Doll Auctions In The US - A Collector's Guide
Dolls are considered the oldest of all toys- dating back to as far as the Egyptians in the 2000 B.C. where they were found by archaeologists - buried in ancient tombs. Dolls have also been found from the Babylonian, Greek and Roman periods. Dolls back then were made from wood, wax, clay, stone, ivory, and rags.
In modern times, most dolls are made in Europe. But, Europe too, has its history with dolls. For example, European dolls until the 17th century used to be made from hand-carved wood. Then, in the 18th century, countries like Germany, England, and France started using materials like wax, mold, pulpwood, paper, porcelain and celluloid to mass produce dolls and changed the game. Today's dolls are made from celluloid, plastic, rubber, foam, and vinyl. Collector's doll, however, is still made from traditional materials using traditional methods.
Doll Collecting for Hobbyists, Collectors, and Investors
People have been collecting dolls since forever. The late 20th century saw this hobby peak but it is still popular today. People collect everything from antique dolls and toys to collector's item, French and German character dolls, teddy bears, French bisque dolls, family heirlooms, valuable collections, vintage dolls, rare collectibles, childhood ephemera, dollhouses, miniatures, automata and all other things related to dolls.
A doll is not just a toy. Some people do buy dolls just as investments, yes, but most people have more nostalgic or personal reasons. Sometimes, people might just want to buy what they loved and/or wanted as a child.
