Vintage Papier-Mâché Doll Head
Authentic Old Cardboard Doll Head
Made in Germany in the 1930's
Purchased from a traditional toy maker in Sonneberg, Germany back in 1991, these old stock treasures have been stored in our attic ever since! Just after the reunification of Germany, we drove north from Coburg into the former East Germany to visit Sonneberg, which was the toy capital of the world in the early 20th century, and is still an important center of the toy trade and production. More than 80 years old, these heads may show slight signs of scuffing, but are otherwise in wonderful condition.
This small papier-mâché doll head with flared neck is made from two pieces of molded cardboard. Featuring blushed pink cheeks and brown hair, the lips, eyebrows and nostrils were all painted by hand. Blue eyes are paper transfer decals. Quantities are limited.
Sold as one vintage doll head.
Papier-mâché head is
by 2¼" wide and is 2¼" deep.
