"Horsman Dolls !

The Vinyl Era!


The Horsman Doll Company was founded by E. I. Horsman in New York, in 1865. Literature has it that Mr. Horsman was a member of an old German toymaking family and he began by importing the finest European doll heads and bodies and assembling them in the USA. Horsman invented "fairy skin" in 1946 and in 1954 "super flex" bodies so the dolls could bend, kneel and sit alone. The Horsman process for synthetic rubber and early vinyl have a reputation for defying disintegration and retain their beauty and condition right to today!

The first and only collector's guide offering comprehensive coverage of all Horsman dolls from the vinyl era of American playthings, 1950 to the present. Included are more than 700 illustrations showing Horsman dolls from this period.
It's a great reference that will help you identify your Horsman doll, drawing upon 50 years of original catalog pictures and photographs of wonderful dolls belonging to experienced Horsman collectors. Current value information for more than 500 different Horsman dolls from nearly six decades is provided.
Learn the background of some of Horsman's most popular dolls, including Poor Pitiful Pearl, Cindy, and Thirsty Walker.
An informative chapter about caring for your vinyl dolls to ensure they survive for new generations to love and collect.
Horsman Dolls by Don Jensen is a charming and colorful look at a remarkable and varied maker from the 1950s to the present day.  The Horsman company may be lesser known than some doll companies but they've released many a Pop Culture gems over the years. Notable examples include "Poor Pitiful Pearl", "Cindy", "Betsy McCall", Numerous Ventriloquist dolls and even some cool action figures sized dolls like Angie Dickinson as "Police Woman". Of course the company has a long history well before 1950 but their offerings from then until now easily fill this full size volume. The guide starts with an extensive identification guide which not only uses mold marks but also uncommon, but helpful, methods such as whether the doll is battery operated, walks, has an unusual facial expression, etc.. This is followed by care instructions, alphabetical value ranges and more. With all of the information you need now in hand, the bulk of the guide is dedicated to detailing the dolls themselves. Full color pictures, along with dating information and descriptive text pack the remainder of the guide. Bottom line - By the time you finish reading this guide you will be well versed not only with the Horsman company itself but arguably with the most fun period of doll development and the varied offerings from that period.

Horsman made many celebrity dolls including Disney and because of that this guide will also appeal to general Collectibles dealers as well as doll fanatics and dealers.
