Here are our UFDC (United Federation of Doll Clubs) Region 9 Director Deborah Jenkines' French and German dolls she brought as examples for her talk "German Dolls Made for the French Trade" for our May 16 joint meeting with all 4 Birmingham dolls clubs in attendance. We had 29 at the Homewood Library meeting to hear Deborah's interesting and informative talk about the German porcelain factories copying the beautiful French dolls and selling them as French. This occurred during the late 1800's and early 1900's. Most of these dolls were unmarked; the French marks were erased. There were no copyright laws at that time.

We appreciate Deborah's visit from Georgia. Many volunteers in the 4 Birmingham, AL doll clubs helped make this meeting a success; i.e.,Birmingham Doll Club of Alabama, Magic City Doll Club, Doll Study Club of Alabama, and Kollectors' Choice.
