This is very little information to go on. You can send the picture to the forum at www.dollreference.com if no one here recognizes it.

What size is she (how tall)? There were many brands that made pioneer style dolls (the outfit is a modified pioneer style--a more true pioneer would be long).

The "big brand" makers--like Ashley Drake and Seymour Mann usually had their dolls signed on the back (mostly the back of the neck under the hair). The number you give is probably just the mold number for the head or body. Sadly it doesn't help ID her.

She looks to be anywhere from 1990 to 2000, but it is hard to pin it down...she could be as old as from the 1980s or as new as a few years ago.

The "new dolls" most everything after the 1960s have a "generic" look to them that is hard to date. They did that on purpose as they were trying to emulate old dolls and cash in on the values that a true antique doll fetched back in the 1980s.

Without more info it will be hard to ID and date your lovely unless someone happens to recognize her right off the bat. I sold thousands of dolls back when they started being hot, and her face and outfit are just too common so she does not stand out in my memory banks.

There are some nice Facebook groups that can help you. The one I like is called Doll & Toy Identification Help, the other one I like is let's id our dolls!!! (how I have them typed is how they are named on FB so you can copy this name and paste it in the FB search bar, answer their questions and join the gang!

DO NOT ask for values on either of these sites...they are only to ID dolls. If you start talking money, they will kick you off.

Once they ID her, come back and let me know and I can help you with the value (if that is the path you are going down). I can tell you generally, she has not held her value and a sale would be low. I am guesstimating under $20. Could even be less unless my memory is totally off and she is a super sought after gal, but I am usually pretty good about remembering the gals that have held their value.

The doll market is just at an all time low at the moment, which I find SO SAD.

Looking forward to helping you if you get her name! Blessings!
