Doll/Baps/Mary Mary Quite Contrary/Wartime Germany

$69.00

Mary, Mary here is a real cutie! She is a Baps doll, make in Germany between the 30's and 50's by Edith Von Arps who started selling them door to door and then sold them at an Army Base and in the shops around the town. Because she was a small company and sewing by hand, even with a few women helping her there aren't a lot of these dolls around anymore, making them highly collectible. I have recently lowered the price.

Mary is 4" tall and made out of wire covered in cloth. Her dress, hat and arms are felt. Her face is handpainted and her hair is cotton floss. She has hard little shoes.

She's in good vintage condition except that she is missing her rake and felt flowers. Her hands are folded in a way you can see she was holding it at one time. Her clothes are a little worn but all the stitches and in perfect shape.

Payments

Payment must be recieved prior to shipping. I fulfill your order within 24 hours after receiving your order M-F. If for some reason, I am unable to ship with in 2 business days, I will let you know so you can decide if it can wait, however, I strive never to do that. I do not usually work the weekend so if you order something Friday nite, it will most likely not ship until Monday.

Shipping from United States

I use standard shipping costs for different size items. In reality it may be more to ship or may be a little less. What you see is what you get & I believe my prices reflect that and are worth it. Whatever shipping cost is on the item is what you pay. With the cost of different boxes etc. it just makes sense to use a flat fee for certain items. I don't add the cost of mailing products to the item, I depend on my shipping costs to include that. I have had instances when my international shipping has been way off, and if that is the case, I do refund that part of the shipping cost.

Returns and exchange details

I am a fair and reasonable person. If something is damaged, I will refund your money or allow you to exchange. I will send you a prepaid return for the damaged item if this is the case.
