Original Gotz Dolls Made in Germany

Marianne & Franz

gotz dolls

Franz & Marianne were handcrafted in Germany before the closing of the Gotz German factory.

These dolls were produced in limited quantity by Gotz in celebration of the Gotz Doll Company anniversary. The founders of Gotz Dolls were Franz & Marianne Gotz.

When the company was founded in 1950, Marianne handcrafted the dolls and Franz would go around town selling them from a wagon that he pulled with his bike.

(Please view the additional photos so that you can see the accessories that are included with these 2 dolls.)

In addition to the set of dolls pictured above, you will also receive a wooden toy bike and a wooden toy wagon, several little miniature dolls to put in the wagon, plus a bike hat for Franz.

Franz & Marianne are huggable and loveable and will bring years of joy to girls of all ages who love dolls.

Name: Franz & Marianne - Limited Edition 1000
Height: 13 inches
Body Type: Soft body, vinyl head, arms, legs

Terms/Information - When Gotz announced the closing of their German factory we stocked up on their dolls. When the dolls arrived here, they were immediately placed in our specially designed preservation storage facility. The air quality in this facility is monitored constantly and access is limited to trained personnel only.

To the best of our knowledge, Gotz no longer offers support for their dolls made prior to the closing of their German factory. For that reason, our Gotz products are sold as is and all sales are final.

There are not many new, original Gotz dolls available worldwide any longer. By purchasing your Gotz doll from Heirloom Sewing For Children, you can be sure it has been stored and protected in a manner befitting a treasured heirloom.

Protect your investment with our Acid Free Non Buffered Tissue Paper and our Archival Storage Boxes, large and roomy, perfect for most dolls. Feel free to print a copy of our doll storage guidelines.
