T

urning the pages of our past as we shelter at home is now a commonplace. This might be, quite literally, pages of old nearly-forgotten family albums or might be pages of our mind. We dream of rare dolls we have imagined, and we dream of others we’ve loved which got away. Theriault’s brings many of these treasures to you today, to real life, in their January 2021 auction, offering more than 400 antique and vintage dolls and playthings. The beloved French doll is in a  bundance. The sizes range from grand exhibition models to dainty cabinet sizes. Poupées, too, are found, along with their accessories and extra costumes. Early English wooden dolls, French automata, mechanical toys, Kathe Kruse and cloth dolls, and original Shirley Temple dolls, too will be available. In all, the auction is all you hoped for. x

American market in the comic strip “The Katzenjammer Kids”. The comic strip was created in 1897 by German immigrant Rudolph Dirks for the Hearst newspaper syndicate. In 1912 Dirks and Hearst became involved in a legal wrangle, resulting in Dirks leaving Hearst and creating a rival comic strip “Hans und Fritz” (basically the same characters), while Hearst continued “The Katzenjammer Kids” although drawn by another artist. The actual doll models were registered by Kammer and Reinhardt in the German courts in 1913, and it seems logical that their production may have been inspired by this legal battle, as a means of Hearst continuing to promote the Max and Moritz names, although this fact is not currently documented.

THE AUCTION CONTINUES ON THE ADDENDA SHEETS 190


The American Black Cloth Folk Doll

A

fine small collection of American black cloth dolls is presented at Theriault’s January 23-24 catalog auction ranging from unique handmade folk examples to the artistry of Martha Chase to a distinctive and sought-after early cloth doll from the hands of Dewees Cochran, more famously known for her composition-bodied child portrait dolls.

Nana by Dewees Cochran.

The black cloth woman doll presented by Martha Chase from her studio in Pawtucket, Rhode Island about 1900 is notable for its 26” size, a sure indication that the doll was likely intended as an exhibition model. It was during this same era that Chase presented other historical dolls such as George Washington and it may be that a plan was to create an exhibition that represented pivotal times in American history. At any rate, the doll, with exceptional detail of sculpting and characterization, and oil painted features worthy of portraiture, remains a small masterpiece of American doll history. Another commercial doll from the 1890s/early 1900s era is in the January auction collection. Known as the Lancaster Rag Doll in deference to the Lancaster, Pennsylvania location where most existing similar dolls have been found, there is some conjecture that the dolls were made by family members of Lancaster artist Charles Demuth

Virginia with small twins.

whose mother was known for her fine needlework. At any rate, one so-called Lancaster Rag Doll has been located with an attached note stating that it was purchased from the Ladies Repository which was founded to allow “women of good character who had come upon hard times” to make a living from their needlework skills. The dolls have molded stockinet heads with stiffened oil-painted features and brown cotton bodies, and are quite rare to find. Handmade folk dolls, each unique and generally very imaginative, are the most commonly found black dolls of

191


the late 1800s/ early 1900s. Yet common is hardly the correct word. The dolls are actually quite scarce. Examples of the dolls feature clever use of found material in their making such as pearl button eyes, and handmade costumes. One Lancaster Rag doll. gentleman’s costume surely designates him as “gentleman around town”, while another in a very fine formal wear suit has stitching of his face resembling a jack ‘o lantern pumpkin for which he is named “Pumpkin Man”. Another unique model is “Virginia”; despite her highlycaricaturized presence, the doll was the prized possession of young Mary Norris of Philadelphia area as the doll represented the beloved family maid, Virginia. (An aside: Mary later sued her very wealthy father who wrote her out of his estate because Gentleman around town. she married a lowly mechanic); the provenance is included with the doll. And then there is Nana, the remarkable cloth doll made by Dewees Cochran in 1934. Very few examples of the celebrated artist’s early cloth works are known to exist, and this example is preserved in remarkable original state of preservation. x
