Extremely Rare German Bisque Art Character, Model 103, by Kammer and Reinhardt 45,000/65,000

Lot # 10 (Sale Order: 10 of 345)      

23" (58 cm.) Bisque socket head with deeply sculpted characterized features of solemn-faced older child, deeply-set eye sockets with heavy eye lids, painted blue/grey eye...mores, black upper eyeliner, grey eyeshadow at lower rims, accented nostrils, closed mouth, shaded lips, blonde mohair wig, composition and wooden ball-jointed body, antique costume. Condition: generally excellent, some typical wig pulls at back of head. Marks: 103. Comments: Kammer and Reinhardt, from their art character series, circa 1910, the model was created in one size only, 58 cm. Value Points: Among the rarest models from the German art character period, with exceptional quality of modeling, appealing almost as though hand-pressed sculpting, and with most artistic complexion and painting of features, original body and body finish, original wig. Only one other example of the 103 model has been sold by Theriault's, from the Legoland Museum of Antique Dolls and Toys. Historical Note: Although it has long been known that the model (and its companions, the 104 and 105 models) were made by Kammer and Reinhardt, the actual back story of the dolls remained a mystery until 1987, nearly 80 years after their creation, thanks to the tireless research of German scholars, Marianne and Jurgen Cieslik. The first clue appeared in memoirs of Franz Reinhardt who said that in the firm's quest to create a new type of realistic doll "we contacted a Berlin artist who had been recommended to us". But no mention was made of the artist's name. Then, years later, another clue surfaced, it was an obscure reference in a German newspaper article of 1928 which dealt with the Walterhausen doll industry which said "the first dolls of this type were created based on the head of a baby modeled from nature by Professor Lewin-Funcke". Based on this obscure clue, the Ciesliks tracked down the family of Lewin-Funcke and uncovered still more important information regarding which models that famed Berlin sculptor had created and who had served as the model. They learned that the model for the 103, 104, and 105 models was Karin Lewin-Funcke, the daughter of the sculptor. An old handwritten note from K*R described the 103 model as "girl/serious", made in the 58 cm. size only.

French Bisque Art Character by Albert Marque, Ballet Russe Costume, Provenance 140,000/190,000

Lot # 17 (Sale Order: 17 of 345)      

22" (56 cm.) Distinctively-sculpted bisque head achieved by four-part mold which lends definition to the temple and cheek bones, elongated slender throat, very full lower...more cheeks, rounded nose tip, closed mouth with solemn expression, distinctively modeled pierced ears, original brunette hand-tied human hair wig, uniquely-modeled body with elongated tapered-shape torso, wide hips, undefined waist, composition upper arms, bisque lower arms with attached bisque-ball-joints at the elbows, separately-sculpted fingers, wide upper thighs, elongated lower legs with shapely calves, elongated narrow feet. Condition: virtually mint condition, with flawless and exquisite bisque, enhanced by its early presence (#8) from the mold. Marks: A. Marque (incised signature) 8 (red ink number on head). Veronque (pencil lettered on foot). France, circa 1916, the model was sculpted by French artist, Albert Marque with a unique body design created by fellow artist. Aristodeme Botta; it is believed that only 100 examples of the doll were created. The Marque doll was a signature model of the French movement known as "Renaissance of the French Doll" whose purpose was to re-invigorate the 19th century French doll industry. To that end, celebrated French artist and sculptors, as well as couturier houses, were called upon to create new models and present them in exceptional costumes. One such group was presented in an exclusive exhibition at the fashion boutique of Parisian art patron, Margaine-Lacroix, about 1916. Showcased at that exhibition were several Marque dolls in costumes suggestive of the theatrical costumes designed for the popular Ballet Russe with particular attention to the Scheherazade opera whose dramatic Arabian Nights style costumes were designed by Leon Bakst. This doll is likely of that series, wearing its original costume of uniquely woven metallic gold costume edged with gold beads, matching slippers with leather soles impressed with figure of doll, matching turban with feathered trim, and blue and purple brocade silk jacket. Provenance: the doll was acquired directly from the Margaine-Lacroix Paris exhibition in 1916, and many years later was presented to that owner's son and daughter-in-law who founded the Museum of Old Dolls and Toys in Winter Haven, Florida. There the doll stood center-stage for decades, alongside its partner doll (#7 of the Marque series, sold by Theriault's in 2015). When the Museum closed its doors in 1984, both dolls were acquired by Lillian Hamm in whose home they resided until presented at auction by Theriault's.
