I

n a recent interview, Walter Isaacson, the historian whose works have ranged from biographies of Ben Franklin to Leonardo da Vinci to Steve Jobs, was asked what characteristic is common is all geniuses. He said, without hesitation, “curiosity”. Why things work, what could be different, why is this like that, and every other question one could ask about any topic, is the mark of a genius, he said. You start here, you wonder why, you ask a question, then think of something else and off you go on a new path. One thing just leads to another. If this feels familiar it is because this is also the path of great collectors. You start out searching for one little thing. It sends you off on the quest for something kindof, sort-of related. But then what about this? What about that? And off you go. Theriault’s is privileged to be the “historians” of some of these great collections as they leave their cherished homes and coax the curiosity of other collectors. January 2022 Marquis auction features Part II of the Luann Guleserian Collection of California, the personal portrait dolls of the child film star Diana Serra Cary (“Baby Peggy”) and an outstanding collection of French dolls from a private Netherlands collector, as well as others. There are more than 500 wonderful antique and vintage dolls to be offered, and you are invited to enjoy the auction with a live audio/video presentation for both days. x

Provenance: The doll was originally owned by the Hebblewhite family of England who were haberdashers and silk mercers, specializing in sourcing fine fabrics for couturiers, as seen by the 1804 inventory paper included with the doll. It is likely that the doll was used by the Hebblewhites as a model of these fabrics and their use in fashionable wear, and was likely used over a period of some time, as the style of the costumes suggests the 1810/1830 era. Also included is a small box with engraved lid which contains tiny sample pieces of fabric with old ink script paper attached such as “this piece of brocade was part of a gown belonging to Elizabeth, wife of Harry Gibbs” or “ribbon of wedding bouquet”. The doll and the costumes remained in the original family until passing into the hands of only one previous collector several decades ago. $25,000/35,000

Condition: well-preserved original finish with minor age patina. Comments: Obergammergau, circa 1790. Value Points: the rare early doll with gentle presence is endowed with an extensive trousseau of fourteen early gowns in various luxury fabrics with exquisite detail of construction, trim, and embroidery, along with various bonnets, capes, and other accessories, which are all preserved in an early decorated wooden box.

The Story of “Charlotte” A

n outstanding English wooden doll, circa 1760, with fascinating provenance linking to Queen Charlotte (1744-1818), the Queen Consort of King George III, will come to auction at Theriault’s January 22 Marquis auction. At 28”, the doll is extraordinary not only in its provenance, but also in its originality and splendor of presence.

(1775-1832), daughter of the 4th Duke of Atholl, the gift of the wooden doll that is shown here. The young goddaughter, who named the doll Charlotte in honor of the Queen, remained in the court, and later became a lady-in-waiting to Queen Charlotte. As for the doll, it was carefully cherished, was passed along in her family, for several generations and eventually passed into the hands of Frances Ada Drummond (18971922), a noted British artist whose listed paintings include “A Woodland Scene in Spring” and finally, at the request of the family, now into the caring hands of collectors. Throughout these years the doll was always named “Charlotte”.

In 1761, the young German princess Charlotte, then only 17 years of age, was married to the just-crowned British King George III, a union which lasted 57 years, amidst the turmoil of George’s bouts of severe mental illness, as well as the American declaration of independence from England and the ensuring American Revolution. During that era, Charlotte gave birth to 15 children, thus drawing to her court a number of children’s attendants and personal ladies-in-waiting. The English author Flora Fraser wrote of Charlotte’s particular kindness to her children’s attendants in her 2005 book, Princesses: The Six Daughters of George III, such as personal little notes of thank you.

Accompanying the doll through the years, and presented with her here, is a glass-lidded box with engraving which contains a number of precious miniature objects. Of greatest interest is a small roll of silk fabric with exquisite embroidery carefully wrapped in paper labeled with the handscript designation “piece of old Queen Charlotte’s train 1770”. There is a linen homespun double “pocket” with embroidered detail, an embroidered miniature folio with internal pockets, a small silk purse with gilt metallic embroidery, a framed engraving labeled “Charlotte, Queen of Great Britain, &c” on the reverse, and a very fine
