A few Recipes; Doll Collectors have to eat, Too!!

Baby Alive, Bebe Gourmand, Bebe Teteur, Snack Time Kids, Drink and Wet Dolls, Betsy Wetsy---Even dolls have to eat!  Remember the wonderful doll food described in Parrish's "Floating Island?"  All those cups of air!  Remember the elaborate Japanese dinners Nona created for Miss Happiness and Miss Flower?









 Dolls and Gourmet go together, and as we know, there are dolls made of edible materials, too.  Here are some great public domain illustrations to enjoy, as well.







In fact, the UFDC has put out a cookbook featuring recipes and doll photos.






The American Girls have recipes and cookbook directions, there is, of course, the Easy Bake Oven, and Barbie has had kitchen and barbecue outfits and accessories for decades.   Didn't we love our toy stoves, and the cast iron versions are important collectibles!



So, it's been established.  Doll Collectors have to eat.  Therefore, this is a link to cooking tips from Jacques Pepin from my Green Blog:

Enjoy!

Theriault's Soiree May 2016; if you Love Jumeau . . .!!

The auction features virtually every known bébé model of Emile Jumeau, from the tiniest sizes to the very rare most grand size 20, as well as rare portrait poupées by Pierre-François Jumeau.
The Connor Collection began with a fascination for music boxes which then led to musical automaton which finally led, as things do, to an interest in the bisque heads that were featured on automata, and thus a grand collection of bébés and poupées by the revered firm of Jumeau. “Not since our auction ‘The Beautiful Jumeau’ have we had such a superb collection of stunning dolls from that most important 19th century Parisian firm”, says Florence Theriault. Automata are highlighted by the very rare “Piano Watteau”, grand “Bébé Triste with Toy Theatre and Pup” and “Organ Grinder with Dancing Doll”, all by Vichy, and important music boxes including the extremely rare Swiss/American New Century Disc Music box, the Swiss musical box for railroad station with dancing dolls, and the American coin-operated Regina Corona (considered one of the first juke boxes).

As if this would not be enough, there are also outstanding dolls from the collections of the late Shirley Bertrand of Wadsworth, Illinois and the late Carolyn Guise of Dayton, Ohio. During her early collecting years, Carolyn Guise lived in Rhode Island, so it was only natural that she would seek out the wonderful American dolls from that New England locale, including an early doll by Izannah Walker and an outstanding collection of cloth dolls from the studio of Martha Chase. The collection, too, features unique choices such as “Suzanne’s Doll” from Au Nain Bleu with complete labeled trousseau and fascinating provenance, rare Schoenhut dolls, all-bisque characters, collection of early Sonneberg and Simon and Halbig dolls, rare German art character dolls, Lenci, and more.

A full color art quality hard-bound catalog, certain to capture a prominent spot in your home, is available for $75 with after-sale price key and free shipping. To order the catalog or for more information call 800-638-0422 or visit www.theriaults.com or click on the button below.
