I am the Assistant Curator at Castle Kilbride National Historic Site in Baden, Ontario. In 2018 we are celebrating what would have been the 100th birthday of the little girl that lived at Castle Kilbride. She loved Lenci dolls and has at least 3 (unfortunately we only have one in our collection.) We would like to host an exhibit on Lenci Dolls and are looking for any Canadian collectors. If you could help us out we would greatly appreciate it! Please feel free to pass along my information to anyone who can assist.
