Kimport Dolls Map

CLICK IMAGE FOR CLOSE-UPS
– Kimport Dolls Map –
[ circa 1935 ]

This unique poster print is reproduced from the original Kimport Dolls Map which resides in the McKim Family Collection. The original was done in pen and ink and hand painted in watercolor by Aileen Franklin, a very dear friend of Grammy's who worked at both McKim Studios and Kimport Dolls.

The original painting hung in the Chrisman-Sawyer Bank in Independence for many years, with thumbtacks of all things! Thank goodness it was rescued from the dumpster by the McKim family after the Kimport auction in the mid 1980s. Nearly 80 years old, this wonderful piece of art has been on quite a journey…

Be sure to check out the close-ups, along with the wonderful art a bit of wear and tear from the map's incredible journey shows up as well. All the more endearing, I say…what a story it could tell!

– Betty Blue & Bobby Shaftoe –
Woman's World November, 1922

“Mrs. McKim is a designer of needlework for little folks. Her designs find instant popularity with children because, from her years of kindergarten teaching, she knows what will please them. Last fall, Woman's World published her “Circus Quilt,” the sales for which score in the thousands, and we are still receiving orders for them. She has designed these nursery rhyme quilts and pillows especially for Woman's World’s boys and girls.”

– Coon & Crane Pillows –
[ circa 1930 ]

"We christened the little pillows "Coon" and "Crane," and you'll pronounce them better yet when you find they are made in about an hour by simply sewing gay strips of wool felt onto the stamped background of monk's crash. This is a new weave, heavy like monk's cloth, which is perfect for the sturdier types of embroidery…"
