Identifying a Porcelain Doll

I got this doll and it did not come in a box or anything, but I looked all over her and I don't see a name or anything. Could someone please help me?

Normally the name will be on the back of the neck, her back or on the bottom of the feet. This is where famous doll makers mark their dolls.

You'll need to look there first, if you can't find anything at all on the doll it more than likely will be mass produced and that means it isn't worth too much at all. There are thousands of dolls each year that are mass produced. These dolls normally will sell for $10 to $25 at the most.

You need to undress the doll and look for the markings on the neck, back and bottoms of feet.

There are several companies that mass produce dolls (mostly foreign countries) and sell to smaller retail stores. This does not mean they are not pretty dolls but just dolls that are sold wholesale to different chain stores - like drugstores, Toy biz, etc.

  • It would be very difficult for someone to put a name to an unmarked doll.
  • The dolls are more or less generic (with no markings) that can be sold wholesale for a small amount of money.

  • If you are interested in selling you might be able to sell for $10-$20 but it may take a very long time to sell.
  • Sorry to maybe disappoint you but you may have difficulty selling this doll for even $10. One reason is there are probably over 200,000 unbranded dolls listed on eBay and Etsy (the two main doll selling sites) at any given time. Of course, this will be all sizes/material/types of dolls but still, a lot of no brand dolls.
  • There is a site on eBay that identifies and evaluates dolls for a fee of $4.00 but I am not sure even she can help you but it might be worth a try. If you are interested, here is her web site.
  • www.ebay.com/.../292305836712?hash=item440ec91aa8...
  • Sometimes these dolls sell more quickly on a local site like Craigslist as there would be no shipping involved.
  • Be sure to look on her back and neck for markings as sometimes they are very faint and easy to miss.

If the doll is of any value you will find makers of the manufacture some where on the body of the doll, also have you checked the inside of the dolls clothes.
