SCHOENHUTS

PRESENTED BY JADOLL

The Schoenhut Company started making dolls in 1911.  These early dolls were called "The Graziano Year".  The carved hair boys had numbers starting with 200.  This example is a 16/201.

    The carved hair girls had numbers starting with 100.  This pair are a 14/102 (Dorothy Jayne)  and 16/102 (Haddasah).

  This happy little girl, Susan,  is a 16/101

    Another pouty face carved hair is Prudence Virtue, #14/105.

    This shy little pair are the smallest of the Schoenhuts, at 11 inches.  The one on the left is an 11/108 and the one on the right (Molly)  is an 11/108W (for wigged)

 

  Girls with wigs have numbers starting with 300.  This is number 16/300.

 

  Emma Kate is #16/301.  I think she has one of the sweetest faces.

 

  Some of the hardest to find Schoenhuts were modeled after German bisque dolls. The original of this one is the K * R 101.  Her number is 16/302. I call her Marie, because that is the name of the German one.  I have repainted this one. 

 

  The most common is the 308. Common, maybe, but you won't see many prettier than this one (Patience Virtue).  14/308

 

  One of the largest Schoenhuts is 22".  This is Rebekkah, # 22/308

 

  Sophie Lynne Rose is a number 14/310.  She has what is refered to as a "bee stung mouth".

    This hard to find number is 14/311 (Mary Elizabeth Holiday).

 

      The boys with wigs have numbers in the 400's. This one is the male version of the 300, and is #403 (John Henry).

 

  This is Matthew Gilbert, #19/405, with Haddasah, #16/102.

    Later the idealized, pretty faced dolls, called "dolly faces" became very popular.  This is a large, 21" dolly face who lives at Rooth's house.  She is # 316.

 

  This girl also lives with Rooth.  She is also a dolly face, but with sleep eyes.  Her number is 317.

 

  Here is another 317, all original, and near perfect.  Picture "borrowed" from ebay!

 

  This little girl hasn't arrived yet, but Rooth and I were lucky enough to acquire a pair of sister 110W's.  They are 21" tall.
