What Collectors Are Saying About Theriault’s


“In June, 1980 I bought the cover doll, S&H K*R 117 (Mein Liebling). I have been buying from them ever since. Thank you to Florence, for sharing her vast knowledge through her catalogs and to Stuart, for finding the rare and beautiful dolls. They have helped me in my quest to develop my collection. I’m extremely grateful.”

“Our inquiries were addressed with exceptional elements of meaningful customer service, including very professional, timely and to-the-point answers. We sincerely appreciate and thank Theriault’s for all their work on our behalf. It was a good experience, and we recommend them without reservation.”

- John and Anne Smith, Scottsdale, AZ

The selling experience was very, very good. I was amazed with the packing job that was done by their representatives. It was an intense, but very good experience. The artistic creation of the displays and catalogs adds very much to the enjoyment and visual appreciation. I started going to Theriault’s auctions in the early 80’s or before so it’s been at least 35 years.

“I want to thank you for all your hard work and diligence regarding the sale of the Jumeau. As you know I had some reservations at the outset as the world of doll auctions was completely new to me but I am very pleased that I chose to put the sale of the doll in you and your company’s very capable hands. Whilst I felt mixed emotions of sorrow and excitement watching the auction online I still believe it was the right decision to sell and I'm sure he has ended up with a very worthy and appreciative new owner.”

- Katherine Dawe-Lane, United Kingdom

“Wow! I just received your check and I’m flabbergasted! While this process may have taken longer than expected, this was much, much more than I ever imagined. Words fail me, so I’m just going to say thank you to you and your team for making sure that Aunt Margaret’s treasures went to good homes. It really means a lot to all of us.”

- Tim Jacks, The Margaret George Collection

It was a relief for us to be able to have the knowledge that your firm was handling the auction and all of the associated details during a time when we were sometimes overwhelmed with all that is associated with handling a loved one's affairs.

She thoroughly enjoyed her years collecting dolls and you and Theriault's played a significant role in that pursuit, so it was only fitting that you played a complimentary role when the time came to continue her doll legacy with future collectors.”
