Identifying a Porcelain Doll?

Identifying a Porcelain Doll - doll with wingsI found one tag on this doll identifying it as an old product from Collections, Etc., but I can't find the model, name, or year anywhere. Any help would be much appreciated!

Collections Etc have been around since the late 1990s, if I remember right, and had/have lines of dolls and home decor. They are a US based group...somewhere in the midwest.

They jumped in to the doll bandwagon as it started to wane (most doll markers started in the late 1970s and early 1980) an they made lower end dolls that were designed to be collectible to those who could not afford the "luxury dolls". Sadly both the luxury and lower end lovely are not collectible or worth even half of their original costs. It is heartbreaking.

They usually did not name their dolls. They also did not really use models or any identifying marks (unless they had certificates of authenticity, which I can't remembering them having.

They were going for "timeless" which was supposed to make the dolls more valuable.

While I can't find your exact gal online either listed or sold, I find some similar, all sitting unsold at the $12-15 range.

Maybe closer to Christmas they will fetch something (probably in the $5-10 range and best sold at local venues where you don't have to ship because now--in the US--shipping costs more than the dolls, sometimes by 3 times the value.

I so wish I had better news for your lovely gal!! If you have a child who would love her, that is your best bet or keep and enjoy her!! She will look very cute on a shelf or chair or bench!!

Thanks for sharing her!

This doll was made in the last 20 years are so. They are mass-produced, and are worth $25 or less. I wouldn't put too much effort into identifying it further.

These dolls are not that old and if I can remember correctly they started to make them around 1990 to 1995. They mass produced the dolls back then and today they do not have much of a value at all.

Most people end up giving them away for such a low price. You are looking at a price of $15 to $20 if you want to sell the doll.
