Nelling, Inc.

A b o u t   U s



   Mary Ann and business partner, Lisa Doering,  have been buying and selling antique dolls since 1993 and are members of UFDC and   NADDA.   Our shows in California include the Verdugo Hills Club show, Jewel City Doll Club Show, California Doll Collectors,  Santa Barbara Doll Club and Northern CA Pleasanton Doll Shows.  Other shows are the  Eastern National Antique Doll and Toy Show in Gaithersburg, Maryland,  and wherever the UFDC Convention and the NADDA shows take us.  You can also see our advertisement in Antique Doll Collector magazine.

    Mary Ann has been collecting antique dolls since the age of 17, when she was introduced to one of her mother's Avon clients who had 1500 antique dolls!  Mary Ann decided she had to have one, and that Christmas her mother gave her an all original Armand Marseille 390, whom she named "Natalie".  Natalie, who is still in Mary Ann's collection, launched a lifelong devotion to antique dolls and accessories, and a quest to learn as much as possible about this facet of childhood history. 

If you notice that an unusual number of items on the site a listed as "original" or "factory", it is not from an overuse of the words but from a reflection of Mary Ann's passion for original or factory-clothed dolls that clearly, due to a lifetime of handling, appreciating and collecting dolls in their original presentation,  seem to find their way into her path. 

If you have a question about an item, have a doll or dolls you are interested in selling or having appraised, please feel free to contact us by phone or by clicking on nellingdolls@gmail.com on any page.  We look forward to hearing from you and thanks for your interest !
