Identifying Porcelain Dolls?

I would like to know the names and values of these three gorgeous porcelain dolls. The one in the green dress is from the Tiffany 2000 collection.

First off there are so many dolls online these days and produced each year, it is hard to narrow down the search without more information. You need to look on the back of the dolls head and see if there are any markings at all. Find out who made the doll and let us know this one.

Just looking at the dolls I would guess they fall into the category of mass-produced dolls and their value ranges from $0.99 to $25. I could be wrong but without more information about the dolls, this is the best any of us can do to help you out. Please post some more details about the dolls so we can give you some more information about them.

Thanks for sharing?

How tall are they?

What material are they made of--like are the heads porcelain or bisque? (Porcelain is smooth, bisque is a little rougher.)

Are the bodies plastic or fabric and if fabric? If fabric, what are they stuffed with--straw, sawdust, fiberfill, beans?

Do the clothes have any tags in the seams and if so, can you share photos?

For the one that is a Tiffany Collection, are you speaking of a Tiffany Pacini Collection Porcelain Doll? Most of these dolls did not have "names" because they were sold for the new owner to name and love them.

That brand was quite popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s and in the resale market today, the dolls that are pristine in the box, never played with may sell for $5-8, if they sell. Most are (sadly) sitting unsold for as low as $3.99. Unboxed dolls may fetch 1/2 of that.

Unfortunately, if the other dolls are from the same era, their values will be about the same as the Tiffany gal. There is just a glut of "newer" dolls on the market right now (which means a doll made from 1970s to now).

If we can figure out if the other gals are older and who made them, they may have a higher resale value. With more info, maybe I can help.

Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to learning more!

The doll market is overflowing with this type of doll and most will not be sold no matter the brand, style, size, condition or price.
eBay is still considered the largest doll selling site in the world and right now eBay alone has over 97,000 'porcelain' dolls listed for sale.
If you check their site you can look on the left and see all the different information that can be associated with each doll - but dolls without a brand name just get lost in the mix.

Take a look at any of the dolls and you will see gorgeous dolls (just as pretty as yours) and even the asking price may only be $3.00. Asking prices are just the amount a seller would like to receive for their doll and does not represent the current value.

www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2323012...

The following is the site on eBay that shows dolls sold over the past several months and these may in some manner indicate what a similar doll might sell for but how long it would take to sell is anybody's guess - moths/years.
Dolls sold looks like a little over 19,000 so that is about 20% of dolls listed - not a good percentage and most likely there will be approximately 135,000 dolls listed when the holidays get closer.
Check out the prices someone was willing to pay - usually a very low amount.

I would suggest you list your dolls on a local site like Craigslist, Nextdoor, OfferUp, LetGo and have 'pick up only' so no shipping cost would be involved.

Start you price high and lower it if necessary.
You will need several very good pictures of each doll and any brand names with pictures of any markings.

If this is not what you would like to do then perhaps you could donate them to the holiday drive 'Toys for Tots' when the holidays are closer.

You need to undress the doll and look for identifying markings on the back of the neck, the back and the bottoms of the feet. My hunch is that they are mass produced dolls worth $10 or less.
