Selling a Porcelain Doll Collection?

I have 3 large boxes full of porcelain dolls I have collected as a child. I would like to sell them all as I need to make room. Most of them are still in boxes and have never been removed from the boxes. Can you help me please?

You need to know what the manufacturer is and when the doll was made. Markings can be found on the doll's neck, back or feet. Once you know that you can go to dollreference.com and start researching.

Watch E-bay for about 2months too see how much your dolls are worth.Do not go by listed prices but the actual sales of the dolls.That should give you an idea of what they are worth.The fact they are still in the original boxes, and most likely in mint condition will make them worth more money.

Before selling the dolls it is important to identify all of them. You can find out about the dolls from the boxes or even look on the dolls back or neck area. Once you know about your dolls you can then sell them. A lot of people list dolls on eBay and they don't sell quickly.

You might want to have a small yard sale in front of your home and put the dolls out to sell. You will receive about the same money selling them like this as you do on eBay. Plus, selling them at a yard sale or church function means you don't need to ship them to the buyer. Most dolls sell for 20 to 50 dollars depending on the doll.

You should make a chart identifying them and take photos of them. You can go two ways: sell them individually or for possibly less in a "lot". The ones you have in boxes are worth more possibly, but you never know, you might have a gem lingering in there :) Do get a count and a feel for the years and manufacturers, that will help you get more bang for your buck.
