This book has more information in one volume than any other doll ID guide that I've seen. I especially appreciate the doll size charts--helps to determine what size head goes on which body for many makes of antique dolls. Newer dolls are covered, too. It's my most-used book!
This book has hundreds of doll marks and identifications. It has been a superb help in identifying dolls of all kinds. If you buy this one you will use it often.
A must have..buy dolls or has a collection and needs to find marks, #s, makers, and not just for bisque, but compo and other materials, old dolls to more resent dolls. So full of informationthose marks that you thought you'd never find you just might here. You won't go wrong.. and what a price.. Couldn't live without it. Wonderful book.
This was the doll book I bought when I accidently ended up with two antique dolls. Although there is a wealth of information in this book, my two weren't identified. I now own four antique dolls from England, Belgium, and Germany, and the only one identified in this book is the Armand Marseilles. I'm still looking for a way to identify my other three.
I use this book most often. It is a comprehensive book on doll manufactures with lists of doll name, mold numbers and sizes. It has pictures of most of doll mold numbers. It is a handy book to have around when you are an antique doll collector. For harder to identify mold numbers some smaller books, like Main Street Dictionary of Doll Marks is best. All in all this is one of my most used books and I do recommend it.
This is a wonderful book. Has drawings of what the doll marks are on the back of the heads. Able to ID your doll's maker with less trouble. Also has a listing of mold numbers to narrow down the makers. If you are a doll collector, you must have this book on your shelf.
