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

“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.

Crimson fashion show

Today my story will be devoted to the Nirvana from the Italian yarn manufacturer Filatura di Crosa and dresses for dolls. As I wrote before, for my works I use only very high-quality yarn and often produced in Italy. Soft and thin, it fits perfectly for knitting the smallest dolls. The composition of this yarn contains Merino wool, which is considered the best material in the world.Yarn Nirvana has a wonderful feature — it absolutely does not irritate the skin, so is perfect for creating baby things. Also, 77e5942697d1af20b114bd2b9d7e2ebdit is possible to knit products for Allergy sufferers and people with sensitive skin. In addition, the yarn is Filatura di Crosa Nirvana has excellent thermostatic properties and elasticity, so stuff from it for many years do not lose their properties and retain an attractive appearance. It is also worth noting that, according to experts, products made from Merino wool have a positive influence on health, realizing a micro-massage the body and thereby improving circulation. Care, too, such things will not cause you trouble. Wash this yarn in warm soapy water, wring out in a towel and then dried in the unfolded form. Full description

Full description
Roll length: 340 m;
Weight: 25 g;
Material: 100% Merino wool;
Needle Size: No. 2,0-2,5; ( but I prefer No. 0.6 – 1.0)
Knitting density: 10×10 cm – 34 loops 38 series  ( In my case, 70 loops 100 series.)

Some fans and collectors of dolls like when their dolls dressed in the same dress. I heard this opinion from my clients. And since dolls are different in size, the dress can be linked with small changes, but stick to a single style. As decoration, you can use miniature embroidery or lace, small decorative items ( I have the items for jewelry making) and crochet flowers. And believe me, your dolls are amazingly beautiful, even if the color of the dresses they match.
So, I chose to create this mini collection Pink color yarn Nirvana. As my models represented: American girl mini Julia Kelly by Mattel and Heidi Ott Toddler. All the attention is on the screen.

New miniature collection

Very soon my little puppet shop will be the newest stunning collection of petite dresses for smaller dolls with a size of 2 inches.mini1012
At the core of this collection is the combination of high-quality wool with embroidery silk.ы21
I like the combination of wool and lustrous silk. Floral embroidery seems more voluminous and contrasts its brilliance with a matte finish wool fabric.1008

The very yarn for knitting very fine and silky, which allows you to work with a very fine crochet. I haven’t written that almost all the work to crochet 0.45 mm.
For those who prefer canvas, crochet, fabric knitted using, I can say that it is not worse. Perhaps it is not light and airy, but it keeps the shape and allows you to do the embroidery is quite diverse.
For the embroidery, I used silk thread companies, Gutterman and Madeira. The color palette of these brands is very wide. That allows you to make one flower a few shades.
In this collection, I used micro beads of gold color. He’s like a little the heart of the flowers. Some embroidery reminiscent of a familiar pattern of Zhostovo.

Doll story

Heidi Ott miniature dolls

Thanks to my favorite clients, I’m becoming a collector of small dolls. Very often I am asked to associate dresses for dolls, Heidi Ott.

Baby doll 2 inches
a8cc3d
Children doll 4 inches

And as I wrote in my many posts, I want to make the outfits fit the dolls perfectly. For this reason, I often complete my collection with dolls. No exception and this girl.
She came to me recently and I immediately fell in love with her. bl6

A little bit of information, I think it will be interesting to learn about this line of Dollhouse miniatures. Doll Heidi Ott (Heidi Ott dolls) is widely known among collectors of the world.
They are made specifically for miniature doll houses the most popular 1:12 scale, but differ from other such dolls are not only incredibly fine workmanship of the details, and in some cases, and mobility comparable dolls 1:6. These dolls are characterized by a high artistic level.
Previously, I focused only on the photos and it was difficult for me to imagine this miracle.0572

 

Little of this doll family is less than two inches. The next size 2.5 inches. This series is called a Toddler That’s just such a baby and settled in my doll house. Heidi Ott (Heidi Ott) was born in Central Switzerland.
Her first doll she made for her daughter in 1970-ies. There are different interpretations of different sources, but more likely the beginning of the seventies.
Dolls “miniature series” she started doing in the 1990s. The dolls are so beautiful that they attract children as well as adults.
In addition to miniatures, Heidi Ott also produces large dolls 18″, the series is called “Loyal Friends”, this doll with a soft body. Subsequently, the books were written, the protagonists of which were these dolls. It is already known doll became heroes of books, books released later. This is a rare case, more often the opposite — doll repeat the famous book’s characters. The dolls were sold Target stores in the late 1990s. Later, these dolls were sold under the name “Students,” and later, “the Doll Games.” Since 2004, Heidi Ott no longer sells this type of doll, focusing instead on their wide range of miniatures. In particular, she is engaged and clothes for their dolls.
I want to add a little of your creativity in outfits for these wonderful dolls.ds5

Miniature doll 1:12 are overwhelmed by the large craftsmanship and have fans both among children and among adult collectors. The doll lady and man are fully articulated. This doll consists of 34 body parts which are assembled manually. The body has 14 movable joints. Face doll Heidi Ott hand painted. Tiny hands and feet made with the same craftsmanship, even small dolls. They are made of vinyl and some dolls from quality fabrics, and their strength is not enough for one generation of collectors. Each doll is unique. Skilled craftsmen and hours of hard work to create this beautiful doll. Face doll Heidi Ott have a lot of small touches and details, and thus she looks more natural. Their hairstyles are also unique and cute.Wigs, too, does this stunning mistress.0594

Doll by Heidi Ott there are already quite a long time, and now grandmother bought for my granddaughter’s new characters for a doll’s house — the grandmother who started the family collection many years ago. New various outfits, wigs transform the familiar molds for making flowers, and buy new characters is an exciting thing for the whole family.
