About Catawiki's doll & bear auction

Dolls are known to have been used as toys in Greece, as early as 100 AD and are likely to have been made from materials such as bone, leather, clay or stone. In the industrial era of the 19th century, doll’s heads were produced in porcelain and accompanied by a body made of fabric. Toy bears were developed, separately yet simultaneously, at the beginning of the 20th century, by US toy maker, Morris Michtom and German designer Richard Steiff. Apparently named after US president, Theodore Roosevelt, the teddy bear has become an iconic and popular childhood toy. Such bears are highly collectable, particularly vintage and rare examples.

Catawiki’s doll and bear auctions have featured lots such as a 1924 Simon & Halbig doll from Germany, which sold for £1,202 and a French doll by F. Gaultier, which sold for £641. Whether you have an antique doll from the 18th century or a highly collectable vintage bear, Catawiki’s doll and bear auctions are the best place to sell your special objects. Listing your doll or bear on Catawiki will expose it to millions of potential bidders, including collectors and enthusiasts. Our expert auctioneers supervise our auctions, while our notary officials work to guarantee the validity of bids placed.
