I am a vintage toy cars collector, and when i bought some vintage toys from an old stock from a closed shop of over 35 years!. while I was clearing the lot i found this rare dealer/trade brown box filled with these hard plastic dolls. I have no info about them but they are from the 50's, and they come from West Germany. any info will be great.

    Hi your plastic or celluloid dolls would have been made in West Germany if that is what they are marked and shipped like this to USA, and a few other countries where they would be painted by company that bought them. Often dressed in Ethnic clothes . They were inexpensive dolls and could be dressed by a Mom some were sold nude . A photo of their marking would help . They are a novelty doll or dollhouse type doll . They are not valued high in doll collecting world but would be unique if they are in original box and it is marked so verify it is original box , does it say anything on it ?

    thank you so much for the input, the trade box is just a plain box with stamping on it or the dolls, it came with other US zone west germany toys I got and the old store owner (now deceased at the age of 92) told me then that these also from west Germany. :)

    thank you , I like the idea that they come in a dealer/trade box :), I am testing them on the auction site and want to see how collectors respond. I found another box of the same dolls in my lot!!!
