Identifying a Porcelain Doll

I've had this doll for as long as I can remember, and as far as I know it's in the original clothing with the original stand. However the serial number is where the head meets the neck and it's really hard to read it. I think it says either 018B or 818B and my google searches aren't showing much. I got this a long time ago from my grandmother, but since she and that side of the family let me go I don't want to keep something that reminds me of her.

Take it to an antiques dealer or a doll dealer. If it is worth something, sell it and buy something that will give you pleasure.

You sound like you may be young so I hope you will give this a lot of thought before getting rid of everything from your past. I am sorry that you do not have fond memories of your grandmother but many time there are extenuating circumstances that may not come to light until many years later so - please - do not be in any rush/hurry to remove all of this from your life. Maybe someone can help you put some things away for a few years and maybe make your decisions then.
Your doll is lovely but without a name we are at a loss as to help you with identifying this doll and even if a number was legible it would not be enough unless you were showing it to a real doll expert and those are difficult to find.

eBay auction site has a lot of doll experts that give free answers if you want to take several photos and post to their community board. You will also need to give measurement and show back of head and legs/shoes.

She reminds me of one of my granddaughters. Have you sold it?
I'm sorry that you have been hurt.
