More Metal Doll Musings
I came upon photos at the Library of Congresss, loc.gov, of a metal toy factory that was converted to make bombs during w WWII. I started wondering if Metal dolls and heads, as well as other metal toys, were melted down to aid during the Wars. Would anyone out there know? Also, my reading has taken me to the Ancient World, where many, many more dolsl and figurines thatn Ic an imagine were made in bronze, gold, silver, etc. in Ancient America, Egypt, Greece, Africa, and Sumeria. I feel a third edition of the book coming on!
