"Bertha" now on display at Riverton Branch Library with other dolls

Just in time for the holidays, the Riverton Museum has created another display for the Riverton Branch Library. "Dolls that Came to Fremont County" showcases a variety of dolls, ranging from the late 1890's to the 1940s, with information on the history of dolls. "The Riverton Museum has a great collection of dolls. Most are in excellent shape and were well taken care of before they came to the Riverton Museum. We are happy and proud to share this collection with the Riverton Library." said Karline Schubach, curator of the Riverton Museum. Gloria Brodle, manager of the Riverton Branch Library had this to say about the new display, "Our patrons are enthralled looking at the antique dolls! Some of the kids want to play with them! It's so interesting to see what the children played with in days gone by". [image: Inline image 1] One doll to mention is the Pet Name doll 'Bertha' from Germany. Pet Name dolls were crafted for the American market in the late 1800s into the 19th century. 'Bertha' is one of the many dolls under this title, and makes the Riverton Museum her home. The Riverton Museum works with the Riverton Branch Library on a continuous basis and this is the fourth display to be placed in the libraries display cases. Stop by the Riverton Library to see the rest of 'Bertha's' friends on display. *Feature Photo: Doll exhibit at the Riverton Library. h/t Fremont County Museums / Pitchengine Communities* #county10 #news
