..... If you have been watching our sales you recently saw a selection of rare antique French and German Dolls. These dolls were part of an amazing lifetime collection, started in the early 20th century. Tonight and over the next few days we will be listing another selection of important and rare dolls from this amazing collection. There are French Fashion Dolls, Rare German Character Dolls, American Folk Art Dolls and several surprises. With very few exceptions, every doll is in wonderful original condition and the majority comes with their original clothing. We will be listing each doll separately and without any reserve. We also will unconditionally guarantee that the high buyer will be more than satisfied with the quality, condition, age and authenticity of each doll or we will return all their money.
...... After a short search on the net I found that this 19th century Uncle Sam Doll is from a Portrait Series by the German Doll Company, “Cuno & Otto Dressel.” It was made during the late 19th century and he measures 12 ½” tall, not counting his original felt top hat. The body is made from both composition with wood limbs. We were able to remove most of the original clothing, but the shirt is sewn on and the silk tie holding the collar is too delicate to remove. You can see some paint loss to the wood part of the legs, but the composition hands and feet are perfect. Uncle Sam has a wonderful character face with deep furrows accented with fine painted lines around his mouth, eyes and forehead. He has a gray mohair wig and matching goatee, which are original. The wig is definitelyoriginal, but doesn't seem to fit properly. In the close-up photographs of the back of the head you can see a fine line just to the left of the S1 marking. This not a crack and does not go through to the inside. Also the color goes into the line. This has to be a factory flaw, and we guarantee it is not a damage. The factory set eye has come loose, but the plaster is still perfect and they will be very easy to reset. In the last photograph you can see a pencil pointing to a very tiny fleck to the edge of the left eye socket. There are no other problems or any restorations. Uncle Sam is wearing a blue felt cut away coat, a blue background cotton vest with white stars, a red and white striped cotton trousers and with black stockings with black leatherette shoes & buckles plus a small gold watch. His felt top hat has red, white and blue hat band. There is some fading to the colors of this original clothing, but overall everything is perfect and clean. ... Examples of Cuno & Otto Dressel, Portrait Series Dolls are rare and to find an Uncle Sam in all original condition is very rare. Even so, just like every rare doll from this life-time collection he is listed without any reserve. ... Good Luck!
