Hard to find at all and especially as a complete pair are these 18 1/2" ( 47 cm ) cloth Uncle Wiggly and Nurse Jane Fuzzy Wuzzy. Also a huge benefit is they both still have their original factory paper swing tag identifiers reading" A Georgene Product " Nurse Jane Fuzzy Wuzzy " on one, and of course, " Uncle Wiggly ( Long Ears ) " on the other. The copyright date is 1942. Uncle Wiggly has his top hat ( usually missing ) sewn to his left hand . Both have three dimensional plastic side glancing eyes and all original sewn on clothing made of a variety of felt and cotton fabrics.  Both are in wonderful unplayed-with condition with only a slight bit of surface age dust. Colors are for the most part still vibrant. Quite a find and a must for real life , real time exposure to these memorable childrens stories/cartoons/funny paper characters........................US$ 1,150.

17" ( 43 cm ) Kathe Kruse boy with the "DOLL I" facial style but with slightly narrower face and overall less bulky and more slender body with heavier and darker head and facial painting allowing one to assume is a 1920's doll but from the latter half of the decade. He has a toddler -type body with wide hips and diagonal joints, as well as one piece arms and hands. The plaid cotton roper suit with waist belt and red trim is period clothing as are the socks and leather shoes impressed on the soles " made in Germany ". The original paint is overall excellent with only a tiny loss on the head seam and a few teeny specks elsewhere on the hair. There is a signature on the left foot " Kathe Kruse 991932 ".  A very nice doll with a slightly different appearance and presentation!.........................................US$ 1,800.

Beautiful 20 " (51 cm )  Kathe Kruse " Deutsche Kind " girl with narrow face with pensive look, molded and painted facial features, and wearing a light brown human hair wig with center part with braids tied on each side of the head. She has a cloth body with one piece arms and hands, a solid torso with legs attached at hips by diagonal joints, however the body on this type of doll is more slender that found on the " DOLL I" 's perhaps portraying a slightly or and mature child. She wears an original above- the- knee one piece dress with textured white cotton on top and a see-through pink organdy skirt and wide collar. The socks are white ribbed cotton and the shoes white leather .  Unfortunately she lacks undergarments, but otherwise, is a very nice doll and ready to display. ....................US$ 1,750.

Unusual 16" ( 41cm ) Lenci girl with brown painted side glancing eyes, blond mohair wig  with long curls, with pensive expression and unique costume.  She wears and orange felt skirt and paid silk scarf, but the unusual aspect is the stiff black oilcloth raingear consisting of a knee length slicker and matching galoshes and hat. In addition, sewn to the back of the skirt underneath the coat are the original square paper Lenci tag as well as a black cloth tag reading " Ars Lenci " . The face and legs are in very clean condition with only the most minor surface dust and/or fading. The coat does have one minor horizontal split in front at the bottom with  a few ragged edges at the bottom of the coat. Overall a very nice and certainly rare piece!........................................... US$ 750.
