Theriault's doll auction

Fabulous French bébé by Denamur with original painted masquerade mask is believed to be a special commission, likely one of a kind, circa 1888. It sold for a well-deserved $32,200 at Theriault’s annual summer auction. The miniature wax doll realized $800, and the key-wind piano which disguised a toiletry set went to $1,750.
