By Jay Villaverde
There are so many Antique dolls are in the world, some in very tip top condition, quality, and these poor dolls that are less fortunate, who have not had the love and care that these beautiful antique deserve. Something that always reminds collectors experts when purchasing a new doll, is that at some point in her life has probably been kept by a little girl somewhere. For those wishing to start collecting these wonderful antiques, it is probably a good idea to read about them as much as you can find, or if a friend is a collector get some advice. Remember many dolls have been played by girls, dressed, undressed, so that in May you find a doll that of the body that are a little worn or frayed. Then again those who have no source of clothing.
Many collectors like the bisque dolls, including the first of the trend to a small doll, Germany was probably the largest number of old bisque dolls. Many have been found during the century in the boxes, even some of their own mini-cabinets. Because of their size by more than a loving mother or elder sister of May have sat patiently for hours in tiny clothes, hats, dresses, which was probably a lot of feathers, and even little Teeny Weeny buttons sewn on. Because of these dolls are so small is often the case they are lost.

Since the 1880s, about all the dolls have opened the lips and teeth, before and lips are usually closed. It is useful to make a book from the library, and also to do as much research on a bisque doll if you are a new collector, so you'll have a clear idea of what the labels must be on the doll, because they can go to thousands of dollars if the research will be paid at the end of the day. There was also plenty of competition from the french who also made bisque dolls, the Bebe and they have beautiful expressions. Because they are very expensive, it is mainly the upper class children who received one of these dolls.
There is also a porcelain doll, or sometimes called porcelain doll. The difference is that the doll is bisque biscuit, and China is glazed. For some people, the biscuit man is more due to not be as bright. It is thought that this, in the 1840s to about 1860 may be the bisque head has become more popular. If you come upon a doll made of porcelain or china and find one with an elaborate headdress May of higher value.
Whatever the type of antique doll you want, do your research, ask questions, and at the end you have a possession to cherish for years to come.
