Exhibition of Raynal dolls in Alsace

And the last set of photographs from France. Our Marie-Grace and Paloma (Kish doll) visited an Exhibition of Raynal dolls in Hatten, Alsace. We came across it accidentally but just imagine how pleased were my daughter and I! It is a personal collection of a very nice French lady called Nathalie. She has collected these dolls over the years and is very passionate about them. She told us stories of some of the dolls and it was all very interesting, especially given that I had never heard about these dolls before.

The earlier of Raynal dolls are made of cloth (from the first half of the 1930s) and those are my favorites. Later, starting from 1935, they were made of plastic composition materials. Some of these dolls have flirty eyes which, I must say, I have never seen before – very interesting. I got so interested in Raynal dolls that I even bought a book in French (the language I hardly speak) about them from the museum shop!

One of the dolls in the exhibition was a one hundred years old Mattel doll!

  2. Оль, а какая куколка Маттел? А из ткани, это девочка в розовом беретике? Очень интересно 🙂

  3. Очень интересные фотографии.Тоже с удовольствием посмотрела. Что за куколка в беретике розовом и плащике, воротничек зеленый ? Личико у нее такое необычное, это она тряпичная?

  4. Лена, спасибо большое!

    Марина, Маттел – которая справа внизу в кудрявом парике и пестром платье. Из ткани, да, та, что в беретике.

    Таня, спасибо! Вот как раз в беретике и есть тряпичная кукла. Но она плотно набита и стоит сама.

  5. Спасибо за фотоэкскурсию!
    Я тоже во время своего визита в парижский музей более всего впечатлилась мягконабивными куклами)))

  6. Лара, спасибо! Да, мне даже захотелось такую у себя поселить, только проблем слишком уж много с ними, да и купить в хорошем состоянии их почти нереально.
