Basket Case

This page is from the Ladies Home Journal 1923 - I first thought the dolls on these baskets were Rosalinde heads, but they can't be because they would have been way too tall. They must be half dolls. These dolls have a Rosalinde look to them; the tilt of the head and the shape of the face. I wonder who made these half dolls and what were they made of - wax? wax over composition/chalk, bisque? Has anyone seen a basket like these?


  1. Linda, those small dolls could have been made by Stefania Lazarska, as she advertised during the 20's, together with the artistic cloth dolls we know (play dolls and boudoir dolls), wax dolls, "bombonnières dolls" (like the one here)lady bags, etc.
