Our November 2013 Issue...

Our cover features an outstanding A. Marque numbered 23 on the back of the head. It has been in a private collection for the past forty years and is among the many important dolls to be sold by Theriault's at the venerable Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, November 23 and 24th. The first day of the sale will feature the renowned French fashion doll collection of Hanne and Umur Buktas of Vienna, Austria. This issue presents many of the outstanding highlights of that sale. The following day, the A. Marque, along with many other important dolls from private collections, will be offered. It is a two-day sale not to be missed.

As a young student of Hawaiian history, Mindi Reid read the memoirs of Hawaii's last queen. She never forgot mention of a doll dressed in traditional holoku (traditional gown with train) that was given as a donation to an American doll collection in the late 1890's. The author tracked down the doll and happily for collectors shares its important history.

Buying an antique dollhouse is not much different than restoring an old house. It takes time and money to restore it to its original glory and make it the cozy home we've always wanted. Kathy Embry details the loving restoration of a large dollhouse containing nine rooms.
We bring you more blue ribbon winners from the 2013 UFDC National Convention in Washington D.C. Enjoy the fabulous array of these important dolls in several categories including German, Cloth and All Bisque.
Plus a look back the National Doll Festival, along with upcoming auction highlights and results.
