Haven't been here in a looooong while - life, you kow.
I found this little clothespin doll in a boxlot of small teddy bears I bought at auction. She appears to be quite old. Are there collectors for these dolls?
Any guess as to what time period. Is she worth anything?
Thanks, fellow doll lovers!
This is the first time I've been presented with this problem for antique paperweight glass eyes. The eyes were loose inside the head (but still in the plaster). I worked with them to get them in place, and noticed this white film. I thought maybe the eyes were cracked or broken, but they aren't. I used cleaner to remove it. The eyes stay clear for about 10 seconds, then this white film reappears every time. Does anyone know what this is? Is there a way to repair them or will they have to be replaced? Also, anyone recognize the mold or maker? It's a belton type with solid some and stringing holes in the head. Only marked with a "0". Found her with a box lot of antique doll heads. :-) Thanks so much for any help!
Can anyone offer me any insight into this doll I recently purchased. She is large, has the body style of a troll but a face that looks sweet and cute. Her head spins and pivots, her arms move but her legs are in a fixed position. She does not have any makers marks that I can see. Has anyone come across a doll like this? Please help...
