Theriault's

Invaluable Seller since 2003

Founded in 1970 by Florence and George Theriault, the firm has specialized exclusively in the appraisal and auction of antique dolls and childhood playthings throughout its 30-year history. The firm's offices and cataloging center are headquartered in Annapolis, Maryland, although its auctions are conducted in major cities throughout the United States as well as online. Also, because of Theriault's stellar reputation, collectors and museums worldwide participate in bidding on dolls through a well-developed absentee bid system. In addition, collectors and estate specialists worldwide - from Australia to France to every small town in America - have commissioned their dolls to Theriault's for auction.

Theriault's was an early leader in the movement toward specialization within the auction industry. "Traditionally, collectors have been confounded by the contradiction of desiring an object, yet fearing its flaws," noted George Theriault. We wanted to create an auction firm with a profound knowledge of the subject of the dolls, as well as the mere ability to present an auction. The principle has been well-served, not only offering assurance to the collector of dolls, but also ensuring sellers that their dolls will be marketed intelligently.

Theriault's has been a world-leader in programs to assure collectors that acquisitions have been wisely made. They are regarded as the most consumer-oriented firm in the entire auction industry offering the unique Gold Horse Guarantee on many of their finest dolls. Such programs have earned Theriault's the distinctive international Jumeau Award as the finest doll auction firm in the world. The development of Theriault's website, www.theriaults.com, continues this consumer-orientation offering informative features such as the question/answer column "Ask Florence", complete listings of all auction catalogues with selling prices, and doll evaluation services.

In 1995 Theriault's celebrated its 25th anniversary and announced the appointment of Stuart Holbrook as President of Theriault's. Holbrook, along with his brother Luke Theriault, is continuing the family tradition of personal attention and professional service to all doll collectors into the 21st century.
