Gotz Collectible Dolls
Götz is a German company with an American subsidiary based in the United States. The company today is run by the second-generation of the Götz family. 1950, when Marianne and Franz Götz founded Götz Puppenfabrik in Rodental. The first dolls were made of paper mache and were crafted with the help of five family members and sold directly to the public by Franz Götz. Götz dolls are still produced in Germany in one of the largest doll factories in the world. They produce several lines of dolls there--the hand-crafted dolls are made for play but are of high quality. They are created in association with doll artists. Each doll comes with a Götz bracelet, artist's signet and a certificate. The Artist Edition dolls are produced in limited or one-year productions.
