One more question about markings...as I am learning about my new passion for dolls is some are marked under the hair (on the back of the neck) or even on the scalp itself. I have an old Russian doll with the marking well into the hairline that I would have missed if I hadn't been fussing with it one day.

If there still isn't anything, some tricks I have learned if you know any history of the item (like approximate year it was gifted to you, or better yet year it was purchased or even the store where it was purchased) you can sometimes the doll's exact name and manufacturer just by Googling old advertisements and looking for a match to the face (using just the clothes isn't always accurate if it was a played with doll as the original clothes may be long gone).

What I have found are there are ZILLIONS of old Sear's toy catalogues on the web you can look through (as an example). So if I knew I was gifted something in the 60s, I may start there and type the search into google Sears Catalog 1960s baby dolls. If you were gifted the doll in the 60s, but it was a hand me down from an older cousin, you could extend your search to 50s and 60s.

It takes some leg work, but with even a few pieces of info, you can learn a lot.

Good luck with your search!

Undress the doll and look for markings. It will be hard to identify without them.
