NEW YORK – Yes, you can play with dolls. If anything, dolls are wasted on little kids. You know what you want, and why you want it, and your allowance is far more impressive nowadays, as it should be. Good thing, too, because the truly excellent dolls – as well as teddy bears, toys, and highly collectible playthings – would empty the piggy banks of young collectors several times over.
On Tuesday, September 14, starting at 1 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will host a sale called Steiff, Artist Bears, Dolls, Toys and More!, featuring 315 lots of exceptional examples of everything named in the title. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.
