Spiegel 1942 Horsman Little Queen of the Skaters doll (Horsman Bright Star doll)

Spiegel 1942 Horsman doll

Little Queen of the Skaters Doll

Joseph Spiegel founded the Spiegel Company of Chicago, Illinois in 1865 selling home furnishings.  By 1905 Spiegel was offering a variety of merchandise by mail order catalog.

 

We have no idea exactly when Spiegel began offering dolls and toys in their catalog, however here are some Spiegel Catalog Ads for antique to vintage dolls beginning in 1933, that we have found, that may help to identify a doll, along with the original price for the doll. 

 

As with many doll distributor's, doll names may be specific or exclusive to Spiegel and often the actual doll maker is unnamed.
