The Antique Doll Collection of Lucy Morgan Yields $3.5 Million at Recent Theriault’s Auction, Making This the Largest Single Doll Auction Event in History
“ANNAPOLIS, Md., — Years from now collectors will hark back on the January 7th auction in Newport Beach, CA that was held by the venerable Annapolis, MD based antique doll and toy auctioneer Theriault’s, as perhaps the most significant doll event of its time.
“This marks a turning point,” says company President Stuart Holbrook. “Finally antique dolls are coming into their own and being recognized for the value they deserve by a wide group of sophisticated collectors.” After years of being in the top 5 collectibles in the world, yet significantly under-priced when compared to others, such as stamps, coins, or even comic books, the collection of Lucy Morgan proved to market watchers that dolls are quickly on the rise and are becoming a powerful force in the world of collectibles.”
