Edition Dolls Series
by Gary Sowatzka - Master
Doll Doctor and Artist
"Grumpy" Character doll from the past, this
doll was first made by the Schoenhut Toy Company in America in 1910.
Schoenhut produced them made out of wood, while German companies made a
doll similar to Grumpy made out of celluloid or painted bisque. Regardless
of the way they were made, they evoke an emotion from the doll collector
or owner that is second to none. For me, it reminded me of my beautiful
daughter when she was little and showed her stubborn little personality.
It has always been important to me, as with any artist, to work on something
that evokes an emotion to the observer. This carries over into my
artistry of doll restoration. This is the main reason I felt compelled
to do this limited edition of 50 singed and numbered Grumpies. I
hope you enjoy Grumpy as much as I enjoyed producing him.
Enjoy your Doll Collecting!
