When i was young ( a few years  ago!!!) i used to collect dolls. This i one is a typical Normand doll
An old celluloïd doll, I like it's painted face.
This one is from Brittany

They both have their clogs on!
This one is from the Alpes,from Savoie. This is the costume, a chimney sweeper!
Strange isn't it?
This one can close his eyes, so he is sleeping! sorry!
These three of course are from Great Britain! Today it was men and next time some women.
This is a bed warmer copper toy
and some saucepans ( sorry, i had to polish them!)
and a little jug.
 I hope you will enjoy these pictures and have a sunny day! Here it's nearly summer (for the moment!)

Quelle collection fabuleuse ! J'aime beaucoup les premiers avec leur visage lisse. Il faut absolument les conserver car ils sont vraiment précieux et peuvent traverser les époques !
Je t'embrasse et te remercie pour tout ! ;-)
A dans quinze jours !

Dear Catherine,

I used to collect these dolls too when I was younger, but gave them away in my teens.

Your dolls look pretty!

Happy weekend & lieve groet,
