On this day in 1836 the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed. This tiny Texan is a 1.5 inch tall all-bisque doll in his original crochet costume. He is from the German firm of Carl Horn, who specialized in miniature dolls from 1906 through the 1930s.
AUSTIN DOLL COLLECTORS SOCIETY
The Austin Doll Collectors Society is an organization of antique, vintage, and modern doll collectors, dealers, and artisans. We meet on the first Monday of each month and our meetings are fun and educational. We begin with refreshments and socializing, and, following our brief business meeting, there is a special doll-related program and "show and tell." The Austin Doll Collectors Society is a nonprofit organization and is a member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs.
