Character toddler marked KW 10


22″ Character toddler, marked KW (in a circle) 10 (at neck) 1910, ALL ORIGINAL, mohair wig, toddler body. The company that made this doll, Kohl & Wengenroth of Offenbach, Germany, was small with little information available except they were founded in 1864 and made character dolls during the first several decades of the 20th century. Because the company was so small it is assumed that they did as many firms did and acquired supplies from larger firms. The head mold is very close to ones produced by Kammer & Reinhardt. Acquired from the original owner, who was an only child and had no children of her own, this doll is in like-new condition wit absolutely no defects.  As an added bonus this doll comes with a complete wardrobe and trunk. 3900
