Due to taking over 500 photos I have decided to separate my posts into smaller groups (although not necessarily in the correct order) to make life easier….so to start off with here is Janet’s stunningly magnificent ‘final all-together’ Repilca Studio Doll display, before being separated and returned to their new owners.
I must again congratulate Janet on her truly wonderful creative work here and wish that some of my very favourites could have been returning home with me. Along with each doll there was an interesting keep-sake card with photos of ‘before, during and after’ and with the original subject photo from the Sasha Puppen Book.
The equiste pale colouring of the doll here on the left was a true delight to see.
It was almost if she had been completely and softly ‘air-brushed’ in lilacs, blues and oranges. Definitely one of my favourites!
The 1979/80 white dress doll next to her was in almost sharp contrast….being bright and bolder and hadn’t been wigged on account of her beautiful original hair.
Another of my very favourites is this girl with her giant bow and wearing an original Trendon factory Velvet dress (but without the lace collar.) Just adore the pantaloons here. (She is unfortunately staying with Janet or would have been in my suitcase in an instant.
My friend Theresa O’Neill is the very lucky owner of this Pierot replica. His white chalk -like complection is so life like it’s almost unbelieveable and his poseability is fantastic.
The blonde doll in her dark smock has had her original hair styled just like the Studio Doll’s.
These two white dresses (particularly on the baby) were absolutely equiste.The baby bonnet was a nothing short of a ‘work of art.’
These two girls were another two of my ‘absolutely to die for’ favourites.
Again it can be seen from where Gotz got their 1990s Barbette/Barbara doll’s idea from.
Fire, another of Janet’s ‘keepers’ in his stunningly detailed costume.
A stunningly beautiful trio here. Faultless in their replication. All three are favourites of mine!
Apologies for the blurred photo below but thought that it was just too nice not to include. (Please correct me if I’m wrong but I think that I’m right in saying but is this the only Gotz face mould to be included in the collection?)
Fabulous costume on a fabulous doll.
Love the eye colouring and painting of the Duffle Lad.
Lovely Sun Hat model
….But it was this Little Prince standing by her that really stole my heart.
This Smart Girl’s outfit (front left) made from antique material with the lace inserts was gorgeous .
Great copy of Sasha Morgenthaler’s eye painting here.
And it was this interesting to see the Street Child’s roughly thrown together outfit by it’s side displaying the marked comparisons of the classes. Both these girl’s hair styles were beautifully styled.
This next Gypsy girl in her red dress was very dramatic and flambouyant in comparison.
This Extenlialist girl’s outfit below was a superb and very clever replica of Sasha’s original. Another favourite of mine and can’t understand having seen this doll from Sasha Morgenthaler’s sudio collection why Frido/Trendon didn’t produce more of the brunette-haired, blue eyed combinations.
It was great to see this girl in the farmpants as she must have indeed been the inspiration for the 1990’s Gotz Maria alongside the more ornate leather and bead clad Indian child..
The Twins were well liked with their slight facial differences and similar toning coloured clothing. (Reminded me of our own family’s twin girls.)
I’m sure that you will all have enjoyed seeing this wonderful unique collection of dolls as we were and look forward to seeing you here for some more posts on The Sasha Celebration Weekend which include the attending Sasha collectors and some of their dolls, the raffle and activities.
