Here comes a beautiful old German vintage Kathe Kruse doll girl, the famous “Mimerle” (it was the nickname of one of Kathe Kruse’s daughters, and the doll might be named after her) with her long blond braided hair, produced in 1996 as you can see in the photographs of the dolls feet. The date of birth stamp and the “Kathe Kruse” makers mark stamp are clearly to be seen. Our old Kruse girl comes with all her original clothes, makers name tag, original box and is in excellent never played with mint condition! The box has a little ding though. Our vintage Kathe Kruse girl doll is of the “35H” type, until 1955 this doll was called “doll IX”, or “The little German Child”, first produced in 1929, from 1955 on the name changed to “35H”, meaning doll stands 35 cm / 13 ¾ inches tall.
Our old Kathe Kruse doll here has a cloth body, made of tricot fabric & stuffed with pre - formed foam body parts, as they are generally made since 1977, before that the Kruse doll bodies were made of nettle fabric & hand stuffed. Dolls legs are jointed; the arms are fully moveable, as with all Kruse dolls.
Vintage Kathe Kruse girl dolls swivel head is made of plastics, as always since 1955 (before the heads were made of fabric, see our other KK dolls listed in our store!). Kruse doll has a fine blond human hair wig, with braids. The wig is fixed to the head as is usual with this type of KK dolls.

The features of our dark blue-eyed old Kathe Kruse doll girl are delicately hand painted and very pretty! Head is not only moveable from left to right, but also a bit askew.

Kathe Kruse dolls are famous for a reason; they are not only the most skillfully handmade dolls I have ever come across, they are of such high quality & natural appearance, that I well remember the moment, many years ago, when I actually held my first original old Kathe Kruse doll in my hands – it was a moving moment! This may seem ridiculous to some people, but…I do adore Kathe Kruse as a woman & an artist & I read a lot of biographies about her & work. Her products, these unique dolls, hold more than a sentimental value for me; they are genuine works of art, every single one, even until today, even if material & production methods have changed a lot since 1910 when Kathe Kruse came out with her first dolls. Kathe Kruse - for me she was a truly creative soul who made a real, a significant change in our world, not only for children, but for every human being capable of feeling beauty in this world!

*Please notice: This vintage Kathe Kruse doll does not belong in the hands of small children; she may not fulfil the safety standards for toys in our time. So old Kathe Kruse doll is not meant as a toy, but a collector’s item for the hands of adults for display & decoration only!
