Join a fascinating talk telling the story of two of childhood’s most enduring playthings. Dolls have existed since the dawn of human history and have played an important role in many societies and cultures, continuing into the present day. Their popularity is only rivalled by the teddy bear, introduced in the early twentieth century. Although materials and manufacture have changed over centuries, the underlying concept has not. On display will be nineteeth and twentith century dolls, bears and playthings of the period. Bring a doll and Adelaide Doll Guild will give an estimate valuation.
