This book is based upon an antique doll collection auctioned by Theriault’s of Annapolis, Maryland. Design: Travis Hammond Photography: Gerald Nelson Senior Conservator: Terry Lanford Conservators: Meredith Dupree, Hana Holbrook, Scott Netro $59 ISBN: 1-944881-18-4 Printed in Hong Kong


A Circle of Dolls”, on the premiere auction weekend of Theriault’s 50th anniversary, captures in its theme the essential heart of collecting. That is, that each collector is the keeper of a doll for only a certain time in history, with the obligation of cherishing and caring for that treasure during that moment, and then, when the time comes, to be responsible that the treasures are carefully chauffeured to others. In a nod to this theme, we especially celebrate the legacy of three collectors who have shared their enthusiasm with Theriault’s, and whose treasures are being presented in this catalog. There was Connie Frank of Scottsbluff, Nebraska, who acquired many fine treasures from Theriault’s, and then shared generously with others, not only her knowledge, but also the warmth of her home and her friendship. There was Evelyn Ackerman, whose sense of artistry, coupled with historical research, aided in her authorship of many important doll reference books such as Under The Big Top, and led her to rare discoveries in the work of Schoenhut, the early 20th century toy and dollmaker. And there was Marilyn Parsons, who pursued the study of early cloth dolls, especially those of American studio doll makers, and so generously shared her knowledge. We are proud to handle the auction of these collections, as well as the collection of Martha Thompson dolls from the single owner in Connecticut who has owned these dolls for nearly 60 years, for the family of the collector of outstanding early teddy bears featured in this auction, and for other private collectors who choose to remain private, but, in the true spirit of collecting, wish their treasures to now move into the hands of others who will cherish them also. Truly, the circle of dolls is, in reality, the circle of human connection. x
