As the daughter of antique doll dealers and having doll's around me all my life, in 1987 together with my husband Leigh, we where thrilled to open our doll shop in the famous London flea market on Portobello Road where we offered many beautiful dolls and related pieces for sale. In 1997 I was invited to join Bonhams Auctioneers in London to help run the Doll department and together with my husband we produced many memorable sales over the years, including the world famous Vivien Greene dolls' house museum, many rare and desirable dolls and doll collections culminating in 2014 when we auctioned a single owner collection of rare character dolls, successfully selling all the rarest of the K*R character dolls and achieving a world record price for any doll sold in auction at the time the only known example of the K*R mould 108. Upon leaving Bonhams in 2015 I have now started my own doll business 'Hartswood Dolls and Toys' mainly specialising in fine examples of all types of dolls, miniatures, automata and juvenalia. I have now decided that it is time to join Ruby Lane and I'm really looking forward to hearing from you should you require any further information.
