Table of Contents

Collectors seek dolls with expression or character, dolls, that for the sensitive collector have an intangible connection with the past, a sense of specific communion with faces and people. How did the antique doll-maker achieve such expression? This book explores that question in a richly pictorial manner from the idealized beauty of the French bebe to the whimsy of the German character to American celebrity dolls. It explores development, growth, influences and major themes in the production of character dolls from 1875-1935. The expression of the dolls captured here in 200 exquisite color photographs will fascinate and haunt the reader. Well known brands such as Kammer and Reinhardt, Simon and Halbig, Huebach, Jumeau, Kestner. The detailed descriptions and information will forever change the readers perception of character dolls. 200 color photographs.
