Product Details

This reference gallery focuses on Bradley's Korean cloth-faced dolls with individual fingers. It also contains Korean Bradley-type makers with plastic, mitten, or stump hands.

These Bradley Commissioned Dolls, often called Faux-Bradley dolls, were made in Korea and Hong Kong and tagged with their distributor's address.

Bradley dolls were made of lightweight foam over a wire frame, covered with a nylon stockinet skin. Legs were long and thin, with hands featuring individual nylon-wired fingers or plastic molded ones. The faces were exactingly painted, and they wore lavish wigs of very silky synthetic, often featuring sausage curls.

These ladies were produced in many sizes and dressed in simple fashions to lavish, frilly, synthetic fabric gowns. Today, well-preserved Bradley dolls are sought after by collectors for their delicate and unique beauty.

Also called "Kawaii dolls."
Definition of 'Kawaii':

  • 1. denoting a Japanese artistic and cultural style that emphasizes the quality of cuteness, using bright colors and characters with a childlike appearance. Noun. 2. (in Japanese art and culture) the quality of being lovable or cute.

Also called "Shōwa Dolls"
Definition of 'Shōwa:'

  • The Shōwa era was the period of Japanese history corresponding to the reign of Emperor Shōwa (commonly known in English as Emperor Hirohito) from December 25, 1926, until his death on January 7, 1989.

Conclusions and findings:

 

  • Handwritten tags stating a doll's country of origin are usually just best guesses. Keep those tags intact!
  • Bradley Korea Dolls, usually made with mitten hands, were sometimes made with plastic arms and hands.
  • Japanese Bradley Sukito dolls made in the elaborate French gown style are the most well-preserved specimens because many have been preserved in glass cases.

I lovingly hand-make each OOAK all-cloth art doll; each one special in its own way and so much fun to pose. I hope you'll find something here to put a smile on your face.
