I hope you have all been keeping well.  During Lockdown, I have been busy catching up with lots of jobs around the house, but I still have a lot of interesting dolls to catalogue, and put onto my website.  Where does the time go to?  There never seems to be enough hours in the day!  Hopefully I will be able to start catching up again soon!

HAPPY SAINT DAVID's DAY FROM WALES, U.K.

 HAPPY SAINT DAVID's DAY to all my Welsh friends and followers.

I am putting this post on here rather late in the day, because I have spent quite a time this evening doing some research about this doll. Not a word of what I was told by the Salesman when I bought the doll in the early 1990's is true! Haha. But I still LOVE the doll! It just goes to show that you cannot always believe what a salesman/saleslady tells you. She is a walking doll and is three feet tall. C.1935.

MY BEGIAN LIBERATION DOLL

 MY BELGIAN LIBERATION DOLL

Website Id:  (Europe - Belgium - 004)  


     I thought I would give you all a "nice smile" today, to cheer you up on this dull and dreary Lockdown Day.

     This cheerful young girl is a Liberated Belgian doll, and is 13" high.  She has a bisque (?) head with painted features, and is jointed at the neck and shoulders.  She is stitched at the top of her legs, to enable her to sit.  She was made by "UNICA" just after the Second World War in honour of the Liberation of the German Occupation.  She is C.1945.  There is a similar doll featured in the book:  "European Costumed Dolls" by Polly and Pam Judd, pages  11 and 12.

MARKS: None.  There would have originally been a cloth tag on the bottom of her dress.

 CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:   

 Today it was announced that WALES will still be in Lockdown for another three weeks.  But things are improving slightly.

      I still have dolls waiting to be catalogued, and listed on my website, which I am hoping to do soon, including some very pretty Japanese dolls..

Market Stall - "WORLD COSTUME DOLLS" - Prop. "Dot Comm"

MARKET STALL

 "WORLD COSTUME DOLLS" - Prop. "Dot Comm"  


I love working on these Market Stalls, but I am beginning to run out of space!  Here is my latest Market Stall - "World Costume Dolls - Prop. Dot Comm"

I have just "finished" this one, but I need to look for more "tiny" dolls. They are not easy to find!
The Jordanian lady on the left, who is handing a little Guatemalan doll over to the young girl, is looking after the stall for her friend Dot Comm, (the proprietor), who has gone to the warehouse to buy more dolls.
