Item details

Most darling tiny fox figure, missing 1 full leg, 2 partial legs, tail, and part of an ear. Teeny...measures about 1" long by about 15/16" high.

These dolls and figurine parts were dug up at old doll factories around Thuringia in Germany. They were the reject pieces which were thrown out or, so I've read, piled under floor boards and inside walls for insulation.

Each one is unique and they make for wonderful metaphors and symbolic figures in art work. They are precious just on their own.

They date to somewhere probably between the 1860s and 1930s. Many are marked Germany and/or have number stamped on their backs. They all have varying degrees of damage (missing limbs/parts, cracks, chips, worn paint)as well as manufacturing flaws such as bubbles in the glaze, etc. They have all been cleaned to some degree, but many still have dirt and other soiling in crevices and inside. Some have spots of hard to remove buildup of something that reminds me of barnacles on a shell or a ship--lichen of some sort? Some also have some rust spots. I think if you worked at these with the right product, you could remove that sort of thing. I'll try to point out anything not obvious and out of the ordinary, but otherwise, the above mentioned things are to be expected on all the dolls that I sell.

I try to show photographs of items in my hand for a better idea of size, but if I don't have room, you can email me for one. In any case, please always carefully note the size given so there are no surprises.

Estimated Shipping
Shipping to
Zip or postal code

Shipping for most domestic items will be via first class mail.

Insurance would be additional based on the final value of the package and post office rates. Once a package has entered the postal system, I cannot be held responsible for shipping time, loss, or damage. I suggest insuring packages valued at more than 20 dollars. You must contact me before paying if you'd like to insure your package so that I may send you an adjusted invoice.

I generally ship within 3 business days, but I do have other responsibilities, and it sometimes might take longer. If you are concerned about shipping time, please email and I will be sure to ship immediately.

I do combine shipping. My listings have set combined shipping rates for US orders based on the weight and size of the item. Sometimes if you order a number of items, especially very tiny items, the total shipping comes out far too high. Rest assured if the shipping cost comes out at much more than I actually pay, I will refund the difference upon shipment.

International shipping costs from the US have gone way up. I do not have combined shipping prices set for this reason. However, if you contact me with the items you're interested in purchasing I can give you a combined shipping cost and adjust the listings for you. Otherwise, if you pay full shipping on multiple items and it turns out to be excessive, I will automatically refund the excess portion.


Prompt payment is appreciated.

Returns & exchanges

I will only refund when the item has been grossly misrepresented by me or damaged due to fault of my own. If I do agree to a refund you must return the item to me within 14 days of receipt in the same condition it was in when sold. Shipping costs will not be reimbursed.

Buyer should be aware before buying that most of the items I sell are vintage or older and will have a certain amount of expected wear and visible age. I make every effort to represent my items honestly and clearly. Please read full descriptions, view photos carefully, and carefully check sizes on measuring tape. You can reduce the zoom on your screen to get a better idea of actual size.

Additional policies

Please note that I recycle shipping materials as much as possible. I don't think it's responsible or economical to throw out bubble wrap and peanuts and boxes when they can be used again. I make an effort to send a clean and neat package, but my priority is getting your item to you in good condition, rather than that it is in fancy packaging that looks pretty which will 9 times out of 10 just be thrown out.

I also do not include a printed invoice as I think most people just throw them out. If you would like a printed invoice included, just let me know and I will put one in.
