Anyone for tennis? Caco dolls' house tennis player dolls.
This four dolls are about 2.1/2in. high, they come in their original boxes with Harrods price labels, 1950/60s. They are made by the German company, also sometimes called Caho. These are very unusual as they have cloth heads, just like Grecon dolls. Infact I sold one pair on eBay and I was told by someone that they were Grecon dolls and not made by Caco. I can't believe this, because they are so mint and the boxes even show tennis players on the side, I suspect for a short time Caco tried making cloth headed dolls, to compete with the popular Grecon dolls in the UK. I have shown them to Olivia Bristol, who is well respected in the doll and dolls' house world and she agrees. I would love to hear your thoughts and experience about these dolls, do you know other cloth head Cacos?
