Big news for all Barbie collectors – one of the most significant and complete collections of Barbie dolls is up for grabs in September, courtesy of Christies.

The Ietje Raebel and Marina Collection is as much a timeline of fashion as a history of the world’s most famous doll, covering every major look from Barbie’s introduction in 1959 right through to the present day.

The collection features around 4,000 dolls, including Barbie herself, along with all her family, friends, fashions and modes of transport, including the first-ever Barbie, rare limited editions and quirky career pieces, like this rather cool Pan American Airways Stewardess set from the early 60s, estimated at around £300-400. If that’s a bit rich for you, other pieces start from around £80.

The auction takes place on 26th September 2006 from 10pm at the Christies showroom at 85 Old Brompton Road, London.

  1. Hi,
    I believe you have auctioned Barbie dolls in the past and I was wondering if you were going to do it again, or if you could recommend a way of selling Barbie Dolls. I have 3 which are still in there boxes
