Dolls That Speak From The Heart - Handmade Wood Dolls By European Artist Elisabeth Pongratz
Since 1979, the all-wood Pongratz doll has captured the hearts of doll collectors while remaining virtually unchanged since its inception! Inspired by the Munich Art Doll movement of the early 20th century, Elisabeth's dolls are delicately handcarved and hand-painted in a simplistic fashion - very similar to dolls by Sasha Morgenthaler and Kathe Kruse - with a sweetness that tugs at your heart. The all-wood dolls are fully jointed using a unique spring mechanism specially designed by Elisabeth and her husband, Wolf. Her soft-bodied babies are filled with sand for a sturdy yet cuddly feel. Because of their handcrafted nature, a very small number of dolls are created each year. Elisabeth Pongratz dolls speak from the heart.
