History of German Dolls

Elizabeth Parsons also loves German doll parts and has some wonderful creations on her blog website and etsy shop Take a look at the history of these amazing dolls here:

Here is a quote from Elizabeth's blog, "I love the story behind them - in the late 1800's and early 1900's there were many German doll factories. When making the dolls in molds, there were always rejects. These rejects were tossed into a large wood bin. When the bin got full, a worker would take them outside and bury them as a way to get rid of them. They would return the empty bin and keep filling it- over and over again, over many years. Fast forward to now- the old abandoned doll factories are being explored by the locals and they are finding the doll parts."

I just love the dirt, rust and imperfections and can't wait to make more dolls.
