VINTAGE OOP 1981
THE COLLECTOR’S DIGEST OF GERMAN CHARACTER DOLLS
by Robert and Karin MacDowell
Hobby House Press, Inc.
Maryland, 1981.


Many color and many more black-and-white photographs~ this early our-of-print book is an invaluable identification guide to antique German character dolls including information on marks. .

Considering the scarcity of fine authentic examples of antique dolls
of all types, and especially the lack of concise photographic material,
a book of this type is an indispensable reference.
Among the dolls illustrated, including marks, are the following:
1- Franz Schmidt & Co.
2- Gebruder Heubach
3- Heubach/Koppelsdorf
4- Kammer & Reinhardt
5- J.D. Kestner
6- Armand Marseille
7- Simon & Halbig
8- Kathe Kruse
9- Baby Phyllis
10-Carl Bergner
11-Lori
12-Margarete Steiff
13-Revalo
14-Gertrude Huebach
15-Cuno & Otto Dressel
16-Brune Schmidt
and many more.
Most of the dolls included are shown fully dressed in their original clothes, also undressed for viewing body construction.
Close-ups of the faces illustrate detailed modeling and painting. Remarkable close-up shots of the marks and almost every doll is extremely valuable.
In addition, in many cases the marks have been drawn to further facilitate identification.
This is a must-buy book for the serious collector, dealer, or historian of antique vintage dolls.
