Sonneberg Circle Dot Bru

$3450.
The remarkable ability of the German doll makers to replicate the theatrical flavor of the French is so evident here with this 23" Circle dot Bru inspired German bebe.  She has pale, pale bisque as a palate for her huge, brown paperweight eyes, open-closed mouth with molded teeth, accentuated upper lip, heavy brows and flowing eyelashes, and she wears an extreme, long blond mohair antique tail wig with four extensions.  The crown of the head has a uniquely shaped cut with her original cardboard pate cut in the same pattern.
Her chunky, French type body is high quality with straight wrists and provides the perfect silhouette for her French, fuchsia silk party frock with luxurious pleating.  Her wire framed bonnet of lace and fuchsia silk is a simple but bold accessory, perfect to frame a face so full of character.  The Bru type dolls were made by several firms including Kestner, Kuhnlenz and Alt, Beck and Gottschalk, all of which seemed to be inspired mostly by the Circle Dot face.

Young Flapper Twins

  SOLD
Both of these girls are 8" tall, with pale bisque heads, blue glass sleep eyes, open mouths with teeth, ash blond original mohair, bobbed  wigs, and five-piece "flapper-type" bodies.  They are both dressed in their original rayon ribbon and lace, simple tutus and both share the luminous detail of unusual, silver painted legs and molded pumps.  The only thing differentiating them, other than unique charm, is that the wrap-around hair ribbons they wear have decorative broaches at the front, one in emerald green and one in sapphire blue.
