Meet Mindolton's latest couple
This is a mixed marriage. Mrs Meyer-Caco is an Erna Meyer doll from the late 1940's- early 1950's.The Erna Meyer dolls were taller then. They were made in 1:10 scale. She is about 6.75" tall. She has a stockinette face, and fabric feet. One of her stockings is in bad shape. Whether it has disintegrated due to age or been attached by moths, I don't know. But she is in mint condition except for the stocking.
Mr. Meyer-Caco doesn't mind that she is taller than he. In fact, he is very proud of his Junoesque wife.
Mr. Meyer-Caco is a Caco doll from the same period. He has a composition molded face and metal feet. He is about 6" tall.
Both dolls were made in Germany and wear felt hats and coats.
A mixed marriage in the dollhouse world isn't unusual, but it happens less often than one would think.
As soon as they laid eyes on each other they knew it was meant to be. How often does your outfit completely compliment your mates? It was love at first sight.
