Sasha Morgenthaler's Dolls for Everyone


Baby Cara, Caleb, Sasha, Cora, and Gregor ~ Dolls by Sasha Morgenthaler, Made in England

Sasha Morgenthaler (1893-1975) was a Swiss artist who began making one-of-a-kind (OOAK) dolls in the 1940s... Reflective of the world’s children, Morgenthaler’s dolls are reminiscent of the diverse people encountered during her travels.
Except from my article, "Sasha Morgenthaler's Dolls for Everyone" in the January & February 2010 issue of Doll Castle News, pages 28-30. 

Doll Castle News is published bi-monthly.  Subscription to this publication, which covers all types of dolls, is $19.95 for 1 year or $5.95 for a single copy.

  1. Caleb is one of the few dolls I have longed for - outside the 1:6 scale. He just seems so adorably cute.

    Somewhere in my stuff, I might still have a brown pleather vest and matching pants with a purple and white vertical striped shirt for the boys. Possibly ;-}

  2. Hey D7ana -- let me know if you find the boy fashion. Poor Gregor's wool sweater has been attacked by moths!
