More than 500 lots of dolls, toys, textiles and costume are expected to fetch in the region of £50,000 - £70,000 when items from the Museum of Dolls in Cromwell in Newark go under the hammer.
The Old Rectory has been home to Mrs Vina Cooke's collection since 1983 where, with husband Mr Charles Cooke-Chambers, dolls and toys were cared for, restored, created and exhibited.
The auction will take place on Saturday 8th November.
