Candy by Rolanda Heimer for Zapf and Filipo a Dribble Baby (now Felicia) by Carin Lossnitzer for Gotz
Angelica and Aaron by Philip Heath/Gotz
Other former Gotz artists include Elissa Glassgold, Yoke Grobben, Ulrike Hutt, and Elizabeth Lindner.
From Zapf, lovely dark-skinned artist dolls by Bettina Feigenspan, Elissa Glassgold, and others have been offered.
No longer producing artist dolls, Gotz and Zapf play line dolls are still available. These are high quality dolls with sleep eyes, rooted or molded hair, usually made of vinyl with cloth bodies.
I took several headshots and full-view images of dolls manufactured in Germany by the two aforementioned companies and/or by German doll artists or artists who utilized these manufacturers to distribute their dolls. In addition, dolls by other German artists (Annette Himstedt, Heidi Plusczok, and Ruth Treffeisen) were photographed. These images can be viewed as a slideshow or individually by clicking here.
