Selling Porcelain Dolls?

Selling Porcelain Dolls - doll wearing a long peach colored dress trimmed with laceI have many porcelain dolls and I can't seem to find them online. Some look like vintage clothing. I have one particular her name is Vicky from Emerald Doll Collection, but I can't find her either. How can I find out which ones are worth more so I can sell them and get the most for them?

Your dolls pictured all look like 1990s-2000 dolls, which I am sad to tell you have very little value in the resale market.

That you can't find info on them is not surprising to me as most sellers are "flippers" and have no clue how to list the dolls.

The one you are calling Vicky, I found her eBay listed only as Porcelain Doll Emerald Connection. She is sitting unsold at 16.99.

When doing your searching for dolls put the brand name in the search engine and then search through all of the listings and you may find a match for yours. Use the SOLD listings to give you today's market value.

Sometimes, if there are too many in the search, I will narrow down by height or by hair color or dress color. If nothing comes up, I take the brand name out and try things like doll and the color of the dress or doll and the height.

If these were my dolls, I would take them to a consignment store and let them sell them for me. Most likely these will not sell as a lot (people are trying to get rid of their own dolls) and may sell one at a time if someone is trying to complete a collection. These folks will not want all the dolls, just the one they need--so one at a time is the way to go.

The main reason I would take them to a consignment store to sell is because these dolls are super fragile and if you are not experienced packing something this breakable, they will not get to the new home in one piece. Second is that the cost of shipping them correctly is so expensive that most buyers won't buy them online. Best to have someone fall in love in person and take her home.

If you do want to sell them on your own, you can start them each at $20 and take best offer which could be as low as 99 cents.

Just be sure if you do an online sale you DO NOT offer free shipping and have the doll packaged and ready to ship--weighed and measured so eBay can calculate the shipping price correctly. NEVER use eBay's method to calculate shipping. It is almost always wrong.

Post back with how your sale goes. I am happy to give you other selling tips if you need them!

You can do a little research on this site - instappraisal.com/.../emerald-doll-collection-0 for appraisals. But right now these dolls are selling for close to nothing at all.
