Welcome to Frasher’s Doll Auctions - America’s most trusted firm for buying and selling fine antique dolls at auction.
Frasher’s Doll Auctions was founded in 1983 and has been devoted exclusively to the sale of antique and collectible dolls and doll related items. In 1989, just six years following their first doll auction, Frasher’s became universally well-known when they rose to the top of the doll auction world – establishing a new American record price of $68,000 for a single doll at auction. Then in August of 1993 Frasher’s became the first American auction house to set the World Record price for a single doll at auction when they sold a rare Exhibition Portrait Jumeau Fashion Doll for $231,000.
Barbara Frasher has been instrumental in securing consignments of quality dolls for auction, and personally consults with both buyers and sellers. A willingness to spend time and money to organize, catalogue and advertise for maximum exposure has assured a lively bidding audience. Frasher’s detailed and fully-illustrated auction catalogues are a significant factor in their success in achieving record doll prices. We service an international clientele of customers who know they can rely on the accuracy of the catalog photographs and descriptions.
Frasher’s goals have remained steadfast throughout their 26 year history, a reflection of the strong growth and continued confidence in our company from both buyers and sellers.
In the past year alone, Frasher’s has been chosen to sell the contents of two of our nation’s largest, and best-known doll museums – The White House Doll & Toy Museum of Anaheim, California & The Enchanted World Doll Museum of Mitchell, South Dakota.
