In the early 1970s, Florence and George Theriault cast off their lucrative and stable careers to open a small country auction house in rural Pennsylvania. Within ten years that small auction company became an internationally renowned antique auction firm. Today, Florence Theriault has authored more than 50 books on the subject of dolls and is the chief doll auction cataloger. She is considered one of the world's leading experts on the subject and has become an international figure in the world of dolls for her expertise and commitment to collectors, while also speaking in educational seminars around the US.
Stuart Holbrook is President and chief auctioneer of the firm with nearly three decades of doll background. He has lectured at over 200 doll club meetings and gatherings world-wide for groups as small as 5 and as many as 500 so as to promote the idea of “Great Collecting.” Considered to be the world’s most knowledgeable expert in the market of dolls and their current pricing trends, Stuart’s expertise is a perfect complement to the knowledge base of researcher Florence Theriault.
Luke Theriault is one of the lead auctioneers at the firm, known for his witty persona with nearly three decades of doll background. Additionally, Luke manages Theriault's sister company, Florence & George, a mail order catalog business presenting collectors with a mix of hand-crafted art pieces and old store stock discovered as Theriault's tours the world gathering antiques. Like his brother, Luke is continuing the family tradition of personal attention and professional service to all doll collectors into the 21st century.
