I would like to know how to sell a doll of Princes Diana and how much it would be worth. It has the original box. Unfortunately I have no paperwork. The doll is from The Franklin Mint. It is a Diana, Princess of Wales, porcelain portrait doll.
The first thing I would do is upload a picture of your doll into 'Google Images'. Click then on the pictures of the doll you have and you might get a hit to where someone is selling a similar.
That's the way I would usually start.
Depending on what she's wearing depends on her worth.
For example, if you have the doll wearing an Hachi gown she'd be worth £1,400!
Best of luck,
First - where are you? United States?
Princess Diane has always been a popular doll but the companies make so many of each doll (even Franklin Mint) that most lose their value because, like you, people want to sell them.
Sellers on eBay many times have their items up for sale for many months, even years, and still do not get high money.
There are a lot of this type of doll on the Internet. Just check Google, eBay, Amazon and Craigslist. Dolls are generally not worth as much as they cost originally and are very expensive and difficult to ship.
You have your doll in front of you so you can check these sites for a doll like yours and maybe get an idea as to the value. eBay also has a place where you can check what dolls recently sold for.
Here are some recent links that might give you an idea as to value but getting that money may be difficult.
I have about 20 or more porcelain dolls, in glass cases wrapped in plastic. None have ever been opened or touched. I also have a princess Diana doll in her wedding gown standing own a rod. How do I find out the value?

Go to library as they have books on subject. Also contact the companies from which the dolls came. They would be able to connect you to someone who could tell you the value of the dolls.
Go on Google and your in the name of the brand Of doll then take it from there, if it's the 1 I got, Which I think it is, they are valued at 99.99
While in England, in 1997, I purchased a Princess Diana doll for my mom. It is #11 of 500. It was the first Princess Diana doll commissioned by the Queen, and made by her personal doll maker. She is wearing a floor length black ball gown with a full skirt. It has been sitting in my mom's china cabinet.
On ebay I see from $80 to $125 http://www.ebay own&_sacat=0

Thank you for your post and interest in Ashton-Drake dolls. Unfortunately, we no longer have a secondary market for retired dolls. You may want to check eBay or visit an antique/doll shop to get a value for your ballerina doll. Good luck! Thank you, Chris
She is in ment condition, with box and papers.
There are many types of Diana dolls available - new and resale. You can try an online search for possible values, check EBay for prices etc. Most dolls, including the Princess Diana, are not worth much on the market as dolls are usually mass produced.

Hi - if you have tried eBay, Etsy, Replacements and Google and had no luck - try discussion boards on eBay in the doll discussion board. They will want all info but someone there will help you.
My mother has a Princess Diana engagement doll that's never been out of the box and she is wondering how much is it worth.

You can look your doll up on eBay and Google for this information.
I am looking for two dolls made by the Franklin Mint. One is called 'Sophistication' and the other one is called 'Enchantment'. Anyone who might know where I can find one or both please let me know.

I agree that ebay would be a good place to start looking. If you put that doll (s) into search, something might turn up too.
Are you stil looking for these dolls? If so, I have them and am wiling to sell them. Let me know. Thanks,
Hi - check this web site and you will find 2 or 3 questions like this every week.
I do not believe anyone has ever been able to give any good advice about dolls or books.
Most dolls are not valuable since the "invention" of eBay and sites like that as all kinds of dolls are just too common.
You have the dolls with all of the information so do your research on eBay, Etsy, Google and sites like that.
Research is fun - try it..
I am trying to find the value of a J. Misa or Ashley Bell Princess Diana doll in black chiffon gown. It's here in this ad on Knoxville craigslist. The woman swears it's Ashton Drake; I know better.
How do I find out how much the Princess Diana wedding doll is worth, including the prince and a flower girl?
By Reyannah from Fallon, NV
Try going on E-Bay and looking for your dolls and see how much other people are asking for theirs. Good luck.

I have a 18 or 20 inch bisque porcelain Princess Diana doll. There were only 5000 made. My doll is printed 1/6000. I have searched for years and found no info. It must be a misprint. It is Ashley Bell and the doll is 2000 limited edition 5000 made. Help me find the value and with how to find a buyer for the best offer. I bought this doll in '98.

Go to eBay and look up your doll and see what others are selling for.
I have had this Princess Diana porcelain doll since 1999. She's wearing a blue sapphire gown. The doll is in great condition with no box. I do have the certificate. I am curious on her value.

I have a Princess Diana porcelain doll that I got before she died. I was just curious as to how much it was worth. It's still in the box with the certificate of authenticity. It's in mint condition.
