A GORGEOUS KONIG &
WERNICKE TODDLER GIRL CHARACTER
she absolutely gorgeous? She is one of those dolls
who totally makes a person smile. Konig & Wernicke
dolls do not appear on the market very often - I have
had very few in the many years I have been interested in
dolls. This one is as good as they get! She
is a Konig & Wernicke mould no. 98 and dates from
circa.1910. The head was made for K&W by Hertel
Schwab, who made fine quality heads and were often
mistaken for Kestner heads some years ago. She is extra
special as she is on a good quality toddler body.
These bodies are so much more versatile than a bent limb
body, as the dolls can be posed very easily, sitting or
standing The toddler bodied dolls were obviously a
more expensive line than the bent limb bodied doll.
This body is lovely, with just a little age wear.
The body has just had one finger repaired at some point
in her past. You can see how good the
condition is and the fineness of the quality, from
the body photos below
This little girl measures a perfect
display size - about 14.5 inches. She has sleep
eyes, and a beautifully designed and moulded open mouth
with tongue and two little upper teeth. She is a
lucky girl and retains her original wig and pate.
She has her oilcloth shoes, socks, woollen knickers, a
lovely handmade woollen half slip with herringbone
embroidery around the edge, plus a full length
underskirt and a delightful whitework and lace dress.
The Pink Cheeky in some of these pictures does
not come with the K&W but will
be available shortly in the Bear section of my website. If you have any queries or wish to purchase this
