Over the years, as our collection of Peggy Nisbet Dolls was slowly growing, we had good reason to be indebted to many of the people we met along the way.
Some were fellow collectors, others were knowledgeable sellers, and a few were the custodians of private and public collections, who generously allowed us access to their Nisbet treasure troves, and assisted us with our researches. Thanks to them, we were even allowed to showcase part of our doll collection in a well-known and much loved West Country museum.
Many of these people have become firm friends – Some, (though not nearly enough of them), we have been able to meet face-to-face, (usually over an exciting new collection of Nisbets), while others, we know only through the wonders of the internet.
All of these people – our friends – have one thing in common. That is, a great fondness and affection for the dolls of Peggy Nisbet. They have motivated, helped, encouraged, and corrected our researches, (and still do!) – and it is these, our fellow doll collectors, who are ultimately responsible for inspiring the creation of this website.
To Nisbet Doll Collectors everywhere - Thank you for your inspiration and support - especially to Pauline C, for the loan of her very extensive archive of Nisbet catalogues and paperwork, and to Alice J, for her continued help, advice, and photographs, but most of all, for her friendship
Thanks also to : Sue Brewer, Jim and Bettie G, Chelsey S, Jack G, Dawn H, Wendy D, and Janet M.
Special thanks to Liz N, Nick G, and the Staff of the North Somerset Museum, for giving us the opportunity to share our collection with a wider audience
And particularly to Peggy Nisbet, MBE, whose creativity, skill, and craftsmanship has given us so much pleasure and enjoyment over the years, and stimulated a greater interest in history, costume, and most of all, in collecting her lovely dolls!
