Awe….What could possibly have made this darling little girl so sad? She looks like she is about to shed a tear and she’s trying awfully hard to control her tender feelings. Perhaps Papa has not come home tonight, or Mama has forgotten to pick her up from school. Whatever it is, this precious little cherub could benefit greatly from a loving hug. Will it be you who stems her tears and tucks her into bed? Whoever her new parent is, she will feel safe and warm in her new home. Will you be the one who cherishes her dearly and keeps her lovely original Sunday dress crisp and clean and her sweet ash blond original locks well groomed? This little girl will be loved and cared-for by all of your doll family. If you don’t own a K & R 201 "Marie" yet, this is a choice example of one of the most coveted character children produced by this prolific firm at the early part of the last century—circa 1910. Just fill out the purchase order, and she is yours!

OUR GUARANTEE: Why purchase from a small family business like ours, rather than a large scale auction house or vast public company? The decision to buy an antique is a serious one. Collecting is an extremely fun and rewarding process, but we know it can get expensive and, at times, stressful, so we want you to know that we truly appreciate your patronage and interest, thus, we've compiled a list of how we endeavor to be the best at what we do, to ensure that you come away from your purchase on cloud nine of doll heaven. Because every transaction, no matter how small, means a whole lot to us, we promise to always offer you:
~Personalized Service: If you have questions, we will respond to your emails or phone calls very promptly, and do everything we can to communicate effortlessly. We know that you deserve the very best service we can provide, and we will strive to give you a stellar experience from the moment you contact us the moment you open the box and beyond.
~Clear and Concise photographs: We try to post as many as 20 photographs of our items, especially for our most expensive dolls, compared to many other places that often fail to share more than 3-4 images of even extremely pricey dolls. Though the number of pictures we can post is limited, we anticipate your needs as a collector and try to photograph every pertinent detail. We want you to know every centimeter of the item you are purchasing backwards and forwards because we have nothing to hide, and will try to address everything we can in the condition report. Want more photos? Just ask. We will send them as soon as possible.
~Flexible Lay-aways: We are one of the only institutions in the business to offer 1 year layaway plans on $8000+ items, and we are proud to say that we've helped thousands of clients afford the dolls of their dreams over the years... And we have 250 lay-aways in progress right now! When we started offering lay-aways years ago, very few other venues for purchasing antique dolls had such an option- and we are proud to say that we offer some of the longest and most flexible plans in the business.
~35 Years of Experience: You simply can't beat the knowledge accrued by constant research, field work, international buying trips, and 35 years of experience. As many of our returning clients can attest to, we try to know all that there is to know about our beautiful treasures- and we want to share that knowledge with the doll world so that these stories and fine objects can be enjoyed for generations to come.
~A Sterling Reputation: Just take a quick scan of our feedback and see just how happy our clients are with our service and our reputation of excellence!
~Our Full Money-back Guarantee: Sometimes you just don't bond with a doll. That's why we offer a three day return privilege on every single item we send out. Even if you decide that the item you purchased is not the one for you, we will take it back within that period and send you a full refund. It's that simple. We promise you will be happy with your transaction with us, no matter the outcome.
