Mini Mar­i­lyns (80)

Cheshire Life - - Homes & Interiors -

A bisque doll with jointed limbs es­ti­mated at £20-40, sur­prised ev­ery­one to sell for £1,200 in a sale at Mitchells auc­tion­eers, Cock­er­mouth. It turns out she was a rare and highly col­lectable Ger­man ‘mignonette’ in re­mark­able un­dam­aged con­di­tion. Mod­ern Franklin Mint porce­lain dolls rarely a cause a stir in the sale­room but eyes turned for these two groups of minia­ture Mar­i­lyn Mon­roes, all in poses from film, stage and pub­lic ap­pear­ances. They were es­ti­mated at £80-£120, but to­talled £480.
