  1. I am not 100 percent sure it is Spelter since it literaly weighs around 80 to 100 pounds. Ron
  2. Thanks for being so understanding. I appreciate your honesty. You are right. It is experiences like that that keep us hunting. I do have some interesting Ming dynasty roof tiles
  3. There is light green behind the ears of the 1966 one. Can I ask qhere that comes from?
  4. The one that says Midge on her backside says she is 1968 The other has no name and says 1966
  5. Yes I think your right. I do now see a faint maker mark on one that says China. As Stillwater said the Chinese were masters of Porcelain so why do you think these pieces were done so poorly. I see p...
  6. I can not move her clothes to see. But it is amazing to see the handiwork that went into dolls years ago compared to today. Even Barbie dolls have lost much of their artistic touch although the tech...
  7. Im sorry but I have to disagree. Modern pieces were made by machine and are flawless. Stamps have been used for centuries. Signs of flaws are a sign of true antiques. And in light if the story I told...
  8. Sorry didnt see this message. I pushed on the stomach it didnt move. I did find a small hole where I assume she would wet after drinking. Ron
  9. What do you think that hole in the back is? It looks like a plug for a speaker or some other device. Any ideas? Ron
  10. Looks like 60D-E underneath the Uneeda Doll makers mark
  11. I love the folk art feeling of it. Ron
  12. Yes very skillfully painted. The fabric is also unusual. Looks like fabric taken from actual clothes.
  13. Any idea how old they are? I cant find anything like them online. Their insides are a metal liner. I wonder if this is the poor mans sake cup since it isnt porcelain.
  14. I did not see all this information until recently. You are a great teacher. Therd must be a doll museum somewhere in this city. I know there is a doll hospital.
  15. I dont know much about Native American art but I agree it does seem like a nice art work. Ron
  16. I looked at Hoglundand it is very similar but his designs appear to be more refined. This piece seems to have the skill of a Hoglund but the crudeness of a folk art piece. Many artists including myse...
  17. Thats interesting As an artist I can see the skill that went into the design and the creativity of the piece similar to the appearance of some antique Chinese pottery where the artist made ut appead...
  18. Thanks much. My wife told me it was African but I didnt believe it. Ron
  19. Thank you. I am glad that we did isolate her away from the other dolls since I have found that a number of the are actually somewhat collectable. I did not post the name brand ones because I thought i...
  20. By the way the only make I s mark I can find is the number 200. It has a mechanism system inside that moves everything . The system is metal rods interconnected. The doll smells terribly. The previous...
  21. Wow! I knew she was special. Brings back alot of very early fond memories. I will take a look at the links you provided asap. Thanks again, as always you privide wonderful, interesting and insightful ...
  22. I am very curious about the history. I assumed that during that era things were more functional so I am wondering what the purpose would be of coupling vases with a jar. Ron
  23. I looked closely and I do see black specks in the face under a magnifying glass but the clothes look so new how can they possibly be 100 years old?
  24. I will try to look more carefuly
  25. Thanks for the education. I see that there is a good deal to learn. I love the look of your doll. I hope to find an original one day. My suster in law has been a doll collector for some time thinks ...
  26. Thanks again. I was asking because the woman I bought the doll from thought that it was a famous doll maker, or at least well known. By the way do they still have doll making classes. I am an art tea...
  27. Thats amazing. As an art educator this is fascinating. I will post the other doll I bought soon. Ron
  28. Manikin, I was curious after reading the fascinating story of Kathe Kruse what year this doll might be. Do you have any ideas?
  29. I did inspect the neck and you are 100% right it is a Hummel. I didnt know they made dolls. There is some other kinds of markings besides Hummel. If you would like to see them I will photo them for y...
  30. Manikin, a million thanks. I purchased this doll simply because I liked it. I was sure it was valuable but I had no idea it was really that rare and had such a great history. I purchased two other dol...
