Little Ladies: Victorian Fashion Dolls and the Feminine Ideal

Sunday, November 11 through Sunday, March 3, 2019

Art History Parkway District

Before Barbie and American Girl, there was Miss Fanchon. The ultimate toy for privileged girls in the 1860s and 1870s, she and her friends were seen as models of ladylike perfection. These dolls came with an amazing array of dresses, undergarments, and meticulously crafted accessories, from gloves and jewelry to roller skates and calling cards. Bring the kids—or just your love of all things miniature—and marvel at these tiny Victorian treasures.
