Antiquemys…
(17 items)

I posted several pictures of dolls found in my Aunt's home after she passed away. I have no information about any of the dolls I am posting but, have been asked to provide a close up picture of their face along with a picture of the back of their neck. I would be grateful for any information involving their origin and value. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

    because of damage she has lost most of her value . A crack or chip in head is severe to a collector . Would be good for parts only :-(
    The Kämmer & Reinhardt doll company was formed ca. 1886-1932 in Waltershausen, Thuringia, Germany by Ernst Kämmer and Franz Reinhardt. Early K & R dolls were made of wax. K & R bisque doll heads and bodies were designed by Kämmer & Reinhardt, but most of the heads were manufactured by Simon & Halbig (which is why many dolls have both companies mark; K & R and S & H), as K & R did not have their own porcelain factory

    I am having a hard time seeing quality of painting and bisque and not sure these are all true antiques but reproductions . I can tell for sure that bodies on many are either newer or remade so when I see that I question if doll is true antique . They maybe but I need a much clearer photo .

    I amm thinking she is a repro also . a big clue is crack is to clean it would have dirt in it and eyebrows again don't look right
