The inspiring Lady Rochard, adorned with 27 bijoux, is the inspiration for the theme of this catalog, serving as a timeless portrait of all things precious. Yet for the collector, every object of beauty or passion or intrigue is a bijoux, a jewel, a manner to light one’s life. How curious, how fitting then for lovers of dolls, that the origin of the word “jewel” is the French word “jeu” meaning play. Bask then in this glorious showcase of jewels, be playful, be delighted, adorn yourself.

Important Kaonis Collection of Palmer Cox Brownies Every child - or grown-up collector of childhood objects - knows that play can offer a much-sought respite from everyday stress. Especially when that play features fanciful imaginative characters of good will, merriment, and companionship. There are storybook characters such as Max and Moritz, there are Kewpies, and there are comic strip characters. But, first of all, there were the Brownies. Designed by Palmer

Cox, Canadian-born in 1840, and early-on an immigrant to America, the young man settled on a career of writing and illustrating books after a stint working on the railroad. By 1882, his work centered more precisely on illustrations for children’s fables, and that year his first stories of a merry band of elves, the Brownies, were published in the children’s magazine, St. Nicholas. Inspired by the Scottish folk tales that his mother had recited to him as a young child, Palmer Cox morphed the legend of the household-helpful elves into an adventurous and mischievous band of various nationalities and occupations. Their success was immediate and phenomenal, the stories continued, and in 1887 The Brownies, Their Book was published, the first of a series of books about the playful elves. Marketing courses in today’s universities would do well to study the licensing career of the Brownies. Maintaining control of the presentation of his little folk from their creation in 1882 until his death in 1924, Palmer Cox developed their appearance in a vast plethora of products, ranging from toys to books to dolls. Brownies appeared as “spokesmen”

to advertise products, in trade cards, publications, and other promotional pieces. There were candy containers, beer steins, porcelain dishes, majolica figurines, and amusing little bisque statues. Several decades ago, inveterate collectors, Keith and Donna Kaonis came across the world of Brownies. Donna notes, “It was at least thirty years ago when I noticed my first Brownie at an antique show. He was hard to miss at three feet tall with a wide grinning face and enormous eyes.” Finding him irresistible, she took him home and, so, the collection was begun, forming into a grand carefully chosen group of porcelain, majolica, paper mache and cloth examples. And the three foot fellow? After years of study and research to trace his origin, a serendipitous finding of a vintage photograph gave the answer. He was made by Schoenhut, and displayed at the 1899 National Export Exposition in Philadelphia. A rarity, indeed. x


Early Steiff Rarities The one-owner private German collection was meticulously collected over more than 3 decades, and represents an extraordinary array of the mohair and velvet animals created in the early 1900s by the celebrated Steiff firm known for their signature logo “Button in Ear�. The collection ranges from seldom found early teddy bears such as early Petsy and Teddy Clown in two sizes to the impossibly-rare complete set of animal Skittles first introduced by Steiff in 1892. Beloved family pets of dogs and cats are featured in abundance and in rare variations of color and size, as well as fantasy figures, farmyard animals, and animals and fantasy figures representing celebrity figures such as Mickey Mouse or historical events. x 5

example, a grand 30”, is superbly preserved, retaining 24 of the original 28 micro-photographs including the Pavillon d’Orleans at Fontainbleau, Vue Generale de la Louvre, the Port of Havre, Ste Chapelle, Hotel de Ville of Paris, Etablissement Thermal, Bassin du Commerce Theatres, St. Jean Baptiste, and notably, an image titled Le Vengeur which may be a coded reference to a journal, Le Vengeur, which appeared in Paris 5 of the 24 original mini photographs during the 1870 uprising. As an historical dimensional document in doll, photography, and social history, the doll is immensely important. As a work of art, the doll is, in a word, splendid. $80,000/120,000 Historical Background: Rochard, born in 1836 in Paris, the godson of jewelry maker, Barthelemy Legentil with whom he likely apprenticed, was intrigued, not only by jewelry design, but also by micro-photography. In 1868 he deposed a design concerning a system for placing Stanhopes (microphotographs) in the breastplate and throat of a doll. His logic was simple: the tiny, tiny micro-photographs (about 1-1.4 mm) were to be incorporated with an optical viewing lens which magnified the image about 160 times, making them visible when held closely to the eye. The system was inventive Rochard 1868 patent drawings (possibly spurred by the creative fever that swept France during the 1867 International Exposition), but also very costly and time-laborious, and likely the victim of the 1870 Franco-Prussian war and ensuing revolution which devastated Paris. Whatever the reason, or just the simple fact that, once a doll was assembled with a body, light could not enter the shoulderplate and the views could not be seen, few examples of the doll were ever made, accounting for its extreme rarity.

Condition: generally excellent, bisque is flawless, body has some typical gutta percha restoration but is quite sturdy. Comments: Huret, late 1870s, this particular gutta-percha-bodied bébé presumes a very specific moment of history, positioned between the end of Huret’s gutta percha-bodied poupée (about 1875/1880) and the beginning of Huret’s wooden-bodied bébé (about 1880).

intricate: the lady pivots her head, raising and lowering her eyelids, while gracefully twirling the parasol between her fingers and occasionally lifting a mask as though to offer it to passers-by.
