Good evening everyone, I am so pleased to tell all of you I have finally started to catalog my modern doll molds. I have hundreds to do so watch for many more pages to come. I am starting with The Doll Artworks. During the hey-day of modern doll-making, during the late 80’s and 90’s and into the 21st century, The Doll Artworks was one of the major producers of life-like children and baby dolls molds available for doll-makers around the world. I have not started on the shopping cart buttons as of yet, but at least I have a start to listing all these wonderful dolls available from Land of Oz Dolls in soft-fired greenware. Here is a link to the start of the catalog: https://landofozdolls.net/modern-doll-sfgw-catalog/the-doll-artworks/ Soft-fired greenware has been fired to cone 019 and is ready to clean, fire, paint and assemble. The finished dolls shown are examples of the finished product made by The Doll Artworks and are not for sale. They are examples only. Most dolls from The Doll Artworks consist of head, shoulder plate, arms and legs in porcelain with a cloth body. There are a few exceptions.

Christmas Special October 20th through December 1st, 20% off soft-fired greenware for “The Carolers” I have the molds for the large 27″ Dawn 24″ Beth, and 22″ Lori, and also the smaller size Dawn, Beth, Lori, Angelica, and Rosie.

Today is the Day New Website Revealed!!! You can Win this “Cherie Limoge” by Connie Zink

Cherie Limoge

Well, today is the day I am introducing you to my new website landofozdolls.net. If you read my two previous blog posts here on the website you will have a little bit better understanding as to why this website has came about. As a celebration of my new website I will be starting my “Summer Doll Giveaway” Promotion! This is not the first time I have given a doll away in the past year and it won’t be the last. I have been blessed with such joy, watching the winners of the dolls learn that they have won, and also have greatly appreciated the photos submitted from the lucky new mamans. I will share the winners of the last several promotions with you soon in an upcoming post. The rules are different for this “Summer Doll Giveaway Promotion” than what it has been from the previous “Giveaways”. This time I need to promote the establishment of this new website before I discontinue the use of my other websites. So the rules this time are pretty simple. There is a box on the right hand side of this page where you can subscribe to my posts by email. From this subscriber list, the winner of this beautiful “Cherie Limoge” Bleuette “Friend” will be chosen. You only need to enter your email address, hit the subscribe button, then you will be sent a confirmation email. Once confirmed, you are entered in the drawing. This is the only way you can enter the promotion this time. Everyone is only allowed the one entry. Now, let me introduce you to “Cherie Limoge” by Connie Zink. “Cherie Limoge” will go to the lucky winner at 10:00 PM Sunday night, September 8th 2013. She comes complete with wooden base doll stand, underwear, shoes and socks, and her one-piece navy blue and white striped dress and blue jacket (jacket included because the evenings will be cooler by then). She also has a lovely little patriotic basket included with her. Total value: $350.00.
