Porcelain Doll Collection?

I have a decent collection of porcelain dolls. Some of which haven't been removed from their packaging, and some that have been a little worn down from being displayed on my shelf. I have no idea what these beautiful dolls are worth. I have seen that most have been mass produced, but I am just generally looking to see how much the entire collection would be worth?

They look lovely! Doll prices are all over the board from worthless to worth something.

My suggestion is to go to eBay and find each doll and look for sold prices. (The sold button is on the left when you scroll down on a computer or tablet). Not sure if you do it on a phone where it is located.

Match the doll exactly to get the prices.

If there are none sold, unclick the sold button and just look at completed and see what they ARE NOT selling for. This means that your doll may sell if someone priced it lower. Only SOLD prices tell you today's market value. If there is more than one sale at different prices, you have to average the prices together.

Doll collections (whole lots) are hard to sell. Those are best done at an auction or consignment store or you could try Facebook Marketplace or Next Door or LetGo for a local pick up.

It is best to try to sell them one by one--which is time consuming, but it is the best way to get full value for each doll...vs. good doll's value being pulled down by a doll in the lot that is "worthless" meaning not selling (they all have worth as a lovely doll...I am only talking about what someone will PAY for them).

The other challenge is the doll market is soft and IF someone wants a doll...they may be looking for ONE to finish his/her collection, not a whole collection.

When you sell dolls online, be sure to box and weigh the doll and DO NOT let eBay calculate postage. Do the calculation yourself (you may need to click on the advanced seller tab. Enter the box measurements and the actual weight. You can add a dollar or so for handling here also.

I was trying to find the Belle doll to give you a value, but there are about a dozen different box versions of Belle Barbie and I would need to know the year and the size to give you a better value. There were WAY too many to sort through to try to match the boxes to the photo :(

Post back with updates! Blessings!! Thanks for sharing.

Most of the dolls are $25 or less. I would sell as a lot at a reduced price. Try eBay and Etsy.
