Fifi and Jane dolls

Identifying dolls - firstBase Editor's choice

This month, I thought it would be good to focus on some resources that really help with identification enquiries. Over the years, I've had several people bring in dolls to the museum for identification and some of the resources listed proved incredibly useful in helping me to gather information. There's a mixture of museum collections, books and websites that can all show you what to look for in attempting to make an identification.

Remember, if you know of any more resources that are useful in the interpretation or identification of social history collections, please add them to firstBASE!
