Doyle was founded in 1962 by Newton, MA, native William J. Doyle. Through the years, Doyle has been privileged to auction a number of prominent New England estates and collections. The F. Gordon Morrill Collection of Chinese and Chinese Export Porcelain, assembled by Harvard benefactors F. Gordon Morrill and his wife, Elizabeth, achieved over $12 million, including a record price of $5.8 million for a Yuan Dynasty porcelain flask. Doyle also auctioned the contents of Westport Harbor’s ‘Pond Meadow,’ the Gilded Age manor house of Earl Perry Charlton, a founder of the Woolworth chain. Other New England collections include the estate of noted Vermont artist Ogden Pleissner and the collection of heiress Alice Appleton Hay, whose family established the Waltham Watch Company and Appleton Farms. Doyle also auctioned the Sporting Library of P.A.B. Widener, III, a member of the family who donated Widener Library to Harvard University.
