Claire Wade and the Emma Clear Connection
A bit of quick research brought me to the maker of the doll--Clairmaid is a signature used by Claire Wade, an employee of well-known antique doll reproduction pioneer Emma Clear. The dolls of Emma Clear, the founder of the Humpty Dumpty Doll Hospital, are collected in their own right. And, the reason that the name Claire Wade rang a bell for me is that she was the mother of another well-known doll reproduction artist, Neva Wade Garrett!
