One Hundred Years of Dolls Program
Most of you who read this blog are not from my local area, and so you probably do not know that I give talks on antique dolls and other historic subjects. My main doll program is entitled: One Hundred Years of Dolls. It focuses on how both the dolls and the lives of their owners changed over the one hundred year period from the 1830s to the 1930s. I start with Milliner's Models and end with Lencis and the beginning of the era of the Composition Doll. I am available to present programs throughout the year. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
This talk was given at the Troy Hayner Cultural Center in Troy OH in early 2015. This was a slightly shorter program that covered the lifetime of the woman the center is named for - Mary Jane Hayner. The program was entitled: Dolls of a Victorian Childhood.
