Announcing Theriault’s April 30-May 1 Marquis Doll Auction Weekend! More than 500 wonderfully-preserved dolls are presented ranging from an early Continental wooden doll in impeccable court costume to French poupées and bébés.
During the mid-1800s, centuries-old cameo art had a grand resurgence, incidentally at the very time that the sculpted bisque and porcelain doll was coming into prominence. Today we can reflect on these two art forms at Theriault’s April 30-May 1 Marquis doll auction as the cameo and the doll come, quite literally, face to face. More than 500 rare and wonderfully-preserved dolls are presented in the two day auction event ranging from an extraordinary early Continental wooden doll in impeccable original court costume to rare French poupées and bébés to German bisque and cloth art character dolls and mignonettes. Too, the applauded celebrity doll collection of Peggy Yale includes many examples with autographs from the celebrities themselves. And there are the cameos themselves, a superb one-owner collection from a well-known Virginia collector featuring profile portraits and vignettes alike. Two days of live auctions in the gallery, as well as live video/audio presentation of the entire auctions.
A gorgeous 216 page full color catalog of the collection written by Florence Theriault is available for $69 including priority shipping and after-auction prices. Shipping is free, and the books are sent priority mail. And after the auction you will receive prices realized to keep with the book forever. To order click here, email email@example.com, or call 410-224-3655.
The auction begins at 11AM Eastern each day. We welcome absentee bidding, live telephone bidding, and live bidding on the internet. Too, you can “tune-in” to the online auction and watch and listen to the entire event. Questions? Give us a call and we’ll help you choose the bidding option that is best for you.
The auction will take place at the Theriault's Studio in Annapolis, Maryland. For auction information call Theriault’s at 410-224-3655 M-F 9AM-5PM EST or go online to theriaults.com.
