ABOUT BAITZ DOLLS:
The Austrian doll company Baitz, was founded in 1905 by Roman and Elisabeth (Lilli) Baitz.
They made folk art character dolls with wired armature bodies. Lilli Baitz sculpted the doll heads and commissioned a family of artists, sculptors and dressmakers living near Salzberg, Austria, to complete the dolls.
The Baitz Company always strived to be as historically accurate as possible, in their representations of the traditional costumes of each region, state or province.
Baitz dolls have stuffed bodies that are wired for posing and wrapped with muslin/cotton, facilitating the pinning of their clothes, to their bodies. Their arms and hands are made of felt, making the dolls appear as if they are wearing mittens. The heads of earlier, older dolls are composition. Their hair is mohair, shaped and placed into different hairdos.
