Vintage German Doll Head
Papier-Mâché ~ 3-1/4" ht.
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 paper mache doll head with flared neck is made from two pieces of molded, pressed cardboard. Brown hair and pink cheeks are airbrushed, while the eyebrows, lips and nostrils were painted by hand. Blue eyes are printed transfer decals. Limited quantities.
Sold as one vintage doll head.
