hroughout its 50th anniversary year, Theriault’s

will echo catalog titles from the past, those that most capture the sense of history offered by our common past. “Dance of the Hours” was the theme of Theriault’s July, 2009 catalog auction, the title chosen to honor the Albert Marque doll which graced its cover, just as another of the extraordinary Marque dolls is showcased in this catalog from the Lillian Hamm collection whose collecting years span nearly the same decades as Theriault’s, and whose collection abounds in rare dolls acquired from previous Theriault’s events, a highlight of which is the extremely rare Kewpie mountain, #38 of this catalog. x

F

eaturing the extraordinary 50 year collection of Lillian Hamm of Branchville, New Jersey highlighted by a

splendid example of the very rare Albert Marque doll which was previously displayed at the Winter Haven Museum of Antique Dolls in Florida before making its home with Lillian Hamm nearly 35 years ago. The doll was one of a pair of Albert Marque dolls shown at the Museum (the other was sold by Theriault’s in 2015), each wearing its original Ballet Russe costume designed by Margaine-Lacroix of Paris and presented in an exhibition at the Margaine-Lacroix boutique about 1915. The pair was acquired by Winter Haven Museum family from that exhibition and remained in the possession of only the Museum and Lillian Hamm until their presentation at Theriault’s auctions. The auction also features the Ackerman Collection of Schoenhuts, Part II which is highlighted by a complete “Teddy’s Adventures in Africa” set, as well as dozens of other rare animals, figures, and accessories, most of which were featured in her legendary book, Humpty Dumpty Circus.

Only one other example of the 103 model has been sold by Theriault’s, from the Legoland Museum of Antique Dolls and Toys. Historical Note: Although it has long been known that the model (and its companions, the 104 and 105 models) were made by Kammer and Reinhardt, the actual back story of the dolls remained a mystery until 1987, nearly 80 years after their creation, thanks to the tireless research of German scholars, Marianne and Jurgen Cieslik. The first clue appeared in memoirs of Franz Reinhardt who said that in the firm’s quest to create a new type of realistic doll “we contacted a Berlin artist who had been recommended to us”. But no mention was made of the artist’s name. Then, years later, another clue surfaced, it was an obscure reference in a German newspaper article of 1928 which dealt with the Walterhausen doll industry which said “the first dolls of this type were created based on the head of a baby modeled from nature by Professor Lewin-Funcke”. Based on this obscure clue, the Ciesliks tracked down the family of Lewin-Funcke and uncovered still more important information regarding which models that famed Berlin sculptor had created and who had served as the model. They learned that the model for the 103, 104, and 105 models was Karin Lewin-Funcke, the daughter of the sculptor. An old handwritten note from K*R described the 103 model as “girl/serious”, made in the 58 cm. size only. $45,000/65,000

17. Outstanding French Bisque Art Character by Albert Marque in Original Ballet Russe Costume with Provenance 22” (56 cm.)

Condition: virtually mint condition, with flawless and exquisite bisque, enhanced by its early presence (#8) from the mold. Marks: A. Marque (incised signature) 8 (red ink number on head). Veronque (pencil lettered on foot). France, circa 1916, the model was sculpted by French artist, Albert Marque with a unique body design created by fellow artist. Aristodeme Botta; it is believed that only 100 examples of the doll were created. The Marque doll was a signature model of the French movement known as “Renaissance of the French Doll” whose purpose was to re-invigorate the 19th century French doll industry. To that end, celebrated French artist and sculptors, as well as couturier houses, were called upon to create new models and present them in exceptional costumes. One such group was presented in an exclusive exhibition at the fashion boutique of Parisian art patron, Margaine-Lacroix, about 1916. Showcased at that exhibition were several Marque dolls in costumes suggestive of the theatrical costumes designed for the popular Ballet Russe with particular attention to the Scheherazade opera whose dramatic Arabian Nights style costumes were designed by Leon Bakst. This doll is likely of that series, wearing its original costume of uniquely woven metallic gold costume edged with gold beads, matching slippers with leather soles impressed with figure of doll, matching turban with feathered trim, and blue and purple brocade silk jacket. Provenance: the doll was acquired directly from the Margaine-Lacroix Paris exhibition in 1916, and many years later was presented to that owner’s son and daughter-in-law who founded the Museum of Old Dolls and Toys in Winter Haven, Florida. There the doll stood centerstage for decades, alongside its partner doll (#7 of the Marque series, sold by Theriault’s in 2015). When the Museum closed its doors in 1984, both dolls were acquired by Lillian Hamm in whose home they resided until presented at auction by Theriault’s.
