There have been a few new additions to the Sasha Shangri-La family that have not been shown on the blog.
Today, I am very happy to introduce to you a new boy. Please meet Markus, a CIII Sasha Studio boy, hand painted by Sasha Morgenthaler, made of gypsum and adopted from a lovely person living in Switzerland that showed his photo on Facebook in order to find him a new home. ❤
Markus is a scout boy and wears his original outfit and flag. 🙂
I have taken photos of Markus with and without his hat and I absolutely love his wig which is thick and wavy and has a bit of curl too. ❤️
I checked Markus’s feet and sadly, there are no remaining marks that Sasha would have penciled on the bottom of his feet. I think he is possibly a 1950’s boy. He has been loved and he is not a “minty” boy which is perfect for me since I can enjoy redressing him and I will have no worries about causing his first “ding”. 🙂
The soulful expression of Markus. ❤
A side profile with curls. ❤
Beautiful hair. 🙂
Markus and I think you for visiting with us today. We hope you have enjoyed this post and we hope you have a wonderful day and a wonderful week to come. 🙂 xxx
A final waterlogue image of Markus. ❤
Ginger he is indeed Marvelous ! and Markus is the prefect name for him ! How wonderful to have this incredible boy scout to come live with your Sasha family. A fabulous fair and great hair and he looks so serious in his scout uniform, like he’s keeping a look out for anything he can help with.
Wonderful wonderful addition to your clan, I love him. 🙂 xxxx
Hi Dee! Thank you for the lovely comments. I am still pinching myself because it does not seem real that he is here. I love him too and I look forward to redressing Markus soon. 🙂 xxx
Congratulations on being the proud new owner of this fabulous boy Ginger…I wondered who the super lucky person was! 😉 A scout is a great lad to have around the farm, I am sure he will always lend a hand and be a great helper!
Thank you Lorraine! Markus is indeed in a good place here on the farm. Already he has asked to camp out and toast marshmallows! I must find some overalls and maybe a flannel shirt for him soon! 🙂 xxx
Markus is superb – how lovely to be able to offer him a new happy home. He needs a tent for his campout and a sleeping bag to go with the wonderful Scout uniform.
Thank you DollMum! I love his scout outfit and it is so nice that he has held onto his flag. We are looking forward to spending time with him especially outdoor time. 🙂 xxx
Markus is too die for Ginger! I love him! You are indeed one lucky girl to own him! Well Done!!
Hi Ronnie, thank you! I am very lucky and I just keep staring at him! He is wonderful. 🙂 xxx
What a handsome chap he is Ginger…love his vintage ‘feel’…what a lucky girl you are. Thanks for sharing the photos of your lovely boy xx
Thank you Lel. I am very lucky to have Markus join our Sasha family. Glad you enjoyed seeing him! 🙂 xxx
How wonderful to see one of the Studio Boy Dolls… and such an attractive one as this.
You see SO many of the girls that I’m wondering if anyone knows just what the girl/boy manufacturing ratio was? Love the eye/hair colouring and simply ADORE his fabulous Scout outfit. How marvellous that it has ALL remained present and intact as so often the loose pieces, like the flag pole and hat tend get lost over the years. (How much of his clothing is labelled with the Sasha name tapes?)
Sorry though to hear that his foot markings have disappeared/erased themselves over the years …but perhaps these can hopefully be researched.His type III face mould is my very favourite of all the four facial styles.
Great waterlogue photos of Markus.
Many thanks for the good wishes.
Hi Kendal and thank you! I would love to know the ratio of studio girls to studio boys. It seems that there are far less boys than girls. I wonder if anyone kept records of all the studio dolls and descriptions of the dolls and their outfits. Wouldn’t that be wonderful to understand….a Sasha Studio Doll Inventory? 🙂
I love his scout outfit too. I checked and there are no labels on his clothing. It is so nice to see a Sasha label so it is a bit disappointing. The outfit is wonderful and is very well made. Markus does have his wrist tag on the left wrist. 🙂
I am glad you enjoyed the waterlogue images. Markus sends his love. ❤ xxx
Marcus is just amazing Ginger, I just love everything about him. A few bumps and grazes are part of being a good scout. His eyes are so similar in their treatment to my girl. She was made in 1950 so I would say your Marcus is from about that time. I just adore his outfit, everything there too, how lucky you are to have such a rare boy. I love his wavy hair by the way ❤
Thank you Janet. Yes, Markus is a good scout with his bumps and rubs. He must have climbed a lot of mountains and forded a lot of streams over the years. 😉
I just love him everything about him. His wavy hair is adorable. I am so glad they selected a wavy hair when they made them. I am very lucky. ❤ xxx
Markus is wonderful Ginger – incredibly handsome. He looks great in his uniform and I look forward to seeing him in some other outfits. The waterlogue portraits are very effective.
Thank you Tricia! After I undressed him to look for Sasha labels, I then redressed him in another outfit and will show him soon. Glad you liked the waterlogue images! 🙂 xxx
Thanks for sharing pictures with us. Markus is truly wonderful. He looks like the kind of lad always ready for an adventure.
Hi Julie and thank you for the lovely comment for Markus! We are having a wonderful time redressing him and seeing his different “looks” in different outfits. 🙂 xxx
Oh Ginger, what an incredibly handsome lad Markus is. I am catching up but going from newer posts to old, so have seen him in his different new outfit…and my goodness he’s a little heart throb in both outfits! I love his face, his wavy hair and those cute legs, he really couldn’t be any more handsome, could he!
And he couldn’t have found a nicer place to come home to than to join the Sasha Shangri-la clan 🙂
Big hugs and lots of love
Thank you Sharon for your very lovely comments. I am so glad you caught up on commenting because I enjoy knowing your thoughts and insights plus it gives me an opportunity to revisit the posts. I don’t get to do that very often unfortunately.
I think Markus is incredibly handsome too. He is a real pleasure to have here in the Sasha family and I never tire of looking at him. I cannot seem to get enough of the studio dolls since each one is special and unique. What joy they bring! 🙂 xxxx
