Richard Wright (1946-2009)

A charismatic personality blessed with a knowledge of antiques that was far beyond his years, William Richard Wright, Jr. was a full-time antiques dealer by the time he was 11 or 12. Those who knew him from childhood say that even then he showed both an uncanny aptitude for the business of antiques and a burning desire to experience a life of adventure. Throughout his life, those qualities remained with him and became inextricably intertwined. Buoyed by the patriotic, entrepreneurial spirit of a nation emerging victoriously from war, Richard’s parents opened a retail furniture store in the 1950s to grab their share of the American dream. But Richard was not a typical product of the mid century. As would be the case throughout his life, Richard embraced counterculture and was drawn toward liberal thinkers and the avant-garde. Always imaginative, always ahead of his peers, Richard would become a trailblazer within the newly developing fraternity of collecting and the business that created collections. Attending rural auctions in the greater Philadelphia area taught young Richard about local history, but his more global education can be traced to the influence of Robert and Mary Merritt. Perusing and purchasing on a weekly basis the treasures the Merritts brought back to their Douglassville warehouses from Europe, the now-teenage Richard viewed Merritt’s Antiques as a beacon lighting the pathway to his future in the antiques business.

Richard opened his first shop in 1960, at the age of 14. His father, William R. Wright, Sr., took notice of his son’s business acumen and the rapidly rising profile he was gaining within the antiques trade. The senior Wright embraced his young son’s hobby and, after Richard’s high school graduation, refitted the furniture store to become Richard Wright Antiques. His mother, Beatrice, may have been the genesis of the business’s doll specialty, but Richard Jr. was a quick study and had become amazingly decisive about all aspects of this family business. It is a well-known fact that Wright Sr. and Jr. often had a different vision about life and business. This had led to a disagreement on a buying trip in England in the mid 1960s that ended with Richard staying on in London and his parents returning to Pennsylvania. It would prove to be a pivotal moment in Richard’s life. Richard rented a flat and soon was embracing London and everything it had to offer—rock & roll, fashion, the world’s leading social scene, and most importantly to him, dolls and antiques. The true collector in Richard was “born” in England. It was there that he discovered the Aesthetic Movement of the late-19th and early 20th centuries. He would go on to collect antiques from this period for the rest of his life.

Richard became a regular on the London doll scene. Haunting Portobello Road and Kensington Court, Richard filled transatlantic shipping containers with antiques and dolls bound for the family business back in Spring City. The rift between father and son had been patched up quickly, and now his parents had eager collectors waiting in line to buy Richard’s latest finds from across The Pond. Returning to America in the 1970s, Richard began his 20-year partnership with Richard Saxman. Together, they went on buying trips around Europe, as well as in Mexico, South America and all over the United States. After the passing of both his parents, Richard entered a new era of his life in 1982 by moving his shop to Birchrunville, Pennsylvania. His team of faithful employees—Meriel Marlar, Gemma Leigh, Sandi Morris, and Beth Ditullio—had to jump into the fast lane to keep up with the high-speed pace of Richard’s buying and selling. By the 1980s, collecting had moved into the mainstream of America, and Richard became a leader in selling all levels of dolls. He encouraged the success of others and supported the creation of a code of ethics in the doll world by becoming the first president of the National Antique Doll Dealers Association. He became a headline-maker internationally from his high-end purchases. His bearded face was plastered on the cover of countless national newspapers, under the words “World record price paid for teddy bear.”

Many people who did not know him personally still felt as though they did, from his countless appearances on the PBS television show Antiques Roadshow. But the most significant benefit of the show was meeting his life partner Glenn Stevens at his very first taping. All along his career’s magical trail, which Richard would have likened to the Yellow Brick Road, he embraced everything and everyone he met. When Richard walked into a room of fellow doll collectors, the atmosphere changed. It became electric. It became fun. More than 50 years of doll collecting is represented in this catalog. By studying this collection it is very easy to see Richard’s many facets. He was not a doll snob, he loved the common, the unusual, the rare, and the original. In his collection, you can see both his sense of humor and his preference for things that were “genuine.” I asked myself, what would Richard say of the sale of his collection? And in my head, I heard his voice saying what I had heard him tell so many customers—“That’s a cool doll, you should buy that.”
