Paradise Galleries

I found the blog and social media for Paradise Galleries, long a maker of porcelain dolls, but now making reborn baby and realistic baby types.  They seem to be reasonable, and there are some really beautiful babies here.  I don't work for them, nor do I own any of these babies, yet, but they are lovely, and paradise galleries has a great site.

November Sneak Peek!!

November Sneak Peek
Our wonderful  cover is fairly dancing with automatons is just a hint of what’s waiting in this issue.
There is a great piece on Japanese Art dolls; with interest in fine Japanese dolls growing, especially Friendship dolls, the well-illustrated study by Alan Scott Pate is timely.
Printed cloth dolls sold in panels to cut and sew have entered the realm of folk art in some circles.  Many collectors delight in the original panels, as well as in the dolls.  Read more about them in this article by Linda Holderbaum.
Our own Samy Odin has provided a terrific article on a rare Jumeau.
Don’t forget our Auction results and features, doll show notes, collectibles column, UFDC updates, terrific illustrations, and much more!
Happy Collecting!!
