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

Welcome to Russian Banya!

Hello, my dear readers. With light steam to You! Sure that my greeting surprised you)
But that’s what they say welcome the man who just came out of the Banya! ( Bath)original (1)

Russian Banya – those words that sound when referring to the Russian tradition. Surely you have heard this word when referring to Russia. I will tell you about one of our traditions.

Our Russian bath is a national phenomenon and our historical tradition. It is both a construction for performing hygiene procedures and therapeutic in most diseases.zdorovie

Bath in the life of the Russian people at the time served several functions. It was washed and warmed himself. Taking treatments, people became more healthy. In addition, Banya in human life is played and social role. To her, visiting her friends, was like a purification ritual combines not only the body but the soul. A source of heat served flat stones that were stacked on the hearth in the form of a dome. The stones glowed, and they were used for heating water and for heating the room.c6e47c9927ce3dfac0e0ae21d2a77556

To maintain temperature, hot stones doused with water and herbal infusions, which created the so-called “light steam”. Its benefit lies in the fact that the man was slowly heated, and then, after rushing up the ferry climbed to the top shelf. Inhalation of “light steam” with herbs created the effect of inhalation and massage with a broom, broke up the blood and brought sickness. After such a hearty massage with a broom, it is necessary to plunge into the cold water. From a medical point of view, it is very useful for the body.Веник-на-спинеbanya-v-gorah-1024x683banya

The construction of the sauna begins with a careful selection. A classic Russian Banya is a small hut on the edge of a lake or river, made of logs of pine trees.

It consists of two rooms: the changing room and the steam room, which concurrently was washing compartment. In the dressing room set shop and a clothes hanger, as the waiting room plays the role of locker rooms and rest rooms.ac15f86d37c941998732a72c66f4539binterjer_bani

The dressing room is separated from the steam room by a wooden partition with a tightly fitted door. About the furnace, usually a small window that is not only a source of light,  but the vent. The third part of the classic sauna Russian Banya is a wood-burning stove, near which are placed a tub of water. In the steam room mandatory shelf, which in fact is the process of taking bath procedures.4bed19bb

Typically, the process of evaporation takes 4-5 hours. You might ask why so long?
My husband every Thursday goes to the bath. I repeat, it is a TRADITION. Let’s call it a Men’s Club. They are steamed, massaged each other with brooms made of birch branches, and then communicate to their male subjects. And as you know, this all can’t happen fast)))IMG_3449

Do you remember this photo from my previous post? As in the bath very high temperature, it is necessary to protect the head. It is for this purpose that such caps. They are made from felt and have a different shape. For every taste and style. That’s the Budyonovka ‘ helmet of the early 20th century. This form of bath hats the most popular among our experienced men’s bath attendants.

The best gift for a lover of baths.

After taking bath procedures, traditional kvas or tea.kvas Cannot eat much and of course, you cannot drink strong beverages.
After this procedure, you are sure to feel born again.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

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
I too, can say, made my contribution to the adoration of cats) Here are two of my hits on this topic)

“Fashion verdict”

On Russian television, there is a project called “Fashion verdict”. A very popular program. The essence of this transmission is that the program invites the woman. Who does not know how to dress or do not know how to combine clothes. One leading it protects and finds many reasons why she does this. Second leading, on the contrary, criticizes a woman and advises how to properly dress. The chief judge is either known to the designer or, as is now well-known fashion historian Alexander Vasiliev. The first part of the program devoted to the hearing of the defendant and the Prosecutor. In the second part, the woman returned to the shop and she chooses three outfits. Invited to the famous person commented on the selection of participants. In the third part of the program, the stylists work with the participant and to your taste decorate it. The audience in the Studio at the end of program vote, or the choice of the heroine of the program or select stylists.
Here and planned to do something similar)

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.

Project for Julia

Continue to test the yarn Nirvana. For a new project, I chose shades of green and light beige color. The dress was conceived as an outfit for Julia to autumn period, with long sleeves and floral patterns. For flowers, I chose a dark shade of dusty rose. For the petals of pale green edging and part of the ornament of the marsh shade. I came up with to complement the dress a small headband with flowers and decorate them the hair of my doll.creativhook AG mini
