Theriault's paper doll auction

This lovely Mary Ware paper doll, c.1915, was one of many treasures at the Theriault's auction of the Shirley Fischer paper doll collection, held in Morristown, N.J., in 2006.

Now comes word of another Theriault paper doll auction coming up soon: the collection of Virginia Crossley. Thanks to Dee Radcliffe of Oahu for alerting me and others on the Yahoo paper doll newsgroup.

I immediately emailed Stuart Holbrook at Theriault's to get more details. Here's what he had to say:

The collection will be presented on June 21, in Annapolis, MD at the Sheraton Annapolis (Washington/Baltimore area).  The exhibit for the auction will be from 9:00AM-11:00AM. Auction to begin at 11:00AM.  The auction will also have absentee, phone and live internet bidding.  The catalog, with full-color photographs of each lot and complete descriptions, will be shown online two-weeks prior to the event and is available for everyone to view. There is no printed catalog.

I hope that this helps Linda and hopefully we might see you there for the auction!  Also, you are welcome to direct any questions about the event to or 1-800-638-0422.

Happy Collecting,
