Just been watching the Theriault's June 18th Online Auction. I wish I had the money to buy some of this dolls. You can see some of Martha Chase´s dolls, some Lenci's and some Native American cloth dolls among the bisque dolls (including a tiny one from the 1920s with it's complete wardrobe).
They even have a 1920s boudoir doll like the ones depicted on Susana Oroyan's book
