The Best Dolls Ever
Welcome To The Doll House
This page is dedicated to artists and collectors of The Best Dolls Ever. The Best Dolls Ever have a way of touching both the artist and the heart of a collector. Some of the most exquisite dolls are the one of a kinds (OOAK).
The doll artist's muse drives passion for creating soft sculpts, hand-cast, bisque, porcelain, or dolls of papier mache, repainted reproduction dolls in unique costume, or vintage and antique dolls of the heart.
The best part about this site is that the best dolls ever are the ones you like best, and sometimes they are little works of art that are timeless.

The Old Vintage Doll - One of the Best Dolls Ever . . .
Often the best dolls ever are childhood memories we lost over the years when we give up our dolls to go onto big people things. Sometimes we get lucky enough to realize what we've lost, and rekindle our childhood memories with a renewed enthusiasm for vintage collectibles. Below are eBay's random vintage pics of the day . . .
My Teddy Bear . . .
I remember my first toy being a big stuffed Panda bear with rolling eyes and red bow ribbon. Teddy bears are not only loved by children, they are adored by adult collectors, as well.
The Best Dolls Ever . . . .
The best dolls ever usually begin with a heartfelt idea that sparks an artist's imagination.
Some of the best dolls are prototypes destined for reproduction, or simply an artist's masterpiece destined to be cherished by a collector.
Hand made one of a kind dolls are often heirlooms passed from one generation to another. Below are examples of some of the best dolls ever.
The doll shown here is known as a 'half doll' or what my Grandmother would call a "Pincushion Doll." The upper half is what I would consider old chalk ware, and it is attached to its original base. The base is filled with sand, and this half doll was used as a pin cushion.
This doll was used to create a mini art poster titled "I'm Stuck On you."

A big idea and a little bit of clay . . . This OOAK artist's beautiful work pretty much speaks for itself. Definitely one of my favorite miniature artists. Looking at one of her figures tends to take one's imagination to the time and place of her creation.
