Selected Writings Of John Darcy Noble: Favorite Articles From Dolls

Doll collectors and scholars alike will welcome this collection of 35 articles by the renowned John Darcy Noble. curator emeritus of the prestigious Toy Collection at the Museum of the City of New York. Selected from the many stories published in Dolls magazine between 1982 and 1995, this group focuses on some of Mr Noble's favourite antique dolls. Gathered together for the first time ever, these articles cover a wide range of important antiques, from the very earliest rare 17th and 18th century woodens to popular 19th century china heads, mysterious English waxes and the classic, precious French bisques. Always a champion of personal expression, Mr Noble pays equal homage to home-made cloth creations and paper dolls of the past, finding them evocative examples of folk art, and a key to understanding social history.
