In Memoriam: Richard Wright
Friday, 03 April 2009 17:44
Renowned antiques doll dealer Richard Wright passed away March 1, 2009, at age 62. He suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). A member of NADDA and UFDC, Wright was a guest appraiser on “Antiques Roadshow.” The much-loved antique doll authority also owned a shop—Richard Wright Antiques & Dolls—located west of Philadelphia.

Wright’s love for antiques started early, as he was born to used-furniture dealing parents. At just 14 years old, he opened his first shop in 1960 and spent the next several decades growing his business.
