The Williamsburgh Collection
The Williamsburg Collection represents the occupants of a comfortably off American family, complete with servants, in 1776 - the year America gained its Independence.
First issued in 1977, these dolls sold for £7.55 each. By the time they ceased production in 1981, the collector would have to pay £10.70 per doll. They were complex to make and assemble, and this was reflected in their selling price.
In the collection shown here, M917 "Gentleman Visitor" is included in the group. As with the Victorian Gentleman Visitor, he can be an elusive character, in high demand with collectors. However, M921 Manservant was not available for inclusion in the photographs for this collection.
The complete collection is listed below :
|M.915||Master of the House|
|M.916||Mistress of the House|
