Doll Listings By Family
Though we cannot guarantee that these listings are complete, they are very comprehensive, and will offer a good starting point for your explorations.
However, we must remember that the original Nisbet archive was lost in the fire of 1970, and many early dolls were only mentioned, (if at all), as a line of text in a catalogue, with no pictures or description ever recorded to define them.
A large number of the dolls had several costume changes over their production life, and this can lead to confusion over their identity.
Many Nisbet dolls were made as Historical, Portrait, and Limited Editions, to further confuse the poor collector! (The Beefeater or Yeoman Warder of the Tower of London was made in up to seven different doll families, and finding out which one(s) are in your collection can be very taxing!)
Finally, some Nisbet models had a dual identity, as a result of a character who had fallen out of favour being recycled with a new, more glamourous name, (and number)
