Finding the Value of Danbury Mint Porcelain Dolls?

January 22, 2020

I have a Danbury Mint Charity doll which was part of the Children of Virtue collection. I can't find one of these for sale anywhere. Is she rare and how do I find out what she is worth? She is in perfect condition.

Thank you!

People are selling these as low as $10 and all the way up to $350. This does not mean that the doll is worth that much. You need to find out how much your exact doll sold for and not how much a person was asking for the doll. That is when you know how much this doll is worth. Right now dolls sit online and are never sold. Little girls are not interested in dolls these days and that is why the price is so low for the dolls right now.

She is very pretty.

The first link was the retail price if you were to have purchased her new from Danbury Mint.

The second she came off the shelf, her "value" dropped significantly. Sadly the value of dolls drops faster than the value of almost every other commodity.

Dolls from her collection are selling (SOLD prices) not asking, on eBay in the $14-18 dollar range.

While your cutie has not been listed or sold at the moment, unless you can find one that has SOLD at a higher price, the prices I am seeing are most likely standard for your gal and all of those from the series.

It is very sad, but that is the new reality of doll values.

My best guidance would be to hold on to her until the market corrects itself in 10-15 years!

Thanks for sharing your pretty doll!

It is sad to see such pretty dolls have such low value but it is what it is and I cannot see any big change in the near future.
If you are already selling on eBay, you could list your doll for $50 plus shipping with a 'best offer' link and see if anyone makes an offer you could accept. Or lower the price after a couple of months if no one buys or makes an offer.
Sellers post dolls for sale and just leave them posted (some dolls have been posted for years- this is true) and some will never sell even if the price is very low.

You may be able to sell her for a little more money if you list her on a local venue and specify 'pick up only' so no shipping is involved.
Craigslist, LetGo, OfferUp, Facebook Marketplace are good sites to list.
Start your price higher and lower it if no one makes an offer.

Pictures help, but these dolls are collectable to the right buyer. If placing on eBay or Etsy I would do a auction bid with a starting bid. Make sure you stage them well. Make the back ground fun to show them . You want yours to stand out from all others being sold!

Currently there are 7 pages of Danbury Mint dolls listed on eBay for sale. They have such a vast price range and one person is asking over $600 for a NIB Wedding Winter Bliss Special Edition Doll Rustie Danbury Mint 26in 2007. Without photos it makes it even harder to find the dolls you are looking for the value on. You might want to add some images here. Currently most o the dolls listed on these 7 pages are ranging from $17 to $70. I am really not sure the best way to sell them. I do feel your one doll with the diamond earrings and crown will bring in a much higher value than your other dolls. You can try to set your own prices like many people have done on eBay and see what you can sell them for.

Value of almost all dolls is at an all time low and does not look like this will change anytime soon.
Companies overproduced dolls and now seniors are dumping the dolls they bought years ago thinking they would increase in value and this did not happen and the trend for dolls has changed as girls seem to only want their electronics and new cell phones.

You can check eBay and Google for your dolls but just remember that asking prices are just prices a seller wants for their doll as only a sold item represents current value.
Here is a link to eBay dolls from this series. You can place a watch on any listing to see if it sells.

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

Here is eBay link to sold dolls so you can see that no one is paying high prices for these dolls and being in the box does not increase the value very much.

www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=Danbury+Mint...

You may be able to list your dolls on a local venue such as OfferUp, LetGo, Facebook Marketplace and list them as pick up only so no one has to pay shipping and you may be able to realize a higher value.
You can list on more than one site and start your price higher and lower it if no one shows an interest.

Be sure to take good pictures and give size in the description.

People are selling these dolls on eBay from $65 to $139. Each person is asking a different price for the doll. You'll need to look at the listing and compare your doll to the ones selling. From what I can tell they basically all look the same.

You will need to research your doll on Google, eBay, Etsy and other sites. There is a lot of information on the web but value is in the eye of the beholder and someone who is willing to pay.

I have 6 porcelain Cabbage Patch dolls from the Danbury Mint. They are all in excellent condition but do not have their boxes. The dolls I have are: Bobby Joe, Charles Henry, Brittany Nichole, Melissa Ann, and the two 50s kids.

I am wondering what they might be worth?

Different sizes have different values. Also you say no box. Are they still in their plastic sleeves?

Thanks for the additional info.

In today's market (the market changes daily so these values may go up or down):

Bobby Joe and Charles Henry are selling for an average of $8 (sold prices--not asking prices) for dolls that are NEW IN THE BOX. Out of the box, they fetch $3-4 dollars, if they sell...many are sitting unsold on various selling platforms.

Brittany people are asking all over the place amounts from $20-80, but I have not seen one sell or sold. You may want to watch several of the currently listed ones on eBay and see if they sell and what they fetch. That will give you today's current market value.

Melissa is selling (SOLD prices) in the $22 range this an an average as I have seen them as low as $15 and as high as $25.

The 50s kids--I assume you are talking about the 2 boys in cute little outfits. These are currently sitting unsold at a variety of prices.

Since these are very breakable, if you are planning to sell, you would probably do best with a local venue--either selling through a consignment store or selling yourself on a Facebook Marketplace venue--see if your town has FSOT or SWT groups in your area (stands for For Sale Or Trade and Sale Want Trade).

You can always ask high like people do in other venues, and then take best offer.

Post back how your sales go!! Thanks for sharing and getting me the additional info!

These are cute, but sadly there are a GLUT of them on the market right now and are all sitting unsold (some for several years) with asking prices between 29 and 50 dollars.

If you want to prices yours to sell, undercut all of the existing sales and start it in the high teens or low 20s and take best offer.

If you are going to sell it online AND you are in the US you may want to rethink selling it where you have to ship. The new USPS DIM (dimensional mailing) rule makes it very hard to pack it in a box that is big enough to protect it and does not cost an arm and a leg to ship.

With the new system, the box size counts to the weight...so to ship him in a big enough box to protect him may make the shipping cost more than the doll itself. SO FRUSTRATING!!

Maybe try selling local on Facebook Marketplace or see if there are local Facebook Sale/Want/Trade (you will see them listed sometimes as FSOT or SWT (which are abbreviations for For Sale Or Trade and Sale Want Trade). Put your town name in and these abbreviations and find groups or your town name and the phrase flea market.

I have had some luck selling this way!
