Most you know that I collected dolls long before I met my first Sasha doll and that I especially love cloth dolls. Sweet Abby suggested that I share some photos of the Kathe Kruse dolls that live here on the Cow Creek farm. Abby, an early AI Sasha Studio doll is shown here with an all cloth Kathe Kruse (KK) doll known as the German Child. She is about 20 inches tall, is wonderfully hand painted and, like most KK dolls, she has a human hair wig. 🙂
A closer view of this dear child. 🙂
This girl is also a German Child and about 20 inches tall. She is also all cloth but not as old as the previous girl.
This pretty girl is a Hampelchen with painted hair. She is about 18 inches in height. 🙂
This beautiful girl is a Doll I H and she is about 18 inches tall. She is all cloth and her shoes and socks are appropriately replaced and not original. Her dress is original. 🙂
These two girls are sisters and very early dolls. They came with mommy-made matching outfits plus these outfits they wear in the photos. ❤
A closer view to see of the big sister. 🙂
A closer view of baby sister. 🙂
Both of these girls are ponytail girls. The taller girl is about 19 inches tall and the smaller one is 14 inches tall. Their heads are synthetic and they are handpainted with human hair wigs.
This lovely girl is very early and is all cloth and about 18 inches tall. She is Doll I H and I love her face painting. ❤
This is a rarer Kathe Kruse doll known as a Du Mein and she is about 14 inches tall. She is hand painted, has wide hips and is all cloth too. ❤
This happy trio consists of a 14 inch minty girl made in the 1950’s, a small 9 inch girl known as Daumlinchen, and a 12 inch girl known as Rumpumpel. The smaller girl is cloth bodied and inside her wire limbs are wrapped in foam rubber so she is still soft but bendable which is nice for posing. :). All of the wigs are made of human hair. 🙂
A nice grouping of 14 inch dolls all with hand painted faces, human hair wigs, and cloth bodies. 🙂
Very nice hand painting. 🙂
An older girl with a lovely plaited wig. 🙂
Bobbed haircut on this pretty girl. 🙂
I love this pretty girl with a most unusual hair color. Most Kathe Kruse doll wigs are blonde or brownish in color. This brunette is a dear one!
A view of her hair styling in the back. ❤
Here she is next to a lovely puddle eyed Sasha doll that I will be adopting out. You can see this girl is a bit smaller. 🙂
This is an eatly wide hipped Doll I that is about 17 inches tall. As you can see, she is tucked-in with other dolls in a display and I will show her better in another post along with other Kathe Kruse dolls that are not shown today. My Abby had a great idea I think to share the KK dolls with you on the blog which proves she not only has good looks but that she is a smart girl too. 😉
Finally, a partial group photo of the KK girls. I hope you enjoyed this atypical post and thank you for visiting with us today. Abby and I are sending you hugs and happy wishes for the week to come! 🙂 xxx
