4 Rare Antique Small Mystery Dolls: Colonial Man Bisque Girl 2 Wooden Miniatures For Sale
Welcome to our sale! Many of you know
us as longtime collectors and sellers of antique and vintage Holiday
memorabilia, paper ephemera, antique dolls and toys, and lovely old china and
glassware. For your consideration, we present a very interesting lot of four small
antique dolls and we welcome information from other collectors about them!
Their makers are a bit of a mystery to us and we have never seen anything like
The largest doll appears to be made from
composition and he has painted shoes, legs and facial features, and he wears
hand-painted glasses. His three-cornered hat has a hook at the top, so perhaps
he was an old ornament. We are unsure of the age of this doll; however, his
original clothclothing is very old but in great condition, although there is some fading on the back. This colonialgentleman has a few
paint rubs, some crackling and he is missing a thumb. He measures 7 ½” tall.
The darling little all-bisque doll has
hand-painted features and molded blonde hair. She is wearing her original
outfit with a cute little red felt hat with its original pom-pom. Her arms and
legs are jointed using metal wires. She has a tiny mark on her face but other
than that there are no conditions issues to report. Not counting her hat she
measures approximately 3” tall.
The slightly taller of the two miniature
wooden dolls is hand-painted and wears her original skirt. This little
hand-carved wooden doll has wired joints at the shoulders and hips. She has
some rubs to her face and neck, and she measures about 2 ¾” tall.
The charming little wooden peasant girl
has hand-painted features and her arms move at the shoulders. She is wearing
her original costume and measures 2 ½” tall. She reminds us very much of wooden
pieces that were made in the Erzgebirge region of Germany.
These dolls were all part of two
collections amassed by two longtime doll collectors. They would be perfect for
the collector of small dolls, character dolls or dollhouseminiatures and would also
look wonderful in the arms of larger bisque-head German or French dolls.
