Identifying a Porcelain Doll?

I have a beautiful porcelain doll with no markings anywhere. Her arms, legs, and face are porcelain. Does anyone know when she was made and the name?

Without markings, it will be difficult to identify. It was probably made from a kit.

This is very hard to ID a doll like this. There are somany of them made these days that are mass-produced that it makes it even hard to find out about the doll if you can not find any marking on the doll. There are a few doll forums online and they may be able to help you a little more. I would try posting a photo of the doll on there.

How tall is she? Does the wig (hair) come off -- meaning can you see down into the head if it is open or is the head solid and the wig glued on?


Her outfit looks like a home seamstress made it vs. store bought--The seams don't look perfect and there are too many things going on with it (too much poof and ribbons and such). It could be manufactured, but my gut says not. It just looks like a good, but not professional seamstress dressed her.

If she is a kit doll and you don't see any markings in the head, it may be impossible to ID her because there is not going to be an exact match to the dress and paint found anywhere.

I assume you are asking to sell her. My suggestion for that is to just do a basic eBay search for the height Victorian dolls and go over to the sold section to see if they are selling and for how much.

This may be the only way to get comps to find the value. You can always start high and take best offer. If she is as tall as she looks, I would NOT sell her on eBay because of the shipping challenges with a doll that big needing a box that is huge (if you are in the US and are impacted by the dimensional shipping).


Sadly, most of these gals (even the name brands) are selling for very low values--some as low as 99 cents. Adding shipping to the mix can be a deal breaker for many buyers.

Post back with an update! Thanks for sharing!!
