One of a kind arts dolls by Klaudia Gaugier OOAK

Announcement    Welcome to my little gallery!
I like to describe my dolls with the words by Bruno Schultz from "A Treatise on Mannequins": "There is no dead matter. Lifelessness is only a disguise behind which hide unknown forms of life". That is how I think about them :)

Shipping a doll I have spent many weeks working on and to which I am still emotionally connected, is as stressful for me, as it might be for you to buy something you have never seen with your own eyes. Let's send positive energy both ways :)

I ship to your Etsy address unless otherwise requested.

I ship within 3 working days upon confirmed payment and your order will arrive at your doorstep within 4 to 21 working days of shipping depending on the country of delivery.

Expected delivery time:
EU: 4 to 14 business days
USA and Canada: 7 to 21 business days
Everywhere in the world: 9 to 21 business days

Please note that the expected delivery times may vary due to many circumstances including customs delays. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
In case your parcel has not arrived within the time specified for your country, counted from the date of shipment, please contact me so I can find out the reason for the delay.
Standard shipping is registered and tracked. I will send you the tracking code that will allow you to track your shipment.

Your purchase will be carefully packed, so no damage can occur. I dispatch my dolls securely packaged in bubble wrap, airbags for packaging, gift tissue paper and a cardboard box.

Standard Shipping does not cover for loss or damage during shipping. In the unlikely event a parcel gets lost or damaged during Standard Shipping, Horka Dolls cannot be held responsible for damages.

Choose a shipping upgrade to cover the costs and protect your shipment from loss or damage.

The most important thing for me is that you would be happy with the work of art you have purchased. If that doesn't happen, please contact me via Etsy or e-mail: klaudia [!at] horkadolls.com
I am sure we will find a good solution.
