Variety Of Antique Dolls Now Available

 I currently have a variety of antique dolls available on KT Miniatures and thought I would show you a selection on here.

This first doll is extremely old and believed to be late Victorian. She has a china head plus bisque arms and legs, the rest of her body is made from stuffed material. Her clothes are believed to be original and although she is a little playworn, she is still exquisite. She measures 5" in height and would look wonderful in an old dolls house. It is refreshing to have the whole doll as more often than not I end up with just the head or maybe an occasional limb from this type of doll!

There are also two bisque Kewpie type dolls, both identical, each complete with their own nursery bed and are being sold separately. They are real cuties measuring just 2 1/2" in height and are believed to be either German or Japanese, dating from c1930s. Both are a little playworn and a tad grubby but generally are in good condition.
This particular German bisque doll is one of my all time favourites and she is in an excellent played with condition, c1920s/1930s.  As you can see she is dressed as a maid, her clothes being original and she has gorgeous painted features including her little shoes and bobbed hair. She measures 3 1/4" in height. Isn't she lovely? I am so torn to let her go but already have three in my little 30's Hobbies House so go she must as it is becoming rather crowded in there!

There are other vintage dolls including a couple of little Grecons currently for sale.
