I have a 15 inch white baby angel lying in its stomach with its head turned towards her left shoulder, hands and feet extended, blond hair, hazel eyes, mouth slightly parted with tongue slightly sticking out, white sash crown and pink flower/lavender ribbons on left side of head, lavender outfit and wings. Please tell me the value of this doll.

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 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 Cathay dolls on EBay listed $6.00 to $150.00. This site is a good place to start for more values:

As to value, there would be no fixed price. Your best bet is to keep an eye on the sales of similar dolls, say eBay or other on-line sites, and gather an idea from them. Good luck!

I have a Cathay Collection porcelain doll, it is in great condition, has never been used and has been sitting in a closet for years. It came with a certificate of authenticity, stating it is limited edition. It also says it is number 78 out of 5,000, and it says the doll's name is "Vanessa" and has a certified signature. Does anyone know if this doll is worth anything? Or where I can find out more about the value, about it, or something? I can't find anything on the internet about it. Thank you

5000 is a lot of dolls. This doll is neither old nor rare, so it has little to no value.

I am trying to find the value of Cathay Collection porcelain Anna Doll 1-5000. Does anyone know the value of this doll? I'm not finding it anywhere online.

Value of your doll:

  1. Every single doll that is listed on eBay claims it is 1 - 5000.
  2. Advertisement

  3. I think this is very misleading and many of the dolls are the same.
  4. However, most of the dolls start selling at $10 to $80.
  5. Many doll certificates are so misleading and they claim they are limited editions.
  6. However, these dolls are mass produced and sold by the thousands.
  7. I would estimate that your doll is worty around $30 to $40 only.

These dolls are mass-produced. Your doll is one of 5000. They also were recently made. For those reasons, they are not worth much, even if never taken out of the box.

I love your doll, now I recently bought from an acquaintance the Edna, and I want to know when she was made. But I guess these dolls costs maybe around 20-80$plus its value, like how old it is.

I received a Cathay Collection porcelain doll when my grandmother passed away. It's number 1400 of the 1-5000 collection. There is an engraving on the neck that has the letters NISI. Just curious to know how much it may be worth.

Can you tell me her size? Is she 16 inches? Is the hair red or blonde? Also, do you know her name...meaning is she one of the fairy series...box, papers, certificate of authenticity?

There are lots of similar dolls but I would need the additional info to give you a good estimate. As a series of 5,000 while limited, there is often more supply than demand which drives prices down. Some still have high demand, which keeps prices up. Just wanted to be sure I am getting you an apples to apples estimate.

Also, was she played with? Original clothes? Does she have any flaws? Condition matters a lot with dolls. I would like to help with more info!

There are about 500 Cathay Porcelain dolls presently listed on eBay so without more information it will be difficult to provide very much information.
Your certificate is too small and blurred to read so please provide more information.

Post back with anything that is written on the certificate (a large picture of the certificate would be good). Provide pictures of any markings on her back or neck also.
List anything you know about her and especially her height (very important).
Pictures of her box might be of benefit also.

Without knowing anything about your doll I can only show a doll that may be similar that is presently listed on eBay (she appears to be smaller than your doll and size makes a big difference in present value).

I am not seeing any matching her exactly on eBay or online, but that doesn't mean she is rare, just that she has not come up today for sale. The market changes daily, so tomorrow there could be bunches of them!

The best way to find her exact value is to check back to eBay or Google weekly and find the identical lovely that has SOLD, DO NOT USE asking prices to value your dolls. Sold tells you exactly what someone will pay for your doll.

The reason it is so important to find an exact match is most dolls have not held their value, but there are a few ringers out there that have and you want to know exactly how much your doll is worth in today's market. Finding a sold example is the only way to know this.

Good luck! Let me know when you find it!
