Dr. E's Doll Museum Blog: October Happenings

See below; click on the link to subscribe to Antique Doll Collector Magazine, if you like.  I found a cache of antique and vintage Japanese Bisque jointed dolls, penny dolls and "Betty Boop" dolls to take home, and one mini German bisque googley with very round eyes and a velvet body, about 6 inches.  Also, a strange grouping of little copper dolls that looks as if they are Korean, some Chinese carvings of the Immortals in rosewood, very nice, a mini icebox for dolls of around 18 inches, c. 1930s, and several composition and early vinyl dolls.  One young man with a beard had one of the comp babies in his hands; he practically took it from me.  Thank goodness for his sake, he put it down.



I found the sleeping eye "Walda" which is very nice, and over 35 years old, two vintage 70s bottle dolls, just pristine, and a lovely reprodcution dressed in immaculate white eyelet with deep blue eyes, sapphire blue, at that.  She was $8.00!



Also, discovered a lovely set of late 20s paper dolls, cut but complete, that resemble Dolly Dingle.



Have spent a lot of time arranging and rearranging, blogging, writing for About.com, reading about all sorts of dolls.



I'm posting a photo of a Mystery Doll I found on Ruby Lane; looks like a Barrois oriental face, but her headdress and complexion look Indonesian, possibly African. Waiting for myTheriault's find from The Blackler Collection to arrive, too.


Mystery Doll; Ruby Lane, has 5 point jointed wooden body, about 9 inches.





Happy Doll Collecting!





Soon to Join Me!
