Four-digit sales value: Horst Lichter can hardly believe “Bares für Rares” expertise: “Words fail me!”
Moderator Horst Lichter did not expect that! Although he has no idea about dolls, the fact that the two little figurines should have a four-digit value still knocked him off his stool. To the delight of the seller couple.
There were two little dolls on the “Bares for Rares” table. Old but in miniature format. Horst Lichter found the objects very pretty. The moderator would never have expected that the figurines would have a value in the four-digit range.
Andrea and Michael from Saarland were excited about the expertise. “My mother got it about 30 years ago from an old French woman,” said Michael. “She said they were very old. From the time of the great war.”
“We have a hussar uniform”, Sven Deutschmanek analyzed the origin of the porcelain dolls. “Hungary, Austria … but France was also an assumption of mine.”
“Bares for Rares” expert Sven Deutschmanek: “They are made of very, very high quality”
To be precise, it was about house dolls, which the expert classified as between 1870 and 1880. “It was done very laboriously,” said Deutschmanek, praising the detailed elaboration of the uniform. “The face is hand-painted. And we have a complete body made of bisque porcelain,” said the expert, demonstrating the advantages of the larger doll. It was in excellent condition for its age: “There is no damage. There are no chips, no rejections.”
The smaller doll wasn’t quite as delicate, “but real hair was used”. The clothes were made of felt and leather. “They are made very, very well. They weren’t a cheap toy.”
Sven Deutschmanek couldn’t stop raving: “I think these two little house dolls are sensational.” The larger doll alone was worth 1,000 euros. He estimated a total of 1,100 to 1,400 euros.
Horst Lichter snorted: “I have no words!” So without a word he took out the dealer’s card and sent the salespeople into the dealer’s room.
The dealers recognized the age and the good condition, but were far behind in terms of value. “I’ll start with 80 euros because they’re so old,” Walter Lehnertz (center) opened the negotiation. “Because they look so spacey.”
It went on in steps of ten. At 150 euros, Lehnertz got out: “They’re not worth it to me now.” Elke Velten (right), Wolfgang Pauritsch and Daniel Meyer (left) stayed on. When there was still no reaction from the seller couple at 350 euros, Meyer asked: “Is the expertise that much higher?”
When Michael revealed the estimate, the bids rose. Wolfgang Pauritsch had finally tasted blood: “I’ll do 800 more, but then it’s finito.” Andrea and Michael gladly accepted the offer, because 800 euros was their desired price.
Pauritsch revealed to the others: “I once had such a doll in the auction. I limited it to 50 euros, and I actually auctioned it for 1,000. I didn’t know. But there were two doll collectors.”

The saleswoman received 450 euros from Wolfgang Pauritsch for her heirloom.
The oil painting of Fletschhorn in the Swiss Alps by an unknown artist was made in 1855. Estimate: 1,200 to 1,500 euros.
However, nobody wanted to pay the desired minimum price of 1,000 euros. The picture remained with its owner.
