Introduction

T

n

he opening call at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair was “Open ye gates. Swing wide, ye portals”. With a “Welcome in!” call to all

collectors, Theriault’s echoes the phrase for its title of the important August 1st auction in St. Louis, MO. And just like the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair, the auction will offer a bounty of splendid treasures. Rare antique and vintage dolls from the estates of longtime connoisseur collectors Lorna Lieberman, Linda Kellermann, Merle Glickman and Kathryn DeFillipo who notably attended more than 70 UFDC national conventions over her lifetime are featured, as well as French poupées and Bleuettes with their trousseaux from the private collection of Louise Hedrick who authored several books on those subjects. Too, there is the extraordinary and very rare Teddy’s Adventures in Africa safari set by Schoenhut from the private collection of Keith and Donna Kaonis. Nearly 400 rare treasures are presented in the one-day event. x

Teddy’s Adventures in the August 1st Marquis Auction Reprinted from an Article by Keith Kaonis which first appeared in Antique Doll Collector Magazine

nspired by the real life heroism of Theodore Roosevelt, the Albert Schoenhut Company issued the set, “Teddy’s Adventures in Africa,” on Christmas Day in 1909. The former president had not yet returned from his well-publicized safari, but Schoenhut was quick to capitalize on this important media event. It was shortly after William Taft’s election to the presidency (Roosevelt declined to run again) that Teddy, an avid outdoorsman, took his small army of 260 porters, guides, naturalists and taxidermists and set out from Mombasa, in what was then British East Africa, to the Kapiti plains. The trek began on April 21, 1909 and was much heralded in newspapers across the United States. Several toys were made that capitalized on the famous hunting trip, but none stimulated a child’s imagination and offered possibilities for creative playtime more than the Schoenhut Safari. On Christmas Day 1909, some very lucky children received a Schoenhut safari, available in four

different size sets. The company used some of the animals featured in their enormously successful “Humpty Dumpty Circus” and added several animals seen on the safari – the gazelle, zebra, zebu, giraffe, rhino, hyena and hippo are examples. Artistic license was used as other animals were included that in truth were not seen, such as the gorilla and the deer. Schoenhut modeled the key members of the safari on actual likenesses. There is Teddy; his son Kermit, the photographer; the hunter and great guide, R. J. Cunninghame; taxidermist, Edmund Heller; doctor, Edgar Mearns; naturalist, J. Loring and adjutant guide Leslie Tarlton. The natives represented in the safari are a representation of the different tribes employed on the caravan including the Masai, the Wakamba and the Swakile. It was felt that using porters from various tribes would lessen the chances of mutiny. Schoenhut’s human safari figures are described as Style I, meaning their heads are a two-part construction (you can actually see a seam joining the front and back of the head). Faces were cast of a plaster type material, affixed to the wood head, and then hand painted. The wooden bodies, arms and legs were turned on a lathe and assembled with elastic. Natives were jointed at the shoulders, hips and neck while the white personnel had additional jointing at the elbows and knees enabling them to be realistically posed.

The animals sold in the safari were all glass-eyed; the painted eye style was not used until 1918. There is one notable exception however and that is the gorilla who was only offered in the painted eye style. Unlike the other safari animals whose heads were mostly hand carved, the gorilla’s face was cast in plaster. The animals are also jointed, some with ball jointed necks, and they often have leather ears and horns. Because so much of the work was done by hand, collectors search for those nuances in carving and painting that give each piece character. The personnel are equipped with various accessories, some specially suited for their occupation such as Kermit’s camera and the naturalist’s telescope. When complete, they all wear a cartridge belt and may carry a pistol, rifle and dagger. The Arab Chief and Native Chief were also produced with a cartridge belt and the Arab Chief carries an Arabian-style rifle. The natives carry a spear and one, referred to as the drummer, has holes drilled into his hand to accommodate drum sticks. He wears a burnoose and a drum around his neck. The rarest character in the safari and one very seldom seen is the Arab Chief who was offered in the two largest sets. The body construction is the same as the clowns in the Humpty Dumpty Circus, but naturally, his painting is very different and he wears a felt beard, a flowing red robe and burnoose. Another interesting character is the Native Chief, sometimes confused with the circus “Dude”, although when familiar with these toys they are very easy to tell apart. Only two examples of another highranking “Arab” have been seen, which some people call the “Pasha.” He may have been an experimental figure or perhaps a special order. Naturally, rarity, originality, condition and completeness are the key to value. In the last few years, prices for the safari pieces at auctions have escalated dramatically. After a long hard trek, making camp required tents, straw huts, tables, chairs, bales and boxes for provisions, bowls and jugs for cooking, all items that the Schoenhut Company thoughtfully provided in their sets. Though seemingly inconsequential, original safari props command serious prices.

The larger sets included a beautiful backdrop simulating what was seen along various points of the safari. Mt. Kenia is visible, along with lush vegetation, water and grasslands. Two different scenes were used, one screened on cloth and the other on paper and mounted on card stock. When a few figures, animals and props are placed against the five foot backdrop the result is amazing. One could say the whole is more than the sum of its parts – these individual toys become an exciting safari scene that captivates adults as much as it did children nearly one hundred years ago. Four different sets were offered: a 17-piece set retailing at $6, a 21-piece set for $9.50, a 25-piece set for $13 and a 53-piece set for $30. (Please note: the accessories were counted as pieces.) The personnel and animals were also sold separately. It is highly unusual to find even a small set intact as over the years they were broken up, but it is highly rewarding, albeit challenging to assemble a full complement of safari figures and props. The Schoenhut Safari is a great example of creative toy manufacturing at the turn of the 20th century. Steeped in historical fact, today it is considered a treasure of Americana. Offered for only a few short years, its production may have ended as early as 1912. x

Dolls at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair By Florence Theriault

I

t was a new century. The 1900s! And America, building upon its grand growth in the previous century, determined to prove itself to the world. What better way to do this than an International Exposition? True, there had been the splendid Chicago Exposition of 1893 whose extraordinary wheel of George Washington Ferris had challenged the magnificence of the Gustave Eiffel’s tower at the 1889 Paris Exposition. Even earlier had been the celebrated 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. But now it was 1904 and what better challenge could there be than one American city challenging another. The 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition – more known as the St. Louis World’s Fair – proved to be that worthy challenger. Although little remembered today**, the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair was immense, spanning 75 miles of roads and walkways over 1200 acres. There were 1500 buildings created for the Fair including the Palace of Fine Art (which today houses the St. Louis Arts Museum) and exhibitions were presented by 62 foreign nations and 43 states. Among these exhibitors were doll and toy manufacturers from Germany, France, Japan and, of course, the United States. These exhibits provide an accurate synopsis of the international doll scene at that time. The French doll industry, for example, which had been dominant in international expositions

throughout the 1800s, was vastly subdued. The famed French doll historian, Henri-Rene D’Allemagne, in his book Les Jouets a la World’s Fair in 1904 en Saint-Louis, explained this by criticizing U.S. custom duties that were charged on importations. He noted “there was no practical advantage in meddling in a matter which constituted a waste of time and money for them …

and that ultimately, customs duties were such that exhibitors could not hope to profit from their trip”. Nevertheless, some firms did display including Leopold Lambert who won a Medaille d’Or (Gold Medal) for his automata and Monsieur J. DuSerre whose vitrine displayed “richly dressed bébés which were the joy of all the young Americans” and who was awarded a Medaille de Bronze.

Although little remembered today, the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair was immense, spanning 75 miles of roads and walkways over 1200 acres. Meanwhile the German exhibition was a collaborative display of Sonneberg dolls from various makers. The dolls were the object of awe from all on-lookers. According to Henri d’Allemagne, who described the display in his book, it depicted a large doll seated on a camel, with toys and dolls in baskets completely surrounding her, centering a large group of wonderfully costumed dolls as villagers. He also noted that in the vitrines were other “petite Marquis and Marquises copies de nos plus jolies modeles françaises” and whose execution leaves nothing to be desired, a remarkable admission from a proud Frenchman! Most notable of the German entries at the Exhibition, however, was that of Steiff. D’Allegmagne noted the excellence of colorful felt birds which they presented, but also lamented the exhibited “caricatures of gendarmes and other grotesque characters which seemed to us to be of the most dubious taste”.

In his book, Les Jouets a la World’s Fair in 1904 en Saint-Louis, d’Allemagne praised the toy animals which French manufacturers presented at the fair.

Astonishing in retrospect, what he did not mention was the teddy bear which made its public debut at the fair. The bear had been introduced at the Toy Fair of 1903 to utter failure until an American buyer, recognizing the celebrity power
