Value of Porcelain Doll

How much is she worth? She is a limited edition. In well condition. She is a Collector's Choice genuine fine bisque porcelain doll. I have kept her since I was about 7 or 8 years of age. Im curious if she is worth something.

The doll market is flooded with all types/brands/sizes of dolls and very few are selling.
Most dolls that do sell are usually in the $2 - $25/35 range but the sell percentage against the for sale listings is very, very low.
Most sellers will list their dolls and just let them relist every month and it's not unusual to find that a doll has been listed for more than a year and most never sell - no matter the doll or the price.
Collector's Choice mass produced all of their dolls and most were sold at K-Mart stores.
I did find one identical doll that sold in August for $9.99 + $10.90 shipping and this is what would be considered 'current value'.

Maybe a few years ago you could have sold this doll for around $25-50. However, today the market for these dolls has been flooded and people are just not buying them at all anymore. There are some people who are desperate to get rid of their dolls and I have seen them listed as low as $1 and still, nobody buys them. Most of the dolls that are sold online are only bringing in around $5-15 for the doll. Some people find it easier to sell the dolls at a swap meet or even a local garage sale. This way when a small child sees the dolls they can ask their mom to buy it for them. Other than this small children do not usually go online doll shopping which makes it even harder to sell dolls like this. The current value of your doll is between 5-15 dollars.

The Collector's Choice brides sell in the $5 to $15 range with the ones in the $15 range often having free shipping, which means sellers pay to ship and that brings their final profit after fees down into the $1-$3 range.


I personally would not sell her online as she is very fragile and if you are no experienced in packing, she may get damaged in transit.

Best to do an in person sale venue--like your local Facebook Sale Want and Trade group or if you have a local consignment store, October and June are the biggest months for weddings (well, they were Pre-Covid), so take her there and have them sell for you.

She is lovely!

Thanks for sharing!

She's lovely, the best way to sell this doll , because right now she doesn't have much of a value. With so many dolls mass produced , and collectors are giving up more of there collection to bring in money . This doll would be better sold locally with no shipping, or maybe a yard/garage sale would bring in more money. At this current state this doll through ebay, etsy, etc, selling between $5 to $20. On any of these sites she would be like a needle in a haystack . Here is what others are asking - www.etsy.com/search?q=collectors%20choice%20dolls...
