20th Century Fashion Dolls

Everyone knows that in the eighteenth century, dolls were used to spread the latest fashions; less well known are the versions that were popular in the early twentieth century.  While I was pinning images from the Met onto my Pinterest boards, I came across twenty-six of these Lafitte-Desirat dolls, all dressed adorably in the fashions of the 1910s.

I fully intended to research and write a post about their history, but I was beaten to the punch by this amazing article from the Jazz Age Club, complete with pictures of fashionable women with their fashionable dolls.  I highly recommend it!
