Auction Lady and the Babies
The photo below is a little blurry but you can see how the fabric of her head was stitched. I wish I'd taken more photos. There was a crowd around that end of the table and it was hard to get close, let alone pick her up and examine her.
There were several boxes of babies, varying in age and style.
I was talking with two collectors and one of them commented that the stiff-body dolls with moveable arms are a dime a dozen. He said, "I have so many of those. Nobody wants them. I can't give them away!" My unusually quick retort was, "You could give one to me." We both laughed.
I don't know how much any of them sold for. Had I been close by and had the bidding been low I would have been very tempted to bid. I love old dolls.
I hope you're having a beautiful autumn if you're in the northern hemisphere, or a beautiful spring if you're in the southern.
