Show management is especially pleased to have available for viewing only (not-for-sale) the Hatch Collection of Black Cloth Dolls in an exhibit titled “No Longer Hidden: An Exhibit of Black Cloth Dolls 1870-1930”. This exhibit first appeared at the Harvard Massachusetts Historical Society in the spring of 2007. This is the first time the exhibit will be available for viewing outside of New England. On display will be over 50 black cloth dolls loving collected by well-regarded Massachusetts antique dealer and collector, Pat Hatch. The black cloth dolls are examples of great folk art done by American women with form, color and attitude. As the curator, Roben Campbell extensively researched and documented the collection in the exhibit catalog which will be available for reference and sale at the show.
