Value of Porcelain Doll?

A porcelain doll wearing a coat and hat.This is a doll that was given to me years ago by a friend. It is a Collector's Choice by Dandee doll and I can't find it online with any of my searches. It has a slight chip of paint on the base but is otherwise in good condition. She has not got a label or box with her. She has blonde curly hair, blue eyes, blue velvety dress and zebra print coat, bag and accessories. How much would this doll be worth if I did sell it? Thanks.

It is sad but dolls are just not on very many people's list of 'wanted items' anymore - not even very many young girls - most are into cell phones and electronics.
There are presently over 700 Collector's Choice by DanDee dolls listed for sale on eBay and the market estimate states that less than 10% will sell even in this high season market.

Almost all brands/sizes/styles of dolls that sell will sell for less than $25 and some of these dolls could have been listed for sale for over a year (or even more than a year). This is an 'average' as some may sell for a little more but most will sell for less and shipping is a real hazard with these fragile dolls.
The larger 30 - 48 inch dolls will usually sell for a little higher price but shipping will be high also.

You can look at the previously sold listings on eBay and get an idea of what people are paying for similar dolls. I did not see a 'sold' doll like yours but there is one listed for sale for $20 plus $20 shipping on eBay that you might want to place a watch to see if it sells.

Here is the link to previously sold dolls on eBay:

Only rare collectibles and antique dolls will sell for higher money.

You can see the prices that sellers are hoping to receive for similar dolls that seem to be in excellent condition and the sellers will just be very lucky if their dolls sell anytime soon.

These dolls are worth $10-15 in pristine condition. Yours is worth nothing.

Cute!! With the box, if she is under 29 inches, which she appears to be one of the small dolls, they sell for between 5 and 25 dollars each.

Yes. That is a huge range, but that is because there are so many variables.

The high end sales are for a doll that is pristine in the box with all original paperwork and packaging.

Values drop if there is no box, no paperwork, any smells, or flaws.

The doll market is glutted and that means high supply and low demand, which drives prices down. Thanks for sharing!
