Value of Leonardo Dolls?

We have these 3 vintage Leonardo porcelain dolls I am trying to value them to sell. They are named Jessica, Natalie, and Courtney. I have searched everywhere on Google for information on them but I can not find anything at all. It's like they don't exist. I have looked on eBay but nothing there. Could this mean they are a rare edition and have not been mass produced? Does anyone know where I could get them valued, please? Thanks

These are all mass-produced dolls that have gone down greatly in value and do not sell well.

There may be some rare and valuable Leonardo porcelain dolls but I have never found one that was not duplicated at one time or another.
It is not always easy to find these dolls searching by name because if you check listings posted for sale you will probably find at least 50% do not list a doll's name. Not everyone still has the name tag available even if the doll is new in the box.
The next problem is that most of the doll companies used/repeated the name several times so not all dolls named 'Jessica' will be the same doll as yours. Very few buyers actually care about a doll's name so a name does not necessarily increase the value of a doll or help with the length of time it may take to sell a doll.

The doll market is flooded and it does not appear that it will improve in the future; in fact, most market analysts predict it will remain the same or loose value but not increase. Predictions are usually on a 10 year basis.

You can look at Leonardo dolls on Google and check any of the listings to see what sellers are asking for their dolls. Although an asking price only represents what a seller would like to receive for their items but only a sold price will show value as this represents what someone was willing to pay for that item.

Your dolls are very nice and still in the box but I do not believe these dolls would be valued at more than $35-$50. This might happen if very good pictures and a good description was presented.

If you feel that your dolls are more valuable then you could always list them at a higher price - even $150 or more with all offers considered and if no one makes an offer after several weeks/months you could lower the price ans wait again.
If you are an inexperienced seller be sure to pack dolls very carefully as they are fragile and shipping can be dangerous as placing fragile on the box does not mean very much to inexperienced or exhausted workers.

They are beautiful, and it helps that they are in good condition and still in the box. If you want to sell them this would go in your favor. There are a lot of this brand of dolls online. The asking prices range from $15 to $60 . There are not selling for that price. I would suggest a bid pricing with a start price, and good staging to drive the price up. - www.etsy.com/search?q=leonardo%20porcelain%20doll...

Hi,

Do they have the hang tags and any other Leonardo paperwork (like a Certificate of Authenticity) in the boxes?

Where are you seeing the girl names--on the box, on the hang tag?

How tall are they?

Are they marked on their necks (under their hair) with anything?

I don't remember a Leonardo Doll have a cameo, but that is not to say that there weren't ones--the stores I worked in did not get every doll of a maker in our inventory, but I do remember other brands having dolls with pins on their dresses.

Why I am asking is to make sure they are not miss-boxed.

The top two look too big for the box and the faces look more like Brinn dolls than Leonardo. Again, I am going by memory, so I could be wrong.

Maybe with more info, I can help. Unfortunately, the value may still be the same (which is low--95% of dolls are high supply, low demand--but it is important to know what you have!). Hopefully with more info, I can help you get the facts together so you can be protected when you sell them to make sure you are matching dolls and boxes so you don't have an unhappy buyer!

Looking forward to more info! Thanks!
