THE COLLECTION OF THE LATE EVE JUNG
Eve Jung was born in 1922 in Dessau, Germany and died in 2002. She had two main passions in life: her first was Law, working for over forty years in this profession, subsequently, in 1973, she found her second passion and started collecting dolls. This was because her greatest wish in childhood, which was to own a fine bisque doll, was unfulfilled. During the next thirty years she collected over one hundred and fifty dolls, her favorites of which were always bisque Lady dolls.
