Doll heritage

In October, my favourite aunt died in St. John's, Newfoundland. Last week I received a package of mementos from her estate.

Along with some family photos, china teacups and other odds and ends, I have inherited some of the dolls Auntie Doris collected. She and Uncle Carl had no children, but she loved dolls.

The ones in the photo are Welsh and Scottish ladies in national costumes, along with one dressed in Brussels lace. Two other dolls have bisque faces and hands. Beautiful.
