While we are on the Subject -Paper Dolls and 18th c. China

Here is a preview of things to come; this link is for 19th c. paper dolls. This is the gallery, with free printables.

Also, go to the Old Pretenders Site, keyword will get you there, for more photos and information on the Queen Anne type dolls they make and restore.

Also during the 18th c., Meissen figures were very popular. Max von Boehn's book, Dolls and Puppets, Dolls as published by Dover, has excellent information. China heads and half figures have been attributed to the 18th, but the Meissen or Nymphenburg China head has been questioned as well.
