It seems along time since the last issue, and yet far away from when the Doll Advertiser began in 1993 as just a Fair Guide. Over the years Doll Advertiser has developed into a Magazine which has proved to be popular and loved by many doll collectors
I appreciate all those letters and emails from collectors or just general enquiries. Some emails ask me about their dolls and valuations. Although we anticipate our antique dolls to be great value, just because we have had them for many years, or even passed down to us, not every doll has that value we expect. It is difficult to value a doll by a photo as there are many things to look for. I would suggest a proper doll valuation should be made in person with an expert who can advise in more detail.
A particular article on Anne Frank’s doll by Lorna Currie in this issue will be of interest to many, not only for doll collectors, but part of our history for others. Lots of other interesting features in this issue, and as usual, there is always “a little something” that you don’t expect!
