Session IV from the Edna Marie Smale estate, Chatham, Ontario without additions from other sources featuring an extensive selection of antique bisque head, celluloid, collector and other dolls.
DESCRIPTIONS NOTE SOME VISIBLE IMPERFECTIONS AS A SERVICE TO PROSPECTIVE BIDDERS; NEVERTHELESS, DOLLS ARE OFFERED "AS IS". Dolls often have minor concealed damage (i.e. chipped fingers, toes, cracks, etc.) and also missing shoes, clothing tears, etc. To settle the estate, no sale will be set aside due to condition.
Assembled over several decades forming one of the largest private collections in Canada. Edna was a member of the Historical Toy & Doll Society of Southwestern Ontario and was often requested to loan items for display including at the Ridge House Museum, Ridgetown, Ontario. Her collection has been featured in numerous newspaper articles including one picturing her automaton doll valued at $10,000-$15,000, and in another a hand carved Virgin Mary doll circa 1795.
