I have 2 dolls I recently purchased at a thrift store. They both have tags that read: Vanessa Doll Collection, "The Dream Collection". Series 1996 is sewn on the back and on the tag. Please, if anyone has information on these dolls I would love to know more about them and if they are worth anything. I have done multiple searches and cannot find any doll in this series. I also called the company, but they are no longer in business. Thank you.
I have an authentic Amanda Lenox china doll in the original box. This was given to me from my grandmother who owned a collectibles store. The price tag has a high price, I am not sure it is worth this any longer. I am looking for some info on current value. :)
My grandmother recently purchased a porcelain doll with the K*R logo on its neck under its hair. There is also the name Pat Ginniman below that logo. She has jointed arms and legs and is all porcelain. Her body is not stuffed fabric, but is all porcelain as well. Can you give me an idea on the value of the doll?

Where can I sell some porcelain dolls?
By Marcie from TN
Craigslist. Etsy. Ebay. Amazon. (numerous selling sites online) Local craft consignment store (if there are any). Newspaper or local "thrifty" paper. Garage Sale. Doll Sale (as in a garage sale, but just dolls. Sales like this can be very successful, because they are unusual and draw people only looking for that one item.) There might be some sites for doll or toy selling also. I think I remmember some from the past. Try searching online.
I have a Brass Key Victorian doll with a lamb. How much is this doll worth? I have had it since I was 5 or 6 years old. I am now 19 years old and wish to sell it. She also has the original brass key on her arm as well as the lamb.
I have a porcelain doll with an auction tag on it identifying it as a E McRae from 10/89 with a number on the porcelain parts, S-693. All limbs are marked emc. It has a cloth body, bald head, blue eyes, is 16-17 inches tall, wearing a blue and white dress with lace around neck, wrist, and shoulders and on bottom part of dress. She is also wearing a white pinafore and matching undies.
You should go to the website Etsy.com. They specialize in antique items and have several dolls that are priced.
I have a collection of American Dreams porcelain dolls from a lot of countries. I was wondering how much they are worth. The box says: "American Dreams collection of officially licensed Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island dolls in fine porcelain created for design debut by the Heritage Mint, ltd." The one I'm looking at now is Erin from Ireland. I have many more. Thanks.
Due to hard times and difficulties, I need money to pay my bills. I am selling my porcelain dolls. They are in good shape. Can anyone suggest where I might be able to sell them? Thank you.
You could try ebay. You could also call antique and collectables dealers in your area. What you get for them will depend on age, whether or not you still have the orgional boxes, and certificates of authenticity.
I have several porcelain dolls which are registered and would like to know the value of them.

You can surf the 'net if you know the mfg. of the doll (s) and there's lots of doll books on amazon.com you can buy used if you can't find what you're looking for at your library. Ask doll collectors on the 'net and some will offer their assistance. It's best to present a photo of the ones you're inquiring about ove the 'net.
Get a book from library on antique dolls, good luck.

I have 3 porcelain dolls that belonged to my mother-in-law before she passed away. They have markings on the back of their heads and I have tried to find out the maker, age, etc., but have been unsuccessful. If someone could help that would be great. The markings are:
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?
By Miranda T.
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.
I would like to know the value, it's in its original box, never opened. The doll comes with a certificate and has a # stamped on the back of its head. The Gerber baby is in a christening gown. Any ideas on the value?

I've had this porcelain doll for about 15-20 years. Its a Geppeddo, her name is Grace. She is porcelain all over and it still has the price tag on it. The price tag says $30.95, with blanket included. Grace is praying with her eyes closed. She has never been out of the box. Can you tell me how much it is possibly worth? Thank you!
By Brandy C. from Spartanburg, SC
Etsy.com (a web site for vintage items) has the Geppeddo dolls listed at $35.00.
I have the full collection of four dolls for the "Where Do Babies Come From", porcelain doll collection by Artist Titus Tomescu for Ashton-Drake Galleries. I also have baby Emily-Anne (different collection). I began collecting back in 1996 as a teenager and all dolls have remained in their original boxes and original delivery boxes.
I wanted to know where I would go to sell these and how much I would get?
I paid £50 each for them.

I bought a Mother's Day doll about 15 years ago. It is still in all its original packaging in mint condition. Any ideas of the value today, please?
Hi - these are lovely dolls but most do not have a lot of value. Kinda like the Barbie dolls that cost so much a few years ago and now sell for very little. The best place to check values are on eBay past and present.
Christmas season is the best time to get more money for dolls but you have a special one and Mother's day is coming up so you may see some for sale. You can just Google your doll and find lots of information.
Good luck - they are nice to keep!
I have recently found a beautiful 36 inch porcelain doll in my mother's closet. She looks to be in the original box in mint condition. The box is labeled with World Gallery Dolls and Collectibles and the name of doll is Rachel.
I have 3 dolls. I was looking to find if there was any value to them. They are: Julianne from the Kissed by an Angel Collection, Sam who is a baseball player, and Kelly's True love from Kelly's Irish Adventures.

How much is Valentine Rose by Patricia Rose worth? I have searched eBay and Google to no avail. I can't find one like her. She is a premiere edition in the Treasury Collection. I bought her some years ago from Paradise Galleries. Thank you.

I have a porcelain doll that has been in my family since I was 1, so it's 23 years old. She is a vintage female with a blue dress, hat, tights, shoes, etc. and stands about 3.5 feet tall. I am just curious to how much she is worth. She is still in the box and in fantastic condition. The tag she has underneath her on the box says Artmax, Chicago LTD/ OH 8325. If anyone has any suggestion to how I can find out much she is worth it would be greatly appreciated.

I have some porcelain dolls by Dandee that my husband found in an abandoned house and they are stamped on the neck. I was wondering if they are worth anything. They all look Victorian.
Go to ebay and check the prices. There are so many that it is hard to say. It depends on the particular ones you have the way it looks.
I have 17 mint condition porcelain fairy tale dolls. They are in the original boxes/packaging with authenticity certificates for each, as well as, custom stands for all dolls. They include such dolls as Cinderella, Jack and Jill, Little Miss Muffett, Hansel and Gretel, Lil Bo Beep, and many more, all from Ashton-Drake or Paradise Galleries made in the 80s and early 90s. Any idea what the whole collection is worth?
Go on eBay and see if someone else is selling them. Sadly, I did this for some Ashton Drake dolls I ordered in the 70's and 80's. They are brand new in box with all the papers, etc. When I looked on eBay recently I found they were selling for less than what I paid when I originally bought them. Hopefully, you'll have better luck. Just gives you a good idea of what they are worth now.
I have a porcelain doll with this information on its neck: Lois McCall Hildd, copyright 1986, J.D.K. Jr. 1914 gesgeson, N1070, NODIEN 16 Germany. the hands, elbows, knees and ankles are all jointed.

I would like to know how much money I could get for a Diana porcelain doll? It has the dress on like Princess Diana wore and has the crown and shoes.
By Latisha from Dadeville, AL
Go to eBay and look up your doll and see what others are selling for.
I have searched the internet, eBay, Amazon, etsy, etc., and I can't find anything on my porcelain doll. It is a blond doll with blue eyes riding a white carousel horse. Here is what I can't find: the back of her neck reads: a & o 1999 6348/7500. I found a similar one that was Brinn's, but that is not what is on her neck. If you have any info on this doll, I would really appreciate it!
