Charleen Kinser "sweetcakes" 1991 "forever Toys" Leather/glasseyes Signed:
I am the designated " Seller" for the family and the neighborhood; and I LOVE it!!! I get to see SO many wonderful and unusual items!!!!!
For those of you who have followed my listings, I am now selling for a Brother and Sister who have passed away and left a HOUSE FULL of VINTAGE and NEW!!! items to a friend who must downsize all these items. ALL categories - SO interesting and unbelievable!!!!***I just found FIVE MORE "CHARLEEN KINSER DESIGNS" Figures!!!!!!!! I had a personal connection with the "TOADS"; but I am "in love" with SWEETCAKES!!!! She is SO huggable! You just want to speak to her and keep her near you. This Lady Gnome is signed by Charleen Kinser on her left ear flap :"1989 C KINSER 160 XO CHARLEEN KINSER 10-8-1991"I can see why Charleen Kinser wrote "XO" - how could you not with this lovey!!!!She has NEVER been displayed or "played-with"; but stored in a plastic bag. She is in near MINT Condition EXCEPT for a small spot on left arm and right arm (looks like where someone would pick her up by the arms). In a certain light you can see slight light marks on her apron pocket - to the naked eye it appears perfect.
The attached wooden spoon is marked "Made in U.S. Zone-Germany" !!!!
She has her "CHARLEEN KINSER DESIGNS FOREVER TOYS" "Romance Booklet" with tons of information. ALSO included are a RECIPE CARD and a SPECIAL FOLDER from MAGGIE E. KINSER.She is about 19" tall with colorful. fluttery wings on her back. Her head is moveable and her legs are jointed.How can you go through life without this wonderful addition to your life????? LOL!!!!Information from the artist's website about fabric and care.
Our leather creatures, including, Gnome Tom Griswold (deerskin), Sweetcakes and the trolls, and all toads and frog (pigskin), should not be cleaned. The best treatment for their "skin" is to be handled a lot, as you would a wallet! If they dry out with age, a product we believe is called Apple Polishes will help refurbish them. Dot Com will be glad to send you a tiny sample tube (while they last), if you'll give her your snail mail address.Because of the small pieces and detail of all the fabrics, this Doll is meant as a collectible and NOT for young children (I would say not under 5 years of age).
