is also different. But that does not mean to associate knitting my dress will be difficult. I will try to write easier and make more photos, so you will understand the process of its creation. But let’s focus on some of the complexities of this process.

1 Tools for the job.
I work very thin needles for knitting. Their size of 1 mm. In the American system, they have the number 0000.D9987-3 (1)
2 Yarn.
As you know from my previous posts, I also choose a very thin yarn. For example, yarn Nirvana has such data in 25 g (0,88 oz) of 340 meters (372 yds)
In this work, it is very important patience and attentiveness.

But I tried to make the pattern is not very complicated dresses. It turned out to be quite interesting and exciting for me. The dress I chose that.title 1

I like dresses for dolls, which you can then add different accessories or create a similar dress a second time, slightly change the pattern of knitting. Like this white knitting dress. It is patterned, but a little-added ornament on the front.2194

If you are interested in this dress, you can see it in my store on Etsy.

Plastic celluloid dolls

Today’s post is just an overview. While I was busy with orders, I have collected a few beautiful outfits for my kids. P6Here they are my dolls. Nevertheless, I want to tell you about the material from which they are made. They are made of celluloid.

Celluloid – one of the first synthetic plastics ever created by man, and that in itself is remarkable.P4

He has another name, common among the fans and collectors. It is called Hard plastic. When celluloid was invented and gained popularity, and it was in the 1870s, almost all the dolls were breakable and fragile – bisque, papier-mache and wax, all these materials were easily breakable. It is therefore not surprising that the doll companies have started to experiment with celluloid rather quickly after its occurrence. By the early 1900 s celluloid dolls were already numerous, as celluloid is easily molded and inexpensive to manufacture. This plastic created on the basis of wood products that includes cellulose nitrate and camphor. First established in 1863, it has become a popular material for the manufacture of such items as decorations and dolls. The main period of production falls.

This plastic created on the basis of wood products that includes cellulose nitrate and camphor. First established in 1863, it has become a popular material for the manufacture of such items as decorations and dolls. The main period of production falls in the 1870-1930 years. Celluloid, however, was not the perfect plastic, since it was flammable and easily spoiled when exposed to moisture and were prone to cracking and yellowing.Doll celluloid very diverse: the size can vary from 3-5 cm to meters for large Japanese celluloid baby dolls. However, the majority of dolls are usually not too large because of the lightness and fragility of the plastic. And because of their small size, they have become so popular among fans of Dollhouse.P3

Hundreds of different companies have produced celluloid dolls in different countries – in Germany, France, Italy, Japan, USA and others. Germany began to produce them before anyone else, followed by USA and Japan. Well-known company for the production of celluloid dolls includes Rheinische Gummi und Celluloid Fabrik Co. (Germany, the sign of the turtle), Petitcolin (France) and Irwin (USA).  This the puppet company you see in the photo, made in Germany, and is marked ES.
