These limited Fourth of July dolls appear to be listed for between $5.00 and $15.00 for online sales. The value may go up with the box and certificate of authenticity.

The doll is marked 193/1500 on the back of its neck. The music box plays "Send In The Clowns". Music box is sewn in. There is a metal grommet on its clothes where the music box key goes thru.

Any info you could give would be greatly appreciated.

I have bought a few of the porcelain clown or musical jesters for my mom in the past. I think I still have one of them and it is sitting in a drum or what looks like a drum and the jester is on top and plays music. The company mass produces these music boxes and when you see the number 193/1500 that means that the company has made 1500 of these same dolls and yours was the 193rd one produced by the company. I did take a look at the one I have here and there is no name on it at all.

it just has the name of the company and the same type of information as you have. The one that is here right now that I am shipping off or back to the US has the number on it 18/2000. So you see the company mass produces these items. Even though it is a music box doll they are still not selling for top dollar. Most people are earning around $5-15 for normal dolls and ones with a music box in them seem to earn just a little more for theirs. The doll is worth around $15-25 tops.

I found this at a thrift store, I'm not a collector nor do I know anything about dolls really. It was more of a joke gift with a friend, but I realized it might have some value after discovering the brand and that it says limited edition.

If not, it's completely fine. I'm just curious really about the value, where it came from, etc. Value of a Brinn Porcelain Doll? - red haired doll in a pink dress

Dolls of all brands/sizes/character are so plentiful that it's really a waste of time to try and sell regular dolls at this time.
I'm not saying values will improve as I believe the doll market is definitely not going to improve as so many people are just trying to downsize and usually, no one in their families want anything to do with 'dolls'.

There are presently over 1,000 Brinn dolls listed for sale on eBay and less than 100 have sold over the past several months.
You can check out the sold listings to see what people are actually paying for these dolls and I think you'll decide to keep her or give her to someone that would like a very pretty doll.

Limited Edition was a catch-all that manufacturers used to fool people into believing the dolls would one day be valuable. They could have been correct if the Internet had not exploded with eBay, Amazon, Etsy and others joining in.

I did not find your doll but as a general rule Brinn's dolls have very low value. Most dolls sell for under $25 dollars and most often they sell for less than $10. Dolls like this are so highly mass produced that no doll has any true value.

Many Brinn dolls on EBay from $5 to $30+. If you think your doll is worth more, you can take it to doll collector or check this site:

An easy online search for "porcelain doll values" will produce many answers. Keep in mind that just because a doll may be fancy, old, inherited, etc., it most probably has little value as most are mass produced in the thousands and very often include the rather misleading term limited edition in their names.

A doll's condition is extremely important in considering value-the best doll prices are paid for dolls literally never removed from their boxes. You can find prices for some dolls on EBay and try online for further research. This site is a good place to start:

Currently on eBay and Esty there are so many dolls being sold at the moment that the market has been flooded. People are just not interested in buying these dolls. The company who has made this doll mass produced them and the sale price is very low.

Most of them are only sold for $5 if a person is willing to buy it now. You may get lucky to get a few extra dolls for this doll if you try to sell it locally in your area. The most that people are willing to pay for such dolls right now is $15.

These dolls have a very low resale value and it is very hard to sell them. I have seen them going for as low as $1 and as high as $25. On average you should get around $5 to $15 for this doll. Reason being the dolls are mass-produced and the company normally makes between 1000 to 2000 of the same doll.

Cute gal!! Most Brinn dolls are not selling in any venue, which is quite sad.

The few I have seen sell, have consistently sold in the 4.99 to 9.99 range + shipping.

If she were mine, I would either try to sell her in a local venue so there is no shipping, or I would hold on to her for another 10-15 years or so until the doll market comes back.

The doll market is at an all time low with a supply probably at 20-30 times what the demand is. Sadly, that has driven selling prices (values) down to the subfloor.

Thanks for sharing! I so wish I had better news for you.

This is not quite the best time of year to determine value. I say that because value in today's market is only what people will actually PAY for an item, vs. what a book says or people ask for it online.

At the moment, there are three unsold Brinn nativities. Since there is not a photo, I can't do an exact match to your set...but you should be able to follow this link to look at them and match yours apples to apples (exact matching is important to the process as there may be a similar one of huge value or lesser value and you want to know YOUR piece's value...not a like one):

www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313...

In a few weeks (Christmas in July), you may start seeing SOLD auctions...which is the only way to help you put a value on your set.

I recommend doing regular searches for your exact set as a current auction and set up an eBay watch so you can see if it sells, how long it took and the price someone paid for it. That will give you an idea of current market value.

I know there were a lot of these produced and they were very popular, so it also becomes a supply and demand issue if the supply exceeds the demand it drives the price down.

The very best time to determine value will be October/November as people are starting to access their holiday decorating needs...but the July look can get you started.

Hope this gets you a good start to figure out the value.

When I first retired in mid-85's, I got hooked on the doll collections sold on hsn.com. I bought several Brinn, Heritage, etc., and don't expect them to have become more valuable.

So now I am taking these dolls, crocheting neat clothes for them, and hopefully for those doll lovers (not necessarily collectors) they may want to buy them from me.

Aww! So sweet! The Brinn christening dolls are listing on line for around 9.99 but most are sitting unsold.

Part of the challenge is a glut of dolls on the market. The other part is the USPS changed their mailing protocols and now with the new dimensional mailing the cost to mail a doll cross country is often more than the price of the doll.

That has caused the market (which was already bad) to be even worse.

Perhaps if you hold on to her, she will retain value in 10+ years,
