Silver jewelry for traditional costume dolls, collection Den Haan & Wagenmakers.

In connection with our former specialization in traditional Dutch costume jewelry, we came up at that time with a doll line for 14 different Dutch traditional costumes


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 little boy from Marken was the most popular one because of his color full outfit and his long blond curls. Boys of Marken were wearing a flowered indigo skirt up till the age of 6 years. (Photograph down below in the middle.)

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 for a purse ) 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.
