Identifying a Vintage Doll?

A vintage doll.I found this doll at Goodwill Outlet, and it looks antique. The fabric torso seems age stained, and her clothes seem old. Her face looks hand painted. Her face, legs/feet, and arms/hands seem like porcelain or bisque. Her feet make a clinking noise when tapped together, and feel kind of sandy/gritty when rubbed together. The back of her neck has markings on it, and we believe we found the manufacturer, Alresford crafts in England. (I'm not completely sure so please correct me if I'm wrong).


She is in very good condition, no chips, no cracks, no breaks. Her clothing contains undergarments of a slip, and pants. She has a dress, socks, shoes, and a ribbon in her hair. We looked online and could find dolls similar to her, but not exactly. How old is she? What is she worth? Is she actually vintage? My hopes aren't too high, but it would be fun to know if she was at all valuable. Please let me know if there's anything else you need to know. Thank you!

I cannot see the markings on the neck but it appears you may have the correct brand name.
I'm not familiar with this brand but from research online it appears these dolls are from the early 80s and are dressed in older-style clothes.
The value of the dolls seems to go from lows to highs and mainly according to condition.
Really nice dolls with maybe original box and papers may be asking $100 or more but dolls similar to yours may only be in the $30-$40.


However, dolls of all brands are usually a slow selling item; sometimes sales may take months/years to sell.

You can check some of these links to see if the dolls have similar features: eyes, hands, feet, material and markings.

Google always has good sites for dolls:
