"The Old Pretender" doll from about 1630 now lives in the V&A's Museum of Childhood (probably the best museum in London). There are believed to be fewer than 30 comparable examples.

"Expensive to buy, they were designed as lavish ornaments for adults rather than playthings for children" - how weird is that?
