Event Recap by ECHO

ECHO was thrilled to host members from the Antique Doll Study Club of Oregon at the Zimmerman House on tour day, September 21, 2019.  They put together a very special and unique display of antique dolls that were available during Isobel Zimmerman’s childhood, 1899-1912.

Thank you to all of these ladies who dressed up for the occasion and were available to answer questions as well as those who contributed by loaning their dolls for the exhibit.

Hello Curators and Friends of the Zimmerman House Museum. The Antique Doll Study Club of Oregon and I had a fabulous time presenting the History, Art, and Science of Dolls from the Edwardian Era of 1899 to 1913 last Saturday at the Zimmerman House in Gresham Oregon for Smithsonian Museum Day. Thank you for having us in your lovely home! Please view more about our Doll Presentation at the Zimmerman House, our lovely Edwardian ladies, and the remarkable dolls representing this era on my Blog: Quintessential Antique Dolls

Original Post: Come See the Antique Doll Exhibit

ECHO is super excited to be hosting the Antique Doll Study Club of Oregon on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at the Zimmerman House, Noon – 4PM.

The Antique Doll Study Club of Oregon has been a member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs for 45 years. Many antique doll collectors consider their dolls to be representatives of history, art and science of the past.

The dolls to be on display were available during Isobel Zimmerman’s childhood, 1899-1912. The dolls of that era were made of cloth, wood, paper mache, bisque, china, early composition, and other experimental materials.

We hope you can join us in seeing these beautiful, antique dolls and asking the collector’s questions.
