This book guides the reader through the "elementary" clues for solving the mysteries of dolls. These clues will help you to determine what materials were used for the head, body and hair, and the category of the doll in question. You will learn how important the length of a doll is in determining when it was made. The 225 photos (32 pages in full colour) and 159 illustrations will help the collector, dealer, or any interested individual to discover not only when a doll was made but also where it was made and who made it. The Makers and Marks Section includes 162 doll makers and manufacturers with information including mould numbers, sizes, manufacturing dates and references for over 1600 dolls. This book is an invaluable source for anyone who owns a doll or dreams of owning one. It is a "must have" for anyone who is curious about dolls.
