This pair of elegantly dressed dolls in our collection are Madame Paderewski dolls made in Paris, France during the height of WWI.
———
Madame Paderewski organized the creation and sale of these dolls in the United States to benefit the Relief Fund for Polish War Victims, which she established to help Polish women and children displaced by the war.
———
As the wife of noted pianist and politician, Ignacy Jan Paderewski, Madame Paderewski used her celebrity to bring the dolls to New York to sell to society women. Note the fine features and attention to detail on the dolls’ clothing.
———
The dolls were a gift from Miss Kathryn Salmon to Ann Currie-Bell to add to her collection of dolls. They are a Polish Nobleman and his Lady.
