A SUPER MAX
HANDWERCK. SUCH A SWEET DOLL AT A VERY SPECIAL
Well, I shall
first of all have to admit to having a special fondness
for these very sweet dolls. I was lucky enough to
inherit two dolls from Great Aunts, and one was a Max
Handwerck. She is in fact very similar to this
little girl. They are not common dolls, and whilst
I suppose relatively simple dolls in their design, they
do have a special look. Their heads have a
distinctive shape, quite slim and with a particular cut
to their eyes.
This dear doll is in super condition, her head is
perfect with no cracks, chips or restoration and her
body is in similarly fine condition. She was
obviously cherished by her original owner. She
measures about 17.5 inches tall. She is of course
on a fully jointed body, which retains it`s sheen.
She has one tiny little white spot to her right cheek
which would have been done just before firing.
Nothing much at all, but mentioned for accuracy.
She would date from around 1905.

Her wig is amazing with very thick
mohair, of course original to her, as is the little bow
in her hair. Her dress is made from a very fine woollen
material, and is beautifully made, with
amazingly fine stitches throughout and smocking to the
yoke. She has a little matching bag which is
suspended from her waist. She also has a blue hand
knitted vest, drawers, a woollen half petticoat and a
cotton half petticoat on top of that. Her lovely
hat just frames her face and finishes her "look"nicely. Her brown
shoes and socks suit her so well, but are not original
to her. She has brown sleep eyes, open mouth with
upper teeth, and her pretty face is nicely painted.
She has finely painted feathered eyebrows. This
doll is being offered at a particularly good price, so
do not delay if you like dolls with very little playwear
and in such overall super condition. You
will notice below one photo showing the doll with two
collections of glass charms - these are NOT sold with
her, but are available separately on my website in the
Minatures and Accessories section if you wish to take a
look! Layaway is possible on most dolls. Do ask if
you have any queries.
