Peggy Nisbet, (nee Peacock), was born in Bristol in 1909 and lived in Weston until 1929, then moved to London to work as a secretary with the London Omnibus Company. In 1934, Peggy married William (Bill) Nisbet, an accountant.In 1952, Peggy started to make dolls, supported by her husband, who remained committed to the business until his death in 1959. In those early days, Peggy designed the dolls and her Aunt Kitty, (an able seamstress), made the prototypes.
Peggy made figures dressed in national costumes, historical costumes and dressed as famous historical figures. Through exhibiting at toy fairs in Britain and America the demand for Peggy Nisbet dolls grew. One of Peggy's strengths was her talent in research - each costume and character was designed with great accuracy; there was wide variety from Henry VIII and his six wives, to Tutankhamen, and the doorman at Harrods.Collectors worldwide would eagerly wait to see the new dolls produced by the House of Nisbet. In 1979 Peggy was awarded the MBE for her services to export trade. Peggy Nisbet died in 1995, aged 86. It is fitting that her dolls still remain as collectible as ever.
