About the Doll Collection

Since the beginning of civilization, man has modeled the human figure in effigy. Every doll in history has told a story - a story of tradition, of religious worship, of styles and trends. By learning more about how and why dolls were created in the past, we can learn more about the culture of the dollmaker. In the collection of Mrs. Theo Redwood Blank, there is much to be learned about doll-making, as well as about history and culture.
