View Catalog Item - Theriault's Antique Doll Auctions



Below is a link to a wonderful black cloth doll attributed to Julia Ward Beecher, who had ties to both Julia Ward Howe and Harriet Beecher Stowe.  I have an example in my own collection, bought many years ago for $23.00!  This wonderful doll featured in Theriault's online catalog of the Blackler collection is only one of thousands from this remarkable collection of folk art dolls and toys.  These dolls are the heart and soul of doll collecting, unique, endearing, handmade, well-loved.  They are the very definition of "doll" as a beloved object of childhood.
