About this title


"The faces, it was always the faces" are the words of Lucy Morgan, collector extraordinaire, in describing her world-class collection of antique bisque dolls that includes virtually every important maker and model from the golden years of antique dolls, 1860-1925. And the collector, turning the pages of this book, will agree immediately, gasping in delight and wonder at the faces of the doll crowd that greet one. Faces beaming, gleaming, solemn, regal, wistful, handsome, expectant, antic, laughing, elegant, eager, pouty, or just simply beautiful. There are the elegant bebes of rich purple skies, and there are the impish rascals so aptly described as "plum delights". These are the dolls of The Lucy Morgan Collection. Nearly 300 rare dolls are included in this book, each photographed in vivid award-winning color photographs, and each fully described with historical references, attributions, dates and estimated values. A useful index will guide the collector to dolls of particular interest. The book is a treasure for every doll lover and a testament to the proclamation that the doll is, indeed, art. Purple Skies, Plum Delights, The Extraordinary Doll Collection of Lucy Morgan.
