“Spring Awakening” Doll Auction
Thursday, April 15, 2010
This auction features two collections of note. From Columbia, South Carolina, June H. Timmerman began collecting dolls seventy years ago when she was 13. June said “she never saw an ugly doll”. An accomplished lady, June is the retired owner of the two Timmerman Schools that she started 55 years ago, one still in operation today. She also had a children’s show on public television from 1962 to 1970, “The June Bug Show”, similar to the “Art Linkletter Show”. The other featured collection came from Merritt’s Antiques of Douglassville, PA. This is the end of the doll department at Merritt’s and they are now concentrating on their antique clocks. These two collections along with several other consignors, represent some of the finest dolls Alderfer has had the privilege of offering in recent years.
