 We have just updated our page with  Bets and Amy's gorgeous new 2015 MID YEAR DOLLS!   We always have a hard time picking our Dollery favorites! Last year Amy did the larger size dolls like her mother!  So far, this year, she has done 3 small ones.  Remember, these beauties are all just limited to five world wide!  We are taking orders now with a deposit of 25% down is required to order against our order and we will work with you on extended payment plans. Be sure to email kmalone@dollery.com for all the details and pricing and place your orders early. These editions are all under  5 on Bet's  and Amy's dolls so they do sell out quickly!  Be sure to also email us your information if you would like to be added to our Boxel mailing list and receive automatic updates on their work as well as our free annual doll show catalogues.  Bets shows in Nuremburg at the toy fair the last weekend in January so generally these editions sell out very quickly. She is not going to Idex or Toy Fair in 2014. Please contact kmalone@dollery.com or call  781-447-6677 for price quotes as Boxel's prices fluctuate depending on the dollar. We will "lock" in your price when you order your doll rest assured. We try to be competitive and fair with our pricing always so be sure to contact us!

This year we celebrate our 33nd Anniversary doll show. Twelve years ago at our 21st Anniversary show in October we introduced these beauties to our collectors and they were a huge success. Every year we carry them they become increasingly more popular as avid collectors see these works of art in person. 

CONTACT US QUICKLY IF INTERESTED AS EDITIONS SELL OUT.

ALL DOLLS ARE PORCELAIN
