There is always interest in my stock at vintage fairs from doll and teddy bear collectors, if it's not interest in the dolls and teddy bears I have at the time, many collectors buy my vintage children's clothing for dolls in their collections.
I wanted to share these collectible Norah Wellings sailor dolls, I picked up recently which will be coming to our next fair in July.
If you're unfamiliar with Norah Wellings as a doll maker, she was once one of the main designers at the famous Chad Valley Dolls from 1919 to 1926. Once she left Chad Valley Dolls she went on to form her own toy company with her brother, Victoria Toy Works.
All the dolls Norah made were of various types of cloth and sold worldwide and were made for various tourist industries most notable for the cruise ship industry, for which her dolls were made for souvenirs.
