Half Dolls have been cherished by Victorian and Edwardian Ladies, and those trendy Flapper girls as well. Aquired fully dressed and attached to clothing brushes, pincushions, whisk brooms or tea-cosies, or purchased undressed and costumed by their owners, thousands of these sweet little half dolls were made in the first two decades of the 1900's. Highly collectible, each one is a tiny treasure, a little work of art.
