Limited Signature Edition

P1001 Mrs Peggy Nisbet - Silver Anniversary Doll

Production was limited to the number of dolls made in 1978

The doll shown in the first picture above is, among collectors of Peggy Nisbet Dolls, a very famous model.  It was issued to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of Peggy's career as a dollmaker, and is based on the image seen in the second picture.  (This image will also be familiar to many collectors, as it is of the front page of the invaluable Silver Jubilee Reference Book)

This picture shows Peggy wearing the formal gown and cloak, attending a reception to celebrate her Silver Anniversary as a dollmaker

This doll is from the "Portrait" series

The portrait we have used as the header picture for this website shows Peggy Nisbet as a young woman - in the photograph above, she can be seen as many will remember her, at the height of her career.

The number of dolls issued was limited to the quantity produced in 1978.

This doll was not made after that date, (though she may well have been available from the back catalogue after that time).

Shown below are two further pictures of this doll - The first with the commemorative picture in its frame, (which came with the doll), and the second showing the face of the doll in greater detail (note the spectacles hanging from a chain round her neck)

Important Announcement


My dear wife, Christine, passed away on the 8th December, 2021after 8 weeks in hospital. I was by her side, when she slipped away from me peacefully, with no pain or suffering.


Chris had been struggling with a slow decline in health, associated with a progressive, untreatable, and ultimately terminal lung disease, and finally succumbed to her old adversary, Pneumonia.


We had been friends for 55 years, together as a couple for 50 years, and married just a month short of 48 years, when she died.   


This website was Chris's idea, and I did all the technical stuff, to make it work.   After news of Chris's passing reached her close friends in the doll collecting world, I was deeply touched and gratified to hear their tributes to my dear wife, and I must thank them all for their kindness and support.   Ultimately, it was her doll friends that gave me the courage to continue with the website.


In the months before her eventual hospitalisation, Chris had outlined a number of additions and changes she wanted to make to the website, and it is my intention to honour those wishes, and to implement the changes we had considered, over the coming weeks and months.


I must apologise to all those who have written to us via the website, only to have your emails go unanswered.   Unfortunately, the email system had been hacked aroung the time Chris was going into hospital, and many emails must have been lost, as a result.


As you might imagine, I felt completely broken by Chris's loss, and it is only now, almost 22 months after her passing, that I have felt strong enough to even look at the website again.   


My aim is to continue with the website, and to implement Chris's aims for her many new ideas as soon as I can.   In the meantime, I have hopefully got the email system sorted out, and I will attempt to answer any enquiries as soon as I can, and to send replies with the same high degree of accuracy that a reply from Chris would have had.


From now on, I will be flying solo, whilst my co-pilot and guide will be soaring much higher, (though she is always in my heart, and in my thoughts).


My thanks to all our website visitors for your continued support


Dave (also known as Arthur), and Chris, (my lost love, Guinevere)
