Den Haan & Wagenmakers 1985.[/caption]For the dolls we used original paper maché bodies with elastic , porcelain hand painted heads and real hair wigs. Total length of the doll was 50 cm./20 inch.Each costume was dressed up by ladies and gentlemen doll makers from the region the doll represented. We delivered the dolls, jewelry and sometimes also the fabrics, but the dressing up was made in the appropriate place or region especially to prevent errors.The dolls with most jewelry like for example Rhineland/Katwijk of North-holland and Staphorst were the most precious examples.The intention was, with the exhibited dolls on the background, to sell the individual parts of the jewelry to the at that time, countless doll makers. The small silver ‘tasbeugeltjes’ ( clamps or clasps) were also very popular at the ‘pearl bag knitters’ by that time.By moving our company from Edam to Amsterdam in the early ‘90s, the production of this dolls collection and the silver jewelry ended. The designing and production of the Dutch chintzes especially for patchwork became our most important business.After many years have been stored in the studio of our former Silver Smith, we offer the complete collection of casting moulds, including some finished jewelry for sale.[caption id="attachment_5124" align="alignnone" width="302"] Last catalogue Dutch costume jewelry for dolls 1980.[/caption][caption id="attachment_5121" align="alignnone" width="300"] North - and South Holland.[/caption][caption id="attachment_5130" align="alignnone" width="300"] Zeeland[/caption][caption id="attachment_5115" align="alignnone" width="300"] Volendam, Urk en Staphorst[/caption][caption id="attachment_5127" align="alignnone" width="300"] General for the Netherlands.
