    Baby Sasha doll is also very collectible the 2nd doll
    Sasha dolls were created by a Swiss artist called Sasha Morgenthaler. Born in 1893, she led the most extraordinary life. Within her lifetime she was an artist, toy-maker, wife and mother: and also trained to be a midwife. She first began making dolls in her forties. Her first dolls were called studio dolls, and were produced from 1942-1975. These dolls were handmade and expensive to buy. Sasha's hopes for all children to be able to have access to her dolls resulted in them being produced in series. On the 11th May 1964 Puppenfabrik Hans Gotz were granted a licence to produce Sasha dolls in series. The first Sasha dolls went on sale in all Migros stores (Switzerland) on 8th October 1965. The English Stockport Sasha was initially made by Frido Limited in 1965 and from January 1970 by Trendon Limited and from September 1984 Sasha Dolls Limited became the selling company until 1986 when the factory closed.
