Generations ago, only a few youngsters were fortunate enough to play with the lovely dolls depicted in the pages of this coloring book. Today, these elegant dolls, created from a variety of materials and with engaging, hand-painted faces, have become highly valued antiques.
Artist Brenda Sneathen Mattox has painstakingly re-created a rich selection of nineteenth-century dolls for today's youngsters (and the young at heart) to enjoy. Thirty full-page, ready-to-color illustrations present these rare dolls in authentic period costumes. Included are captivating Jumeau dolls with long, curly tresses; a Bru lady doll with a fashionable hat and high-necked dress, ca. 1870; a French fashion bride of the 1870s; a French walking doll with a feathered hat, ca. 1880; an engaging, wide-eyed bisque googly; a Simon and Halbig and a Kestner doll, both with long hair; a Fran ois Gaultier-type doll in a stylish ensemble; and many more. Seven dolls are shown in full color on the covers.
These beautifully drawn portraits of irresistible playthings -- all identified in brief captions -- will delight not only coloring book fans, but doll collectors and antique enthusiasts as well.
