A Marquis Antique Doll Auction | Tuesday, July 26, 2016
At The Mayflower Hotel, Washington, DC
For nearly a half century, Ursula Brecht sought, studied and cherished the finest of European 19th century dolls, with a special love for French bébés and poupées. In the early 1980s her books, Precious Dolls and Kostbare Puppen opened the eyes of antique collectors to the special beauty of dolls, some say creating an entire new generation of collectors. This important collection is presented at this auction, along with important selections from other fine private collections.

The Hanne Büktas Collection Also Highlighted
When, in 2010, the Hanne Büktas Collection of fine antique dollhouses and miniaturia was presented by Theriault’s in the memorable auction, Echoes of Remembered Rooms, the collector kept privately in her Vienna, Austria home ten of her most cherished rooms. Over several decades of researching and careful collecting, she had furnished these rooms with extraordinary miniature pieces and the rarest of dollhouse people. These ten rooms range from a fine early Maerklin grocery store to two Viennese rooms (one attributed to Hans Makart), to extraordinary rooms from the Biedermeier and Victorian era. At the collector’s request, the rooms are being sold intact, each with its bounty of rare miniaturia, ephemera, and doll people.
