Milliner's Models

It turns out this charming, early-1800s German doll so popular in Europe and America was not at all a model for displaying milliners' offerings, but always was as originally intended ~ a true doll for play. This article dispels the myths surrounding the "varnished head" doll that remains so popular today with doll collectors around the world.

A wonderful thorough article, and source of information on the history of these dolls. It was of immense value to my earlier research on Milliner Models.

Thank you so much for your kind comment, Marta. I'm pleased that you enjoyed the article and find it useful.

I apologize for my very tardy posting of your comment and this response. I was unfamiliar with "unmoderated" comments until last night, and finally got them all online.

Best regards & thanks again,
