Through the Eyes of a Child
Albert Schoenhut brought out his line of dolls in 1911.
His ad in the March issue of Playthings displayed the incredible
poseability of his uniquely jointed dolls. The heads though bore
striking similarity to Kammer and Reinhardt's 101, Gebruder Heubach's
7622 and a model by Swaine and Co. A paper tag in the shape of a shield
identified the dolls as "Schoenhut All Wood Perfection Art
Schoenhut's dolls were a popular product in America, especially as war
approached and it became more difficult to obtain dolls from Europe.
Some Schoenhut collectors specialize in just these dolls. A
Schoenhut doll reference and identification resource can be found at Sandy Brooks'
beautiful Web site Through
the Eyes of a Child.
