The very first bisque dolls were created by French doll makers sometime around the late 1950s. With time, they grew popular and sparked the interest of German doll makers. Finding their way to the collection of Antique and Other Fine Dolls auction by Alderfer Auction is a vibrant curation of 445 items.
The sale features pieces such as Mary Hoyer dolls with an estimated value of $80. When the production of bisque dolls started, most of them were designed to look like adults. Likewise, Mary Hoyer dolls display a sense of femininity as they were molded in a way that resembles the women of the period. Later on, the popularity of bisque dolls with child-like appearances began to rise among the collectors. The innocence of a child is well captured by an antique French bisque doll. Dressed in floral print linen peasant and an attached cotton bodice, the doll is the highest estimated item at $37,500. To view the full catalog and register to bid, visit Alderfer Auction.
