I got lucky once more Manikin! The head is detached, but she is still beautiful! What lovely teeth she has! They look nicer than mine, and my family used to own a tooth factory. And the bonus was the extra eye in bottom of box (just a little creepy) If you need a blue eye, let me know...I will send to you. is she from the early 30's? in box were some papers with Oct 24, 1931.

Mystery Solved

    Now you have me curious, I want to see her teeth!
    Does she have a name?

    hotkitties, I took better photo, so you can see her Three Perfect Teeth. It was kinda tricky, in order to see them, you need to look up and into her mouth. The more I look at this doll, the more familiar she is to me, I'm pretty sure she has a twin sister that is on a shelf at my Mom's house, I'll put a photo of her up also. I never really appreciated the detail and beauty involved in these dolls. Its amazing. Thanks-For Comments :)

    OOOPS...Nope, she is not identical, my mistake! She just looks so familiar, but I've never seen her before, this box has been packed away for 80 YEARS! Holy Cow!!! That is a long time! Thats twice as long as I've been alive!

  5. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago

    The dolle in beige onsie by the hummel looks like a flapper doll . I hope she is ! I will know when you get me numbers and marks on back of heads :-)
  8. hotkitties, 6 years ago
    Thanks! Your power of suggestion made me so curious! She is cute, I like her!!

    Hi Manikin! I took photo of Back of her head, I hope it is clear, Looks like letter,"K" and"R" with two triangles in middle.
    The doll in last photo is at my Mom's house, & I'm too afraid to even touch her, when I'm feeling brave and sneaky some day I'll take a closer look at her!
    Thank You for info, I am very grateful that you are so kind! You are wonderful!

    She is what we call a K star R doll I can't see if she has any numbers on head also how tall is she ? This company was known for charcter dolls and they command high prices yours is what we call a dolly face . She still has a very good value !
    The Kämmer & Reinhardt doll company was formed ca. 1886-1932 in Waltershausen, Thuringia, Germany by Ernst Kammer and Franz Reinhardt
    Here is an example of a very small one Beaux . Love her and all her clothes a real treasure .

    There may have been a number on back of neck in spot where she is broken, it looks like a line, but I can't make out what it would have been, if there even was anything even marked there. She is 8.5 inches tall.
    Wow, Manikin! I am amazed at price of these dolls!
  13. BeauxPurdy BeauxPurdy, 6 years ago
    Thank-You Bellin!

    You have been lucky with your finds not all dolls have the value of so many of yours ! I took a guess she was not real tall , The chip on base of head socket will depreciate her value a bit , She is easily restrung by someone that knows how to do it . We re string dolls a lot but best to leave her head off for now as long as they stay together and that she has a wardrobe of clothes males her even more special ! Beautiful Beaux and keep looking :-)

    Beaux I believe she is solved she is a KstarR doll circa 1900-up to 1930 but I lean toward 1900 . Open shut eyes . Your Moms has stationary eyes and I believe her to be a flapper German doll same age .
