Dolls, Posed, on Postcards

The Auction Leprechaun (who bestows the luck-of-the-lot) surprised me with a few dozen postcards of anthropomorphically posed dolls from Ackert Enterprises.

Helen Ackert published A Collector's Resource Through Postcards of Our Antique Dolls- A Fifty-Six Card Series, to wit:

From the Author's Note: "This book is the attempt of one person with her family to leave pictures of some of their doll art forms and the written record of the accrued knowledge. The narrative begins with a personal analysis of doll collecting. It relates the developmental changes that occured through the impact of the hobby. A brief narrative of the Ackert activities previous to the creating of the cards explains the setting in which the enterprise began. A little explanation as to the possible future of the post cards seemed appropriate."

My cards were published in the 1970s for off-the-rack single-sales ... of course, the "my" applies until I stuff them into BCW Pocket Pages and send them off to a waiting granddaughter.

Q/ Any more like these out there?
