Near mint, all original, and in the box marked " Kathe Kruse  Original Gekleidet MADE IN US ZONE GERMANY "  Deutsche Kind " model boy, 18" ( 46cm ), with synthetic head, cloth body, wearing original clothing and stamped on right foot " Kathe Kruse " and on the left " 6. Mrz 1958 made in Germany US Zone ". He is super clean with bright facial coloring. The only minor issue is that one box lid corner has a slight tear in the seam but nothing is missing. Not the earliest of all Kruse doll but nevertheless now almost 60 years old and an excellent example of this era which attempted to continue on in  the traditional " Deutsche Kind "-type style dolls from the 1930's but still adapting to the materials currently available ( and at the time probably considered and " improvement " ) at time of manufacture. ...........................US$ 650.

16" ( 40 cm ) all celluloid doll in near pristine condition by Kathe Kruse in original box marked " Kathe Kruse Original Gekleidet MADE IN US ZONE GERMANY ". She has a swivel head with solid dome and glued on elaborate curly human hair wig with cloth flower garland, and all original costume and shoes. On the back of the torso there are three dimensional embossed markings including a " turtle within a diamond shaped frame " ( schildkrot ) , a " Kathe Kruse " marking in the form of a signature " and a " T 40 " , perhaps indication the size in centimeters. Dangling from the left wrist is a yellow round paper swing tag reading " Eine Schildkrot- Pupppe " modell Kathe Kruse ( signature ) , and with the turtle/schildkrot logo . We removed the right shoe and sock to see if any marking existed on the sole of the foot but there is none. Due to the fragile nature of both the doll and the clothing we do not wish to remove anything else but we have  "prodded and probed " and have found no damage and the doll is being sold with that guarantee. ..............................................US$ 395.

Unique jointed wooden folk art toy measuring 14" ( 35cm ) representing a black dancer, sometimes referred to in their time as a " jigger". Although certainly not politically correct by today's standards there are various types of other toys and figures in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries with packing cartons often called " Jolly Jigger " or of similar nomenclature. The figure has a black painted head and torso with carved features and intaglio eyes and there are joints at the shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, and ankles allowing for significant and rapid movement when the toy is shaken or moved. Attached to the back of the torso is a curved wooden handle made of polished wood measuring about 11" ( 28cm ) long. Although not a traditional puppet or marionette, the extension could have possibly served to although the handler to hide behind a screen or cloth as one would when giving a puppet show. The well detailed figure is clothed in period sewn-on fabrics and the cap is glued over top of the cone shaped wooden head of the man. An unusual and lovely piece for the collector of " folky " items! US$ 950..

8" (20 cm) kneeling figure of young nude woman signed on base with a green stamp (under glaze) of a crown over a W and "1764" and an incised mark (under glaze) of "HB" and "1891". The figure itself is a porcelain figure with mate painted finish whereas the white "cloth" under her and between her knees is a high glaze. Most likely from the German firm of William Goebel from the late 1930's. Perfect, with no damage or restorations. US$ 350.
