by Dutch Fashion Doll World

The auction house specialized in dolls called Theriault’s has a very interesting auction on November 23 in the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. The dolls in this auction are from the private collection of Robert Tonner.

the auction is called “Inspiration! The Robert Tonner Collection”

“Every important doll designer throughout history has drawn inspiration from those who came before. Robert Tonner, considered by most to be the premiere contemporary designer of today’s high fashion dolls, is no exception. His inspiration, he avers, has been the extraordinary fashion ladies of the 1950s, and over several decades he has quietly assembled an important collection of rarities from this period.”
