A Connoisseur's Guide to Antique Dolls

Ronald Pearsall

Dating back to pre-Ancient Egyptian times, the earliest surviving dolls were probably religious idols, rather than children’s playthings. This highly illustrated history examines materials used in doll-making and includes sections on doll’s houses, puppets and teddy bears. There are examples from Persia, Pakistan and Brazil, alongside the 19th-century child-pleasing French ‘bébé’ that could cry or drink from a bottle, and the rival German doll that could whistle when pressed.
