Rare 1914 bisque doll sells for $168,000 at Frasher’s auction

An extremely rare 1914 bisque portrait doll sold for $168,000 (inclusive of 12% buyer’s premium) at Frasher’s Doll Auctions July 9 auction in Kansas City, Mo. Sculpted by renowned French artist Albert Marque (1872-1939), the doll was originally commissioned for the Paris boutique Margaine-Lacroix. The buyer, who beat out four phone bidders and additional on-site bidders at the KCI-Expo Center was new to Frasher’s client roster.

“The winning bidder is a collector of French dolls and German character dolls, and they obviously go for the very best,” said Barbara Frasher, president of Frasher’s Doll Auctions.

As noted by doll historians, during World War I, Albert Marque was persuaded by Parisian couturier Jeanne Margaine-LaCroix to sculpt 100 fashion dolls, each signed, numbered, and clothed in a custom-designed costume representing royalty or a particular region of France. The 22-inch dolls were celebrated by the French not only as important artworks but also as cultural icons that stood up to the influx of wartime dolls from Germany.

The “A. Marque” doll in Frasher’s sale was numbered 12, making it a very early and desirable example. “I have only seen two other A. Marque dolls at auction with an earlier number,” said Frasher. “While it’s been said that 100 of these dolls were commissioned, that number is speculative. The highest number I have ever seen on this type of doll was around 60.”

Frasher said the quality of sculpting on the doll is “exquisite … You can tell it was the work of an accomplished sculptor, not only from the quality of the doll’s head, but also the hands. The bisque head and limbs were added to a uniquely flared torso designed by French artist Aristodema Botta. The entire presentation is very unusual.” The doll was a popular attraction at the auction preview, Frasher said, because many collectors had never before had the opportunity to examine a rare A. Marque doll in person.

In 1993, Frasher’s made headlines with another French doll. The rare, 23½-inch exhibition model depicting an elegant Creole lady was produced by Jumeau expressly for the 1884 World Exposition in New Orleans. At Frasher’s, it sold for $231,000, and in so doing, set a world auction record for a French doll — a record that remained unchallenged for 17 years.

The A. Marque doll sold July 9 came from one of three private collections featured in Frasher’s 277-lot sale. After the event, which grossed $418,670, dolls were shipped to buyers throughout the United States as well as to Russia, the United Kingdom, Australia, Italy, France, Germany, and the Netherlands.

Barbara Frasher noted that approximately 20% to 25% of the sale was sold over the phones, with significant underbidding from the Internet. The top lot purchased online through LiveAuctioneers.com was a circa-1880 French bisque, wood-bodied fashion doll attributed to Louis Doleac, which realized $10,305.

Other highlights from the sale include:

  • An especially nice 24-inch bisque Bebe Triste by Emile Jumeau, with finely painted facial features and blue paperweight eyes giving it a melancholy expression. The doll settled at the midpoint of its estimate, selling for $15,680.
  • Another fine Jumeau, a circa-1878 Premiere Bebe, was noted as being the earliest of its particular type. Described in the auction catalog as having “superb complexion, modeling, and expression, and exceptional eyes,” the 15-inch bisque featured an excellent original body, wore a fine fitted silk couture costume and bore a “Jumeau Medaille d’or Paris” stamp. It sold within estimate for $7,280.
  • A circa-1850s Mme. Leontine Rohmer petite poupee, 14 inches in length, with rare swivel-neck design and almond-shaped cobalt glass eyes. Its all-original body included porcelain forearms. The coveted French fashion doll clothed in a deep-burgundy gown and straw bonnet exceeded its presale estimate to finish at $6,325.
  • A classic 1872 Bru bisque poupee, 16 inches with “E” mark, $3,737.
  • A petite Steiner bebe, 10½ inches with a label from the Parisian doll shop Au Nain Bleu, $3,920.
  • A highly sought-after model of the Emile Douillet Jumeau bebe with “E.D.” signature, $4,600. An 18-inch Francois Gauthier (F.G.) French bisque bebe with an “A La Tention, Guyot” shop label was bid to $5,040.
A section of the sale that caught fire with collectors was the extensive offering of doll costumes and clothing. “Some of the dresses brought as much as $1,500; and some of the bonnets went for $500 to $600 apiece. There’s a huge interest in accessories and clothing,” said Frasher. “Costuming a doll to make it one’s own is something collectors really enjoy. The highest prices are paid for antique clothing in good condition, but there’s also a strong market for contemporary productions replicating period clothing.”Frasher, whose doll-auction business is now in its 29th year, said gloomy economic news has not deterred collectors from bidding on dolls. She said she believes that overall, the doll market is stronger than some other avenues for investment. “Collectors have concluded that owning dolls brings them enjoyment, and that they are a pretty sound investment over the long term. They’re not like a stock. You can hold them in your hand and enjoy them. The fact that there are still a lot of quality dolls coming onto the market and attracting good prices is a positive sign.”

Frasher’s Doll Auctions will hold its next event Nov. 5 and 6, 2011, again at the KCI-Expo Center. The approximately 300-lot sale will have a heavy emphasis on French and other high-quality dolls. The inventory will also include a large selection of vintage costumes, dresses, bonnets, and accessories. Quality consignments are currently being accepted for Frasher’s January auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., now a 20-year tradition with antique doll buyers.

I have a doll with markings on back of neck. Hilda JDK jr 1914'sesgesch german 70. I'm not sure what it all means. It has another marking on side of face and on her back. The doll has a painted face and hair is painted on as well. It could be a boy doll. About 12 inches, don't know if its bisque or porcelain. Could it be valuable? Can't read other markings
