IMPORTANCE NOTICE: The Sasha doll production came to an end on December 31st 2001. The following letter was received from Gotz on 17th July 2001 and it is with sadness we share it with you:
“It is with great regret that we must inform you that as of 2002, Gotz Puppenmanufaktur will no longer produce Sasha Dolls. We have come to an agreement with the community of heirs of the artist, Sasha Morgenthaler, to end the licence contract at the end of this year. A difference of opinion on how closely the dolls should resemble the originals has resulted in a parting of ways. It is the philosophy of Gotz to reproduce all collections as close to the originals as possible. The Morgenthaler family does not want this resemblance. Unfortunately, a compromise could not be reached. We do understand and sympathize with the disappointment of all Sasha lovers, especially knowing what a great success the actual collection was. It is our recommendation to all admirers of Sasha Dolls to look into the the availability of the remaining collection. This decision is final and there will be no renewal of the contract.”
Abceta Playthings Ltd will continue to offer Sasha Dolls from all productions, as long as our stock is available. Please let us know if you are looking for a particular Sasha Doll and we will do our best to find one for you.
