Condition: generally excellent, bodies are appropriatelystyed but are not original. Comments: Max Handwerck, circa 1916, from a curious and rare series that combined the popular googly phenomena of the era with the WWI historical events; his googly model was issued with a variety of different bisque hats or helmets to indicate the involved nations, in this

case, the United States as Uncle Sam (marked Dep Elite U.S. 1) with sculpted stars and striped hat and brown hair; Germany (marked Dep Elite D. 1) with sculpted green eagle helmet and sculpted light brown hair; Japan (marked Dep Elite J 2/0) with sculpted cap and black hair; and Turkish (marked Dep Elite O.T. 2/0) with curious double face (one with red cap and black hair indicating Eastern allegiance, and one with green brimmed cap and brown hair indicating Western alliance). The series was likely never marketed in 1916 as the combination of happy googly designs with war figures was really a poor marketing decision. Not until the 1950s was a warehouse stock of the heads located in Germany, never having been assembled with bodies, nor distributed at the time of production. Evidently, too, very few of the heads were ever made because they are very rare. Value Points: rare googly models, seldom found as an assembled set, including rare double-faced Turkish model. $5000/7500
