Ascent to the Mountains – The Spielzeugmuseum Angela Prader in Davos, Switzerland It began as a simple amusement, became a diversion in an otherwise busy family schedule, and, somewhere along the line, became a serious life’s work and study. Some who study antique dolls and playthings remain private collectors, others author books and still others lecture. Some dream of founding a museum. Of those, a very few actually do. One who did is Angela Prader of Davos, Switzerland, founder of Spielzeugmuseum Davos. Establishing a museum compels vast planning, hard work, and a determined vision. In addition to all the business and building decisions, there is the collection itself. What will be included? What will be its standards? Angela Prader resolved, early on, that she would seek and select only the best in each category. “Originality of the doll or the dollhouse, or the costume or the house contents, has been crucial to 3

me”, she reflected in an interview. “Of course, one always wants the object itself to be perfect, such things as flawless bisque and porcelain or original paint on wood or paper mache, but I decided to go a step further. I’ve always sought out dolls wearing their original costumes and wigs, and with wonderful accessories.” And then there is the question of specialization. “I wanted to show dolls and playthings from every genre, from the 1700s until the early 20th century”, she noted. “And because I’ve always had to choose and buy carefully, I decided that I would just pause until I could find the best of the best for every category. Having to be patient has stood me well, because, along the way, I continued to study and learned what the best really was. And that’s what I added to the Museum.” The Spielzeugmuseum Prader has no incidental objects that just wandered in by chance. Each item has a reason, a purpose to portray. Whether it is the signature “Victoria” fashion lady with her wonderful provenance and extraordinary original trousseau (“I knew I needed this doll for my museum, but I was so stunned when I went the limit


and beyond at auction to win her that I couldn’t move or breathe for some time”, she still recalls even though that event occurred more than 15 years ago) or the collection of “Kinderbringen” figures so symbolic to the world of doll collecting, or her peddler dolls chosen for their originality of wares, the focus has always been fullness and unity. Into her fold, Angela Prader has welcomed a very rare set of Grodnertal wooden dolls with sculpted hats alongside Lenci’s googly-eyed “Autumn” from her four season series. There is an outstanding Maerklin ceramic stove with six copper cookwares counterbalancing an extraordinary collection of Austrian enamel miniature furniture. Tiny wooden Erzebirge villagers in their original box juxtapose the “Der Wanderer” mountain climber by Steiff. There are more early Steiff dolls, including an impossibly-complete early school room set with all accessories. Rare examples of early paper mache ladies, many photographed in books, proudly stand alongside German bisque and porcelain beauties with fancily-sculpted hair. The world of fashion is carefully represented, ranging from a grand-sized paper mache gentleman as Mozart to an amazing collection of eight French ladies by Lafitte-Desirat from the early 20th century, each in original costume on base. There are 19 miniature bisque dolls in original handmade elaborate costumes representing the coronation of Elizabeth I that contrast a pair of Japanese bisque children in outstanding exhibition-quality silk traditional costumes. Dolls in fine folklore costume, including a rare pair of bisque children in Swiss costume, parade in competition with elegantly-attired French ladies. And should the fashion dolls, themselves, not be enough there are collections of early antique purses, fans and accessories to be presented.


The collection includes very rare bisque dollhouse gentlemen with sculpted helmets, an all-original French mechanical waltzing lady by Vichy, a bevy of early sculpted-hair dolls known as “milliner’s models” , Grodnertal wooden dolls including an exceptional set of six dolls with sculpted hats, English poured wax child dolls in superb original silk costumes, set of Chinese Door of Hope dolls, very fine French all-bisque dolls in original costumes, mint Chad Valley Snow White and Seven Dwarves in original boxes, and hundreds more. Representing their native Switzerland are a large pair of carved wooden dolls by Huggler, an early studio Sasha doll, and a remarkable collection of more than 25 different models of the rare early 20th century metal-bodied dolls by Bucherer, some virtually unknown. The Museum also features a fine collection of doll houses, doll rooms, stores and kitchens. Notable is an English carved wooden butcher shop, German Apothecary by Oscar Meier, early petite Hacker stores with lithographed decorations, and more. There are German doll house rooms with original furnishings and curtains, and superb French folding rooms with original furnishings. Rare individual miniature of carved bone and silver form other collections. Although Angela Prader preferred to display her museum objects singularly, she has also been keen on placing related objects in nearby proximity. Thus, abundant in the Museum have been doll-related objects. Carriages range from an impressive hand-carved coach with drivers and passengers to hand-painted tin carriages by makers such as Maerklin and Bing. Furniture includes superb 19th century works including maitrise models. And there is the collection of rare 19th century toy stoves, complete with their cookware and accessories. Too, rarities in doll’s tea and dinner services had been show-cased in the museum, many in their original boxes.


Among the rarest of the 19th century doll and toy world are playthings of paper mache or paper. Their delicate nature, by very definition, means that few still exist in fine condition; those that have were assiduously sought out by Angela Prader, and her collection offers superb examples such as a boxed set of men and woman on horseback in classic fox hunt, mid-19th-century boxed paper dolls, sets of paper soldiers, and a Chinese checkers game with paper mache figural pins. There are paper mache candy containers and squeak toys including a wonderful lady whose shoulder pads pop up revealing two little children hidden inside, and an early paper mache doll, believed to be dated early 18th century, with rattle interior. Sought-after Erzebirge wooden dolls and figures include complete market places, villages, and other vignettes from the 19th century, and wax dolls are wearing their original dainty costumes, while a rare early wax taufling baby has dated ink inscription. The collection rounds out with a wonderful collection of antique toys, ephemera and tinplate trains. The Davos Museum is a tribute to the vision of Angela Prader, one of Europe’s keen eyes in collecting. She was known throughout the continent as loving a wide range of objects that traced the entire history of playthings, her mission. Her husband Jurgen Prader, who encouraged and aided her from the early years of collecting throughout the Museum years, says “her mission was to show to visitors the amazing craftsmanship, the beauty, the harmony, the love with which these old things were manufactured. For her it was art and culture.”

History: The Alpine regions of Switzerland, Germany and Austria traditionally celebrated Spring with the annual "ascent to the


mountains"; herds of cows and their shepherds single-filed the narrow mountain passes to reach the freshest grasses at the mountain peaks, where they feasted until August. At that time, they returned, single-file again, down the narrow passes to the villages below. The return to the villages ("descent from the mountains", known as "Almabtrieb" in Austria and "Alpabfahrten" in Switzerland) was celebrated by merry festivals, the shepherds dressed in colorful traditional folklore costumes, and the greatest milk-producing cow was bedecked with flowers and a crown. Historical accounts have poetically described the event as "cow bells across the meadows". $1500/2500

At that time, Lady Hamilton, who worked diligently to raise funds for the Red Cross humanitarian efforts aiding prisoners of war, decided to offer the doll and her trousseau as a prize in a fund-raising raffle. The doll was placed in a shop window of Preston Street in Faversham and more than 2000 raffle tickets were sold. (A copy of the original raffle advertisement is included).The doll was won by Great Aunt Annie, of the town, who kept the doll for nearly half a century, finally passing it along to her great niece who named the doll Victoria in honor of the British queen. The doll and her trousseau were placed at auction in 1994, acquired by the Spielzeugmuseum Davos where she has reigned flawlessly until this time. $25,000/35,000

The Story of the Wax Sisters Dolls is a Curious and Delightful Serendipity About 1875, a doting English grandfather had chosen five wax dolls, all identical except the color and small details of their gown, to gift to his five granddaughters. Time passed, the girls grew up, the dolls passed down in their own families, generation after generation, and eventually all became separated. Angela Prader acquired the doll in rose gown, knowing nothing of her story, and displayed her in the Museum. One day a visitor arrived to tour the Museum and, upon reaching the wax doll in rose, exclaimed "I have the same doll, but in a different color of gown". Querying the visitor on her family history and learning of the generous great-great-great grandfather's gifts, it became obvious that these dolls were two of the five original sister dolls. The doll in aqua silk soon joined her sister at the Museum, and, just as happily, the two far-flung real-people relatives, who had never known of the other's existence, became acquainted and re-united the actual family. The only question remains "where are the remaining three dolls?"
