Announcing Theriault's June 6 Marquis Studio Auction

Throughout its 50th anniversary year, Theriault’s Marquis auctions will echo our earlier catalog titles from the past, those that most capture our common sense of history. In such a spirit, Theriault’s revives a title from a 25th anniversary doll catalog, "Other Kinds of Roses, Different Ways to Dance" for the upcoming Studio Marquis Auction June 6, 2020.

The words written in the foreword to that catalog are as fitting today as then, except change the words “twenty-five” to “fifty”.

“Twenty-five years years is a heartbeat, a blink of the eye. “Wait, just one more thing”, you turn around, and a quarter century is gone.

Along the way you hear the advice. Slow down, take it easy, dance a little, learn to smell the roses. But everyone’s dance is different. And who can choose your roses but yourself?

For some, for us, probably for you, one of these roses is the chance to live among beautiful objects from forgotten pasts. One of the dances is the quest to pursue them.”

Highlighting the cataloged Marquis auction is the very fine collection of Madame Bossard of Luzerne, Switzerland whose ancestral home sits sequestered by trees, while all-around its garden walls passes today’s bustling city life. The collection features fine early dolls as well as dollhouses and miniatures. Further featured in the auction is the private two-generation estate collection of Rose Rogan of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, encompassing the best of all doll genres from rare French to American wooden and folk.

More than 300 lots are presented in the auction. Each are shown in a full-color catalog with detailed descriptions of each lot, and absentee, telephone, and live online bidding are available. The auction has live audio/video, too. For questions on how to bid, please call us at 410-224-3655 and our friendly staff will help.


A limited edition collectible book which includes award-winning photographs of every doll, detailed description and historical background, and pre-sale estimate is available to order now. 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 visit www.theriaults.com, email info@theriaults.com, or call 410-224-3655.

The auctions begin at 11AM Eastern. 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.
