A. Glenn Mandeville to speak at Rowan Doll Society luncheon

Author, dealer and appraiser A. Glenn Mandeville will be guest speaker at the Rowan Doll Society’s Nov. 8 luncheon.
The luncheon will be held at the Country Club of Salisbury. With the theme, “A Fashion Extravaganza with Ginny & Bleuette,” the luncheon will feature programs highlighting the fashion dolls Ginny and Bleuette.
Mandeville, is regarded among doll collectors as an expert in identifying and appraising modern collectible dolls. His life-long hobby of collecting modern dolls carved a path into a full-time business and he is regularly consulted by thousands of collectors internationally. Mandeville’s personal collection is extensive and includes Mattel’s Barbie dolls, Madame Alexander and celebrity dolls, as well as composition dolls, hard plastic dolls from the 1950s and contemporary doll artist creations.
Mandeville has authored numerous books published by Hobby House Press. In 1995, he authored the “Alexander Dolls Collector’s Price Guide,” which a press release called the definitive work on evaluating Alexander Doll Company dolls.
Enjoying a hands-on approach to collecting has earned Mandeville accolades, including founding president of the Delaware Valley Doll Club, and regional director and chairman of judges — modern, for United Federation Doll Clubs. He is also past president of the Madame Alexander Doll Club and has served on its board of directors.
Mandeville’s expertise is reflected in his regular television, newspaper and magazine reports on collectible and modern dolls. His column, “For the Curious Collector” is a regular feature in Doll Reader magazine.
He often lectures and presents programs on collectible and modern dolls, and has evaluated more than $5 million worth of collector dolls.
Currently residing in the Charlotte area, Mandeville is presently working on more in-depth writing projects and can be seen at a wide range of quality doll shows.
