Value of Porcelain Doll?

A porcelain doll in an old fashioned dress.I own this vintage doll. It is an antique china doll with red cheeks and blue eyes, 23 inches. I would like to know price. Unfortunately it has a broken one hand :( I listed it on eBay as I saw some similar but I'm not sure about price.

I would have your doll professionally appraised b/c it could be worth a lot of money. French and German dolls, especially bisque dolls, are the most valuable types of antique dolls.

Can you show the doll undressed--specifically the way the head attaches to the body?

What is the body stuffed with? The body looks much too new to be an antique, although the head still could be having been "modernized" onto a new body if the original fell apart if it was well loved.

Are there any markings on the head or neck or breastplate? Can you show the ears also?

Without seeing her breastplate and ears, to me everything about her says 1970s (maybe 80's) repro--but I want to be sure.


Most originals had leather boots on their feet, not painted, but it is possible that a parent or doll person painted the boots on after the leather ones were lost.

The reason it is important to see the fine details is a good repro doll sells in the ballpark of $10-20 and a true antique in the range of $100 and up. Sadly the broken hand will factor in to a devaluation also.

I will try to help with more info. Thanks.
