Maxi is the latest creation of famed German artist, Rotraut Schrott.


The idea for Maxi was borne out a very old tradition of German doll makers. She was modeled after Rotraut's own daughter and represents a traditional style that is not easy to find. Maxi has a very ethereal and distant look giving her a sense of eternal beauty, a perennial wisdom, and a subtle "antique mystique" rarely seen in children today. Her sculpting is exquisite, very realistic, and true to life. Her demeanor and poise adds to her charm.

Maxi is constructed of the finest quality natural-look HardCast® Vinyl. Her natural style armatures allow her arms and legs to be positioned in many poses at the same time keeping her vision in a straight-on direction. She was made to be a sitter, contemplating the world and in no big hurry. Her presence in any home adds a certain quietude and a spot of sunshine to any room, bringing back the old world charm that disappeared two or three generations back.


Maxi is one of a rare breed of dolls that uses genuine precision made European glass eyes. These are expensive, but well worth the additional cost to add that extra sense of realism and beauty. These eyes are all handmade using both classic and space-age materials to produce an effect that is as lifelike and natural as has ever been seen on a doll. Each of these is thus a unique piece of art by itself, creating an added dimension and sense of presence to Maxi which makes us feel that she is definitely alive. Her eyes are framed by the use of attractive hand set eyelashes.


Maxi's dress and hat are designed in the classic "French Antique" style. Made from rich silk-look fabrics and fancy double-faced satin ribbons with tiny insertion laces throughout, she is truly a beautiful feast for the eyes. Her hat is a pure symphony of pinks and satins trimmed with European-style laces. Her dress is made of expensive laces and trims as well and has taken many hours to sew. She is wearing expensive hand crocheted stockings and enchanting pink leather-like shoes. Truly a veritable feast for the eyes and for the soul.


Although not previously announced, the special boxes holding these 500 Maxis have been hand signed by Fredericka Lam, a co-founder of the company. You will find her signature on the inside of the cardboard insert protecting Maxi in her box. This signature is quite rare with any of our dolls and is usually only reserved for the first few dolls off the production line, called Artist Proofs, making those dolls worth quite a lot more in value (at least $200 more in retail value over the original price because of their rarity).


Maxi comes with a doll stand and has her own unique Certificate of Ownership and a special hangtag specifying that she is one of a very limited group of 500 dolls.
