I have lots to share with you - my own FAO Schwarz mystery house, miniature chair kits from Swedish museums, antique dollhouse furniture, and much more. But, at present I am incapacitated.
I took a header off my bicycle on the way to work a couple of weeks ago and broke my wrist.
Two days ago I had surgery on my wrist. This impedes my ability to take pictures and post blog entries.
But, as I wanted to share these dolls with you, I took pictures with my iPhone - one-handed - and I am typing slowly with my left hand. Please excuse typos, etc.
All the dolls have cloth bodies and painted black boots. They are all ready to be dressed by the little mistress of their miniature abode.
Grandpa is the tallest of the family at 5.5 inches.
Although, we could also assume the older couple are the parents and the others are assorted children and servants - or vice versa.
Does anyone know whether these are dolls by Kestner, or what years they would have been sold?
Any comments about these dolls is welcomed. I would love to identify them.
I don't know whether the holes were used to fasten the board into a presentation box, or to hang it on a display wall. Let me know if you know anything about them.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this family as much as I enjoyed sharing them.
