Question
As a Jewish antique dealer, am I allowed to buy and sell figurines or statues of people and animals?
Answer
You are allowed if the figurines or statues are not idol for worship and the buyers will not worship them. This is the Minhag also regarding dolls. Some Poskim say one should break a bit off the doll. Rabbi Yitzchak Grinblat
