Sneak Peek of our July Issue!

Remember to sign up on our website, Antique Doll Collector Magazine, for a free emailed Sneak Peek! of each upcoming issue.  Did I mention it's FREE!!!


Keeping that in mind, here is a brief rundown of our wonderful July Issue.  A gorgeous A. Marque, #50 of a series of 100 dolls, ahs a pencil inscription of "Paulette Louis XV" on her food.  She has a Margaine-Lacroix label on her clothes; are you paying attention fashionistas!






Our dear friend and colleague, Samy Odin, has written a wonderful article on other all-felt art dolls from Italy called, "In the Shadow of Lenci."  These dolls are dear to me, Lenci, or not, because I brought many home from Italy after a family trip we took when I was only nine.  Also, Mme. Lenci and I share a variation of the same first name. Happy Collecting, Italian felt doll lovers and all doll  collectors!!


Margo de Laughter shares a great piece on art dolls, "Inge and Harald from the Haralt Art Dolls."


International costume dolls and ethnic dolls began my own collection, and will always be near to my heart.  They show us it is indeed, "a small world after all."  Linda Holder Baum has written a wonderful piece on Post War Dolls-Frau Margarite Uebel" (Blogger's note:  there is a movie about a child named "Margarite," early 60s, involving the return of her long, lost father, a bossy mom and grandma, dolls, and gender twist a la "The Crying Game."  I've seen it twice, and can't remember the title!  No luck on IMDB.  Can anyone help me!!)


All Royalty watches please note the article by Susan Nile and Anne Coleman, "The Brits Wouldn't Do it", about King Edward and Wallis Simpson doll made in Baltimore.


Our Collectibles column features art dolls by Sylvia Natterer, and we have our usual auction updates and upcoming events calendar, as well as much, more.
