ARI dolls rubber and plastic

I want to go back to the history of the ARI dolls company again. The interest of these cute ARI dolls does not pass with time.

Let’s have a look at the photos from the catalogs that the company produced. But first I would like to show new photos of my dolls.<img src="ari dolls " alt="creativhook collection" />

The company produced a lot of dolls from different materials and the collections include not only well-known rubber dolls.

A lot of dolls made of spiky plastic and the oldest of ceramics. In molds of these ancient dolls in our time very successfully produce replicas. Modern materials allow new life and history to the most popular dolls.

In this small photo with ARI catalogs, despite the poor quality, you can see how varied the range was then. On one of the avenues, you can read a large inscription “ARI. Advertising ceramics”.

It can be stated unequivocally that the production of ceramic dolls took place earlier than 1946, as the author at that time was already in the Western Zone (but this is the subject for a separate conversation concerning two well-known companies producing dolls at once). On two photo postcards can see ARI ceramic dolls in sets (“beach” and “kitchen”).

Some dolls are rarely found in puppet collections. Perhaps you have them and it would be interesting to learn from you.

Three plastic dolls (model 1011) – such are found with baby legs, mine – with straight legs. There is a triangular mark on the back and the inscription GERMANY 1011. Height 9cm.
I have this doll in my collection.

Another cute creature, 11cm. The doll is made of rubber, the head and body – hollow, the head number 3418, the body – 3388 (under the triangle mark).

I tried to correct the known pages of the ARI dolls catalog a little. Look at the dolls’ images and information. Perhaps you will find exactly your doll in the images.

I like all my ARI dolls, but the smallest rubber dolls do not leave me indifferent.

Without a doubt, the most popular is 7 cm tall rubber dolls.

You can read the beginning of the history of ARI dolls creation in this article.

Ari dolls, history and a second youth.

Miniature porcelain doll

I have good news for miniature porcelain doll lovers. Today you don’t have to spend a lot of money to buy expensive vintage dolls.

You can choose for your collection of dolls this modern porcelain doll with cute faces. Such modern dolls are handmade by talented masters by ancient patterns. Pay attention to the fine facial features and beautifully shaped hair.  The material this doll is made of is pleasant to the touch. 

I want to present to you a small new collection of amazing dresses from the finest silk. The dolly is 2 1/3 inches tall. Handles and legs are movable and there are painted black slippers on the legs. Any of the dresses on offer can be bought at the store shortly.

A gently blue dress for your doll is a great choice.

As my clients say, the most popular and favorite color of doll dresses is gently cream. It tones the doll’s face and makes it a miniature Lady from a past era.

 What do lovers of little dolls like best? It’s the ability to dress them in different dresses, that is, to have a wide choice.

Without a doubt, white is the color of celebration and youth. Even the oldest porcelain doll in a white dress will be beautiful and you will forget about her age.

And I also want to remember a beautiful time in the 50s and 60s. The fashion of that time will suit such tiny dolls. Bright colors and fluffy skirts are surprisingly good for porcelain miniature dolls.

I will share with you a link to an amazing site from the UK. It was a discovery for me in miniature art. At the beginning of my journey, I only bought knitting needles there and did not pay attention to the other range. I was surprised by the number of miniature porcelain dolls presented on this site. There was no limit to the delight when I received the parcel with such beautiful dolls. I recommend everyone to visit the site and choose the best miniature dolls for yourself.
