53-Year Old Doll Company Announces End To Production Gotz dolls, considered by some doll collectors to be the first company to produce a manufactured Artist Doll when they manufactured the dolls of famous doll artist Sasha Morgenthaler starting in 1965, announced this week that they are going out of business. Difficult Economy and Dropping Collector Demand
They are ceasing operations in the face of the difficult economy and a continuing drop, worldwide, in demand for high-end collectible dolls. According to a recorded message at the New York facility in Baldwinsville, New York, the decision to shut down was based upon "ongoing consumer caution both in Europe and in the United States, as well as the doll market's falling product turnover for the last three years." The recording also said that the remaining dolls will be sold through a special sales program with Gotz current retailers.
