Identifying a Porcelain Doll?

What is this doll worth? What type of doll is it? Is this doll rare? I put a picture of the only manufacturer mark on it that I could find. It is on the nape of the neck and says either 2204 or 1204.

This is a mass-produced doll that has little or no value.

I just answered your other doll post and sadly, this one is going to ahve almost the same info.


She looks to be newer (1990s or later--quite frankly she could be just a few years old) doll.

How tall is she? If she is 10 inches or smaller, she may sell for $5-10 online.

If she is 10 inches or taller, she may sell between $10-15 online.

I can't read the numbers, but I can tell you that she also, most likely came with a box, and a hang tag, maybe a certificate of authenticity. Without those, it may be almost impossible to tell exactly what brand she is. And without these the value may be even less (sadly).


The same goes for her dress vs. her--you may fetch more for the outfits for both, than the dolls.

If she were mine (and I am a very long time reseller and have sold many dolls in my resale live), I would hold on to her and hope she gains value in 10-15 years.

Thanks for sharing her too! Blessings!

Cute dolls.
The problem with dolls right now is that the market is flooded with every brand/type/size and very few are selling. The ones that do sell are probably within the $10-$25 range and many have been listed for a very long time - even years in some cases.
We would hope the market would improve in the next 10 years but market planners do not think so. Most reports expect the doll manufacturing company to either change to another item or close their doors. Many companies have switched to a very cheap, almost 'throw away' doll that is manufactured in China and costs the companies only a few cents instead of the higher cost of making nicer dolls.
I hope you like your dolls but I do not believe you will find a 'brand' name for the dolls and even if you did, the value would still be in the low less than $25 area.
Now would be a good time to find someone who is still interested in dolls would break into a smile if presented with one of these lovelies.

This would be a generic doll, that is mass produced. The value is lower because of it. The going rate for this doll is under $15. There are so many online for sale. They tend to do a little better when they are new and in the box unopened. Because of Covid , there are not that many buying dolls except maybe as a Holiday gift. Perhaps you could donate to a child that is having a hard time this season. It would truly bring a smile, that's worth more!
