Anziehpuppen beim ZVAB finden


ZVAB steht für Zentrales Archiv für antiquarische Bücher und gehört seit 2011 über AbeBooks zu Amazon.

Es ist eine gute Möglichkeit ältere und gebrauchte Romane und Fachliteratur weltweit online ausfindig zu machen und zu erwerben. Bisher kaufte ich hier nur sehr selten Papierpuppenschätze. Die Preise für Anziehpuppen sind auch oft richtig gepfeffert bei den Antiquariaten, die hier ihre Angebote einstellen. Und niemals vergessen, dass oft außer den Versandkosten auch noch der Zoll seinen Anteil haben möchte, wenn du in den USA bestellst!


Doch im Augenblick ist das Angebot dort geradezu erschlagend.

UND, mein Herz hat fast ausgesetzt, denn es werden gerade einige antike und seltene Raritäten und auch wunderschöne handgemalte Unikate angeboten.

Ich weiß nicht, wessen grandiose Sammlung da versteigert wird, aber du findest im Moment, besonders in den USA, unglaublich schöne und seltene Anziehpuppen, die du - so wie ich - höchstwahrscheinlich noch nie gesehen hast und wahrscheinlich auch nie wiedersehen wirst, wenn sie demnächst wieder irgendwo in einer Privatsammlung verschwinden.


Du findest beim  ZVAB  natürlich nicht nur teure alte Bücher und Anziehpuppen, sondern auch oft aktuelle, noch lieferbare Titel aus dem In- und Ausland.

Heute muss ich dir unbedingt einige der handgemachten Schönheiten zeigen, die du gerade über das ZVAB aus den USA erwerben kannst. Leider handelt sich um richtig teure Papierantiqutäten, deren Preise sich (auch ohne Versandkosten und Einfuhrsteuer) zwischen 80 bis über 3000 Euro bewegen! Doch aus alten Autionskatalogen weiß ich, dass besonders alte Ankleidepuppen mit exzellent gestalteten historischen Kostümen oft horrende Preise erzielen. Aber mach dir doch selbst ein Bild, bewundere diese exquisiten Einzelstücke und schau dir die Preisvorstellungen beim ZVAB an. Ich hatte dort übrigens ganz gezielt nach handmade paper dolls gesucht und war dann völlig überwältigt.

Historic watercolors paper doll costumes

Originalbeschreibung beim ZVAB:

A collection of seventeen hand-drawn watercolor costume designs for a paper doll, plus one additional unfinished design in pencil. The costumes, complete with headpieces, wigs, and other accessories, are well designed and skillfully colored, giving this handmade set a polished and professional look. The costumes are laid into a notebook, with the title of each design and the number of pieces carefully inked onto the pages. Covering a wide range of activities and locales, the sets include a Spartan virgin, a belle in the year 1775, a Florentine lady in a Carnival dress, a Quaker, Countess Hamilton in Charles's reign, a Florentine peasant, a Christian woman of Smyrna, an Otaheitan girl, and a lady in a riding habit. The unfinished costume, which is sketched in pencil and cut out, shows an outfit of trousers, a long military-style coat, and a top hat. There is also an extravagantly-adorned bonnet that may have been the start of another outfit, since it does not seem to match the other unfinished pieces. There is no doll, but that is likely because the set remains unfinished; the presence of an unfinished costume as well as the lack of tabs on the costume pieces suggests that the project was never completed. The notebook is red with gold trim and has holes in the front and the back cover for green cloth ties, cleverly secured by red heart-shaped cutouts inside the covers. Two hand-decorated paper labels adorn the notebook. On the back, the initials F. C. are surrounded by a laurel wreath. The front has a handwritten poem explaining that the changeability of woman, of which men so often complain, comes only from a "pure wish to please." Below the poem, in bold capitals, is the phrase "ECCE SIGNUM!" which means, "Here is the proof." The final page of the notebook is folded such that it could serve as a holding place for loose pieces, though one side is now detached. Cover worn, as expected, and the ties and sections of trim are missing. The pages, however, are clean and sound, and the costume designs are in fine condition. ( Wohl um 1810 entstanden und, wenn ich es richtig verstehe, 17 Kostüme OHNE PUPPE???)
