I wanted to share this family photo of dolls made by my grandmother, Maria Erdos with the community. Location: probably Frankfurt, Germany, but it could also be Munich, Berlin, or Vienna, all cities she lived in around that time.

Beautiful dolls. Grandma really knew her Art Nouveau and her appreciation shows. Did she make them as a hobby or did she sell them also? Thank  you for sharing her appreciation of art and her talent.

I don't really know whether she sold any, but here's another photo:

Beautiful work, Are there any of her dolls still around in the family?
Only one that I know of.
Whoever has it, hold on to it tight. They are beautiful and can never be replaced. Just like a grandmother it is priceless.
