Dolls, 8 tall inches and under....
My doll club meets Monday and our program is "Dolls 8 inches tall and under." Our custom is to bring in dolls related to the program to display.
A large portion of my collection is this size. I pulled out a bunch to take to doll club and decided to photograph them while they are out of the cabinets. This represents less than one third of the small dolls that I have under 8 inches but I would have to take apart a lot of displays to get to them all.
The dolls are from different eras and different mediums: wood, china, paper clay, cloth. The smallest doll is 2 inches tall and her blue dress is next to her. She is not the smallest doll I have or made but she is the easiest of them to photograph!
I actually have many Hitty dolls in my collection but only included two I made, one in wood and one in cloth. Hitty is exactly 6.5 inches tall so she qualifies. The smallest dolls in my collection are really tiny, but I think I will not bring them to doll club as they are easily lost. (I have lost some of them here a few times.)
Many collectors in my doll club collect Betsy McCall, small antique bisques, Ginny, Hitty and other tiny dolls. Hopefully, I will have some photos to share next week.
Now, I must get mine ready to travel.
It is the weekend again. I do hope you enjoy yours.
