It's definitely no surprise that I love Victorian dresses and Victorian dolls. So, you can imagine how thrilled I was to see how many Victorian French Fashion Dolls the Strong National Museum of Play had in their doll collection. It's unbelievable.
There are so many I couldn't decide which was my favorite. I LOVED them all and would like to see all of them. They're all simply exquisite.
Here's a few of my favorites:
The French Fashion Doll c. 1850-1890, shown in the picture above, is from The Strong National Museum of Play online collection.
