Linda Carla ICSA doll
Linda Carla ICSA Doll. Celluloid doll with the arms of the first plastics. This doll came in my hands disassembled and without eyes. The rubber bands and the placement of a wig have been changed. The eyes are fixed. It measures about 48cm.
It has a slightly erased mark on the nape of the neck, it looks like the letters IC-SA. Attributed to the Iberica Commercial brand.
Linda Carla 50s.
In this case, Linda Carla 50s is a Celluloid doll. In particular, there are two measures of 45 and 50 cm.
To begin with, it is customary for this doll to have a natural hair wig. It is an articulated doll and it is from this model that other versions of “Linda” will be made, such as the mestizo, black, Hawaiian, etc …
The ICSA brand
IBÉRICA COMERCIAL, was founded in Barcelona in 1918. The company was created by the young Otto Katzenstein Schwarz, a German fully integrated into the Barcelona society of the time. He held the position of Chairman of the Board of Directors of “Ibérica Comercial” (ICSA) until his death in 1950.
In the brand a winged helmet of Hermes (Mercury in Roman mythology) appears in its initial logo, since this is the God of Alchemy, like Linda Carla ICSA Doll.
However, in 1935 they applied for the registration of the patent for “A PROCEDURE FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF DOLLS, BABYS, FIGURES, ANIMALS AND SIMILAR ITEMS, USING SPECIAL MOLDS WITH STEAM PRESSURE”. What we know today as a blow molding machine, which is used to manufacture all kinds of plastic objects and which at that time would be used with celluloid, since plastic would appear later, in the 1950s. .
Firstly, 1946 they were announced as “Fine Celluloid Factory”. In the 1950s, the dolls, “Linda”, “Luisito”, and especially the better-known “Merceditas de España”, were widely publicized, inspired by Otto’s own daughter, Mercedes, who would compete in popularity with the “Mariquita Pérez”, like Linda Carla ICSA Doll
Later in the early 70s, the company began to have difficulties marketing its dolls with the same success as in previous years and in 1976, we do not know exactly why, but the company stoped the manufacturing and selling of its products, although it continued to be officially registered. until 1980.
We probably can’t tell which was the first doll ICSA made, nor which was the last.
