Identifying Porcelain Dolls?

Identifying Porcelain Dolls  - curly haired doll wearing a pink dress with white laceI bought four different dolls I would like to know about. I don't care about how much they would be worth now, but would like to know names, by whom they were created, year they were created, and how much they were sold for when they were created. I have only two names for the dolls because they came with a tag that had their names. I would love to know more about them. Any and all answers will be very much appreciated. Thank you.

I would post the pictures and questions to the forum at www.dollreference.com. These dolls are mass-produced and worth $25 or less. You may have to spend a lot of time researching dolls that are not worth much. It is up to you, of course.

Boy do I wished I had saved all of my old materials from when I worked in various stores selling dolls to give you exact sold prices back when they were new.

Part of that process is going to be a challenge as stores had various prices. For example, if you bought it in a Hallmark you may have paid up to 20 or 30 dollars more than if you had bought the same doll in a department store.

Dolls averaged $20 to $100 new. Some--the really fancy ones with cases and stands, could top out in the mid to high $200s.

All of your dolls appear to be from the 1980s and the 1990s.

Finding their exact names and exact years--even with the tags be impossible because some of the companies did not name the dolls because they wanted the new owner to name them and makers wanted the dolls to appear "timeless" which they did to give the allure that they were going to be valuable in the future.

Doll 1 is a Crimson Collection gal. There is a lot on line about these dolls and you will find hundreds on eBay and Etsy for sale so you can see if you can find an exact match to yours to learn more. You may find the exact match where the owner tells when he/she bought it and how much they paid new.

Doll 2 appears to be a Patricia Rose gal. You can see if someone from her website can authenticate her:

Doll 3 is from the Cathay Collection.There are thousands and thousands of these dolls online for sale. They were primarily found in North America (mostly US). They are one of the most commonly found dolls out there. Learning more specifics about these is hard because you have to wade through so many to learn about them.

Doll 4 is a House of Global doll. They were made by J. A. Designs. I didn't sell these, so I am not as familiar with them. They were called Art Dolls when new.

There are a bunch of doll sites on Facebook that may be able to give you the level of detail you are asking for. My favorites are:

"Let's Id our dolls!!!"

and

"Porcelain doll collector's + accessories buy and sell"

You have to ask to join these groups. They folks on there are very nice.

Post back if they can give you more specifics! Thanks for sharing!
