Three Collectors – A Sense of History, A Love of Play

V

al Star, a Chicago native and later of Naples, Florida was known throughout the world-wide doll field for her love of beautiful dolls, her sense of curiosity in all things old, and, importantly, her vivacious personality which inspired so many to join the doll community. Her husband of 60 years, Roger Stone, relates “Val’s last doll show was December 2018 in Gaithersburg, Maryland. She had a large booth with amazing dolls, but she also had time to give an hour and half presentation to the attendees in her own special style, flavored with witticisms and even singing Hello Dolly while holding her favorite doll”. While Val’s special focus was 19th century French dolls, her collection also encompasses rare furnishings, accessories and automata.

J

acqueline Barr, of Salisbury, North Carolina, is known and respected throughout the world for her knowledge and expertise of Schoenhut dolls and toys. A past president of the Schoenhut club, her collection has encompassed not only some of the rarest models of dolls including a first year Graziano and the rare Frieda prototype, but also expanded to welcome rarities such as the amazing and so-rare Santa and his Reindeer store display, Teddy Roosevelt Safari, and other one-of-a-kind toys. Too, her collecting interests have stretched to other American dolls, featuring a wonderful group of early cloth, early American wooden, and curious American-style playthings for both boys and girls.

L

inda Levi, of Key Largo, Florida, like all doll collectors, became fascinated with all types of dolls over her several decades of collecting, but one specialty stands proud and strong at the front. It might rank as one of the finest personal collections of the studio dolls of Sasha Morgenthaler today, chosen with an impeccable eye, and preserved with care. Linda chose her dolls with an understanding of the philosophy of Sasha Morgenthaler, and knowing that each was as different as each child it represented was different. The collector – and the collection – is remarkable. x

It was a woman in silk robes with high circled solar-type headdress that had sat weeping on the mountainside, and after delivering a message to them, simply faded away. Controversy ensued, an investigation was underway, and finally in 1851, the

Church declared Our Lady of La Salette was a true revelation with her message of hope and reconciliation. Her image, as described by the children, was thereafter presented in paintings, bronze sculptures and even, as in this case, in doll form, in elaborate costume which some credited to the work of the regional artist Esperance Bosca (born 1818) while others have said simply “a local craftsman”. This particular doll remained in its original family home in Perpignan from the mid-1800s until it came in the late 1900s to the Musée Roybet-Fould in Courbevoie near Paris. Later it was deaccessioned by the Museum, and in 2007 was auctioned by Theriault’s to the caring hands of a private collector where it has remained until now. $3500/4500

her very rare realistically-weighted infant doll, Pro Juventate, which was designed as a teaching aid in courses on newborn care; similiar teaching dolls had earlier been made by both Martha Chase and Kathe Kruse. During WWI era she was deeply involved in the children’s refugee centers in Switzerland which offered shelter to children from all over the war-torn world, and then, later in the 1950s, her worldwide travels furthered her fascination with the faces of children as she introduced her “children of the whole world” series. Sasha Morgenthaler continued in the creation of her personal studio dolls until well into the 1960s. After the death of her husband, she was approached by the Gotz factory of Rodental, Germany and under an agreement with that firm the first Sasha mass-produced dolls, marked “Sasha-Serie”, were made by them from 1965-1969. Commercial dolls also appeared from the Frido-Trendon Company of England, beginning in 1966 in an overlap with the Gotz production, but continuing much longer, until 1986. Throughout this time the private collection of Sasha Morgenthaler was preserved by the City of Zurich in the Barrengasse Museum which had been endowed with her artistic estate in 1976. That museum is now closed and in the search for a new location. ABOUT THE DOLLS

A frequently-heard comment about Sasha dolls from the uninitiated is “they all look alike”. Oh no! That is actually so far from the truth. Each of the studio dolls was hand-painted and it is said that Sasha Morgenthaler waited until each doll was assembled, dressed and wigged, when she finally sat at the table, examined the essence of the doll, and began the final painting of the facial features, including choosing the color of the eyes. This style of painting was very deliberate. Whereas formula factory painting of a Ink script marks can often be found on the left foot of the molded body Sasha studio dolls. This foot has the signature of Sasha at the toes, followed by M (initial code for the molder), 182/009 (the 182nd doll made in 1969), CI (type of body and type of face), and 19 (color tint of body).

A variety of bodies used from 1940s onward show different sizes for each era and maker, as well as different styles and materials. The Sasha studio dolls are 20” as compared with the production Gotz dolls which are 16”.

doll is usually symmetrical – the eyes perfectly paired and sized, for example – Sasha believed this was not reality. She followed an asymmetrical approach, in both the modeling and painting of her dolls, because she believed this most accurately mirrored real people. Thus, no two eyes were ever painted exactly alike and arms and legs were never exactly the same length. Skin tones, too, varied; more than 20 different shades were used for the molding material of the body. Early studio dolls were made with one of four basic facial types, identified simply as I, II, III, and IV. The astute collector of early studio Sasha dolls distinguishes the facial type either by a learned eye, or by examining the bottom of the left foot. Furthermore, the left foot can contain a wealth of information about the doll including the color code of the complexion and such detail as that this is 30th doll made in 1967. For collectors wishing to learn more that Sasha dolls there are several excellent books although most are outof-print. A wealth of information, including connections with several clubs and special interest chat groups, can be found in a Sasha search of the internet. x

The World of Toys and Dolls from Schoenhut, 1890-1930

hen the character dolls of the Schoenhut firm of Philadelphia playfully paraded onto the scene in 1911, the company had already been in business for 39 years. Or arguably, even longer. Because when the founder of the firm, Albert Schoenhut, had immigrated to America in 1866 from Wurtemberg Germany, he brought with him a century-long German family tradition of wooden toy and doll making. All history is a cycle. It is reported that young Albert Schoenhut’s youthful ability to repair German toy pianos landed him a job at a Philadelphia department store. By 1877, that job had evolved into his own production of sturdier toy pianos than those being imported from Germany. Other toys were soon added, ranging from metal xylophones to shooting galleries to boy-toy paraphernalia such as helmets and swords and sail boats. Success was evident. The factory outgrew itself, moving to ever larger locations, more than six times in the next quarter century. The final factory, in 1908, was six stories in height and covered more than five and a half acres of floor space. In the next five years, and for nearly a decade thereafter, the Schoenhut firm became the largest doll and toy manufacturer in the world, an important fact that is overlooked by most doll collectors today. During this time the firm greatly expanded its Humpty Dumpty Circus of 1902, introduced its line of Rolly-Dolly toys and Teddy Roosevelt Adventures in Africa series, and, then in 1911, proudly announced its forthcoming dolls with a pronouncement in Playthings Magazine

that “At last!! Everybody predicted Schoenhut would do it – and he did”. Such a bold statement seems rooted in competition, so it is useful to look around at similar doll and toy enterprises of the era. One comparison seems particularly interesting, the Steiff firm of Germany. Both the Schoenhut and the Steiff firms had arisen from the vision and energy of one person – Albert Schoenhut in one and Margaret Steiff in the other. Each firm had remained a family enterprise; interestingly, Schoenhut’s six sons were raised in the business from very early years, while Steiff, who never married, had the services of her six nephews. Both firms energetically surveyed the passing social scene in the search for new

product ideas, curiously often overlapping such as in the creation of comic character figures including Foxy Grandpa and Max and Moritz, in the production of toys related to the circus, or in toys inspired by the legendary Teddy Roosevelt, whether it be his bear hunting sagas or his adventures in Africa.

A group of rare dolls, toys and special orders created by Schoenhut include, clockwise, carved hair boy in football uniform, Ringmaster in large mannequin form, Santa Claus Rolly-Dolly in large size, Koko the clown in original costume, Teddy Roosevelt, guide from African Adventures, small Santa Claus Rolly-Dolly, and special order The Japanese Man of which five examples are known to exist.

Both Schoenhut and Steiff centralized their production by the construction of a large “modern” factory, each designed around a central courtyard which was aimed at allowing the greatest possible light into the worker’s rooms. The style of toy created by each firm was specifically related to the easy availability of quality materials, for each insisted on the best quality of materials for their toys and dolls; for Schoenhut it was basswood, which was plentiful throughout the northeast United States and known for its ease of carving; and for Steiff it was pure wool felt from her own mail-order felt firm which advertised “I offer under guarantee pure wool materials”. And both Schoenhut and Steiff believed in promotion! “Advertise, advertise, advertise” was the mantra of each firm. Marketing was never restricted to their homeland countries; rather, international trade created booming

sales. While German toymakers had traditionally relied on an international market, this was new for an American firm. Yet before the first decade of the 1900s ended, Schoenhut was shipping their toys and dolls to Europe, South Africa, South American and Australia. And then there were the dolls. The origin date of each firm’s doll production is virtually the same if one allows for a broad definition of dolls. For Steiff it was the simple paper mache/felt-bodied doll shown in their 1892 catalog which by 1902 that had morphed into the caricature Steiff cloth doll, at first with velvet face on felt body and by 1909 with felt face and body. The development of the classic Schoenhut doll was also evolutionary and closely corresponds to the Steiff timeline. There were, first, in the 1890s the large articulated

wildly-popular Rolly-Dolly appeared in 1908 it featured a number of character doll faces including some, such as Schnickelfritz, which soon also appeared as spring-jointed dolls.

The ingenuity and imagination of the Schoenhut firm is evident in this photo. Their production lines ranged from dolls to comic character toys to rollydollies, and even super-sized clowns.

The introduction of the Teddy Roosevelt Adventures in Africa set in 1909 was a most important evolutionary step in the creation of the classic Schoenhut doll of the next 20 years. That is because the 8-inch Teddy figure and other members of his hunting party had spring-jointed knees, which were, as Carol Corson notes in her landmark book, Schoenhut Dolls, A Collector’s Encyclopedia, (Hobby House Press, 1993) “a miniature version of the spring joint that was to become the hallmark of Albert Schoenhut’s next great invention, The Schoenhut Doll”. In a fascinating historical sidenote both Margarete Steiff and Albert Schoenhut, who over saw the birth and development of their companies, died just after their dolls were introduced. In both cases, their families carried on the business.

Musical instruments including the xylophone followed upon the company’s original piano models, and their toy line expanded to novelties such as the “Rubber Ball Shooting Gallery”, comic characters, and eventually to their wonderful wooden-bodied art character dolls.

display figures of Santa Claus and Palmer Cox Brownies made to special order, as well as 42-inch mortise and tenon jointed wooden characters with interchangeable heads, designed for display of Schoenhut’s popular children’s costumes.

The Schoenhut wooden doll had arrived on the scene in 1911, just as the industry-wide art character reform movement was taking root. Right in line with other models of that year, the 1911 Schoenhut doll portrayed highly-characterized children’s faces ranging from moody to mischievous. The first year’s models were carved by M. Graziano, “a well-known sculptor of the day, who was a member of a noble Italian family”, according to Eleanor St. George in The Dolls of Yesterday (Bonanza Books, 1958); other details concerning M. Graziano have not to this day been found. But in one very specific way, the Schoenhut doll differed from other

dolls of the era. One was in the method of articulation. Rather than the typical cord stringing or simple pinjointing, the doll was entirely metal spiral-spring-jointed, allowing for infinite and sturdy articulation and posing. The jointing was an important part of the doll’s purpose which was durability.

Schnickelfritz character doll is rubbing the hair of the grand-sized rolly-dolly doll, perhaps remembering that, in his first appearance, he was also a rolly-dolly. Two other Schoenhut dolls look on.

During the next 13 years 1911-1924 the Schoenhut doll blossomed, not only through the introduction of new models, but also by tweeking existing dolls with variations in style, costume, and even techniques of production. The dolls – and the entire Schoenhut firm – thrived during this period, becoming the largest toy and doll company in the world. History has its way of intervening in the best-laid plans. World War I had not only interfered with the marketing of the Steiff dolls and toys in America and some European countries, but, on the flip side, had laid open the field for the rapid growth and expansion of the American made Schoenhut doll. Then, firmly established by War’s end, the Schoenhut firm grew further and thrived until the mid/late 1920s when prosperity began to falter. Some say failure was imbedded in the very product – the creation of dolls and toys that did not break, thus lessening the market for replacement dolls. Others blame the luxury aspect of the dolls, the use of fine woods where other firms now used the budget-priced composition material. Like all of history, the answer is never simple but the trail is fascinating. x

The world awaits! Two 21-inch Schoenhut dolls play with travel toys from the Schoenhut line. The sailing boat with patented iron keel design would actually float realistically, while the later lightwood Aeroplane was clearly inspired by Lindbergh’s flight as the box design shows the Spirit of St. Louis flying over the Atlantic, the Statue of Liberty at one end and the Eiffel Tower at the other.
