Welcome to the 44th Edition of the Doll Advertiser.
Dolls Houses are always of interest to me, and when I heard of Fort Hall, a large 1850 doll’s house with all its contents was coming up for sale at auction, and that it originally came from Bridlington, was an opportunity to bring Fort Hall ‘back home’. (see pages 32 & 33).
Papier mâché dolls are for a particular collector, and also china headed dolls. I do have a few of these in my own collection, which I bought many years ago when antique dolls were then very expensive. The wooden dolls are out of my range, but
nevertheless I would still like one with all its history (Pages 4-5).
Some of you may remember playing many hours with paper dolls; Lorna Currie has a large collection, and shows some examples (pages 26-29).
Barbie again can’t resist the movies and television – Kitturah tells us what dolls Mattel has produced (pages 38-41)
Happy Easter everyone!
