ADC Posts Highlights of Theriault's Nov 22 & 23 NYC Auction

The January 2015 issue of Antique Doll Collector Magazine is featuring highlights of this historic Theriault's auction, held at The Waldorf Astoria.  If you read my posts on Doll Collecting at About.com, and our blogposts, here, you know that the Jumeau 201, an extremely rare little girl, brought the hammer down at over $200,000.00. The variety, thought, was staggering, and here are some other results.

1. 22 inch rare, K*R 107 in an antique costume, black suit and white tie shirt, brought $37,500.00.

2. A darling size 000 Schmitt et Fils young lady sold for $14,000.

3. A Door of Hope Chinese bride in a fantastically detailed costume brought $19,000.00.

4. An early 14 inch Jules Steiner bebe realized  $6,750.

5. A super rare Van Rozen gentleman, 15 inches, brought $15,000.

6.  A size 3 Bru Jne, 14 inches, brought $23,000.

From Robert Tonner's collection, vintage doll enthusiasts found:

7. "Judy" by Madame Alexander, 20 inches, hard plastic from mystery series, $5,750.  This is a very healthy price for a vintage doll, so naysayers on the vintage doll market, take note.

8. The ever popular #1 Barbie with blonde ponytail, all original, brought $4,200.

We eagerly await the results of the upcoming Cotillion Auction by Theriault's, January 10 and 11.
