How do collectors choose dolls for their collections? They can be dolls of a certain master or puppet company. Some collectors prefer porcelain beauties from the past Victorian century or plastic dolls from our century.
Perhaps the preference in the collection is determined from the very first doll and the collector seeks to find such dolls. They remind him of his childhood or one of the stories told by his grandmother.
The size of the dolls may also be an idea for a collection. If there isn’t much room for exposition in the house, and the desire to have many miniature dolls, the size is of great importance. And perhaps the idea of the collection can be the beauty of doll faces.
But there are collectors for whom collecting dolls are part of the profession. I am such a collector. It is very important to have as many different dolls in the collection as possible when creating doll clothes. In a previous article, I wrote about vintage German Plasticbaby dolls.
