Value of Porcelain Dolls?

A collection of porcelain dolls.Hello! I am looking for some advice on how much I should be listing my dolls for to sell online. It is a bit hard to tell with such a large difference in prices online, so thank you for any information.


They have all been stored in a glass display cabinet and are in perfect condition with no chips or scratches, although I do not have the original packaging.

Most of them are from Homeart, one from Bellefin, one from the Florence Collection, and the last one is unknown (her name is Kathleen, though I remember that).

Thanks again for any help with how much I should list them for, and maybe which platform would be best (Facebook, eBay etc).

Dolls with their original accessories and packaging are often more desirable than those without. One excellent way to sell dolls quickly is eBay. Craigslist will also attract consumers looking for dolls.


The price of Florence Collection Limited Edition Handmade 'Brielle' Porcelain Bisque Doll NIB is about $ 108
This doll has the same label as your doll but has a box. certificate of authenticity and 2003 summer collection catalog where the doll is featured, #37 of a limited hand made edition of 240 porcelain bisque dolls, size 45 cm.
Vintage 1990s Homeart Bisque porcelain doll WYNONA AU $ 15.40
Vintage 1990s, Homeart, Fine Bisque Porcelain Doll INGRID AU $ 36.16

Vintage rare Porcelain Doll 90s limited edition Bellefin Dolls approximately 56 cm tall was sold for C $ 115 (about US $ 90)

Be as specific as you can when describing your dolls. Information about size and condition are crucial in attracting buyers. Clear, detailed pictures and unambiguous descriptions will give buyers confidence in your listings.
Be prepared to accept offers you can live with. Counteroffer if you need to. Don't expect full, retail value from your sale. Collectors expect discounts when they are buying from non-professionals, and dealers need to make their own investments to find customers at full price.
Once you've agreed on a price, complete the deal by taking payment and transferring possession of the items to the buyer. If you are selling online, pack your items carefully so they arrive in good condition. Porcelain dolls should have their porcelain parts carefully padded and be placed in a large box with enough packing to ensure there is no movement of fragile parts inside the box.

These are all mass-produced dolls that decreased drastically in value. The most you could get is $25 for a doll that was never taken out of the box.

I would sell as a lot, and give a 10% discount if the person buys the whole thing.

Because of the hundreds of dolls like these, you may only bring in $10 to $25 each. You could advertise that they have been protected and in great condition along with good staging.


You could also sell your dolls in a Lot price, with incentive like a percent off if buying the group. Your dolls look great, find a way to stand out from the rest.
