Provenance: Paul W Doll Jr. collection USA.
For almost half a century, the whereabouts of Doll’s collection were unknown to all but a few. It was not until the financier’s death in February 2020 that his extraordinary estate came to light. ‘It was like Sleeping Beauty’s castle. He had built himself this tiny citadel in a rainforest in North Carolina, and inside were ancient artefacts that hadn’t been seen for almost 50 years.
