Description:
Very rare and Käthe Kruse type I Toddler Doll with original clothing, wrist tag and cardboard box.

Early version with three vertically running seams on the back of back, delicately oil-painted facial features, closed mouth with pouty expression, rosy cheeks, painted blue eyes and dark brown brush-stroked hair.

Hard stuffed muslin medium-hips model body with eight panels on torso, five panels on legs, stitched hands with separate attached thumbs, stitch jointed arms and disc jointed legs. "Käthe Kruse // 86162" stamped on left foot, "Made in Germany" stamped on right foot, plus unreadable pencil handwriting on both feet.


He is dressed in his complete factory original boy outfit with red felt vest with metal buttons, white cotton shirt with embroidered trim, red and black checkered short pants with red crochet suspenders, beige wool knit leg warmers and black felt hat with matching shoes, original string tag on wrist.

Hi is in his maker's paper-lined cardboard box with rectangular label on one of the ends. Made in Germany by Käthe Kruse, circa 1915-1920s.


Dimensions:

17 inches (43 cm) tall.


Condition:

Slightly, not noticeable worn/chipped paint to right side of forehead, next to right eye, left side of mouth, behind the ears and worn paint to upper lip (see pictures from #2 to #7). Very clean muslin body a bit soiled around the knees (between the short pants hem and top of leg warmers). There are a couple of tiny holes to the shirt sleeves (see picture #16) and a few mended holes to the back of vest (see picture #9.) Somewhat darkened and soiled box. Otherwise, excellent to near mint overall condition.


Very charming and desirable early Käthe-Kruse-Doll that comes from a non-smoking and pet-free home.
