Identifying Porcelain Dolls?

Identifying Porcelain Dolls - blonde doll wearing a floral dress with a red collarI bought four dolls from a flea market. I would like to know their origin. A couple of the dolls seem to be modified. A picture of the original would be great so I can restore them. There are no markings on the dolls. Except for one of them, it has a tag.

These are mass-produced dolls which have little value.

If you are sure you checked each doll for markings/symbols (back, neck. hair line) then most likely these are mass produced dolls and will be very low in value and mostly difficult to identify.


  • You may search on line for each doll by pictures but the task would be daunting and probably unsuccessful as there may be over 6 or 700,000 dolls such as this listed on eBay on any given day.
  • Maybe not the same sizes or designs but very similar type dolls. Their values will usually run from $4 - $50 but may not ever sell as there are so many to choose from.
  • There is not a way for anyone to identify a doll without some type of markings or symbols but you may be able to get help from one of the doll forum with the doll that has the certificate.
  • You can post pictures/size and ask your questions as these are "doll" people and know a lot more about dolls than most of ThrifyFun members.
  • Hope you have some success as they may even be able to help you with the other dolls (but - please - only ask questions about ONE doll at a time).

    This is an excellent site to get you started.

Beautiful dolls - hope you can be pleased with your purchase and enjoy these beauties.

As long as there is no marking on the dolls to indicate who make the dolls it will be very hard to find an original photo of them. In most cases, these types of dolls are mass produced and not worth much at all. Even restoring them won't increase the value of the doll.

I know this isn't exactly answering your question about identifying these lovelies. The others gave you the news that it is not going to be easy and sadly most dolls, even restored didn't hold their value.


My suggestion is something I wish I had the talent to do I am trying, but haven't quite figured it out yet...which is turning them into a ooak (one of a kind) horror doll. IF you have looked lately on eBay to see what sells you will see horror dolls sell.

I am fascinated horror dolls:

You could create quite the niche market with this type of doll if you are so inclined to do that. Around Halloween, the prices skyrocket in my area. It is amazing! If you master it, please make and post YouTube videos... I haven't found any yet that have helped me get this all to be a ghoulish reality!

There is such a glut of dolls out there. I am trying to capitalize on them with low low buying prices and flipping them into ooak art pieces!

Good luck!
