Value of Porcelain Peter Pan Doll?

Hi, I have a 13 inch Peter Pan hand-painted porcelain Franklin Heirloom doll that I am looking to possibly sell and was wondering what it might be worth?

Ebay has several porcelain figurines listed for $10 to $30, but it doesn't look like people are buying them.

Companies will call things like this "collectible," but then they make hundreds of them, which means the value isn't that good.

I am curious about this....is the doll itself marked as Franklin Mint?

I have no memory of FM making a Peter Pan doll like this.

Are you in the US?

Does it have a year on the paper tag?

Hopefully with some more info and digging I can offer more info.

Thanks!

Hi, I do not see a year on the tag or Franklin Mint marked on the doll itself. The back of the tag states it was crafted in Malaysia for Franklyn Heirloom Dolls, a Franklin Mint Company. Franklin Center, Pennsylvania, 19091

I found a set of 3 Franklin Heirloom Peter Pan dolls that they were selling as a set for $19. This was a bid on the dolls and it has ended. I am not sure if they were actually sold or the bid was just canceled. it says that 11 people put a bid on this doll. www.ebth.com/.../9763470-franklin-heirloom-bisque...

That is the link. Currently, dolls are not selling for much at all. This was a lot of 3 and it was only going for $19. The estimated value of your doll would be $5-10.

Still curious, as I have not seen anything with Franklin spelled other than Franklin. They did use plants in Malaysia so that is at least a good sign.

The dolls that another posters shared look nothing like your doll, although the tag is similar, it is marked Franklin with the regular spelling, so I would not use those as a value market for yours.

You may want to call the Franklin Mint Museum:

The Franklin Mint Museum, U.S. Route 1 Franklin Center PA 19091
(610) 459-6168 and see what you have (meaning if it is an original Franklin Mint piece, or an homage piece or something else. I don't want to assume it is a "fake" without a whole lot more information. However, it if it deemed to be a fake, legally (my understanding) is you should not be selling it and it should be destroyed.

I am hoping I am totally off here and it is a special product that I am just not aware of!

Post back what you learn!

I believe you may have one of the more rare figurines but because the name is Peter Pan and the movie/series is named Peter Pan your figurine will be very difficult to locate. If you look for Peter Pan thousands appear because every named character in the show will appear. You can try narrowing it down but very difficult.
If it was Disney you may be able to find a year and a series but Franklin Heirloom does not seem to have named series at least I could not locate a full series.
I did find one figurine like yours but it may have been listed a while because the seller reduced the price from $400 to $150 but both figures may be too high.
poshmark.com/.../Peter-Pan-figurine-5fc6534bbcbb521660b3ac00

I can only suggest that if you wish to sell, I would list it on sites like Facebook Marketplace, IOffer, OfferUp, LetGo and any other sites you're familiar with. Start your price high ($150) with best offer considered and see how it goes.
Several good pictures and a good description are the only way to sell an item. Shipping added as this one is fragile and will have to be double boxed.
If no offers after several weeks you can lower the price and wait again.
You can put Franklin Heirloom Franklin Mint 12" Porcelain Peter Pan figurine doll
Good luck with your sale

The information you provided and PGHgirl's remarks has really raised my curiosity about this item as it appears from the picture of your tag the Franklin Heirloom logo is correct.
Since there was no picture given of the back of the tag, I felt the misspelling of the name could be your mistake or the tags had an error because I believe this is a legitimate Franklin Heirloom/Franklin Mint figurine.
Check the logo and the same style tag on these listings:
www.etsy.com/.../franklin-heirloom-collectible-doll...
www.etsy.com/.../vintage-franklin-heirloom-dutch-boy...

There is a lot of information about Franklin Heirloom and Franklin Mint online but in the end most of the information amounts to nothing that seems useful.
The Franklin Mint Company was sold to Retail Ecommerce Ventures (REV) in July 2020, a holding company.

Here is the present Franklin Mint website:
franklinmint.com/
They do not show a contact number but you can click on Work with Franklin and there is an email address and telephone number.

The FRANKLIN HEIRLOOM DOLL COLLECTORS SOCIETY closed in 1997 and has no contact information.

Franklin Mint Museum is no longer open - closed in 2004.
2004: Closed.
Status: Gone

There are many different addresses given for contact but I do not believe any of them have anyone to answer questions.

The Franklin Mint
U.S. Route 1
Franklin Center, Pennsylvania 19091
U.S.A.
Telephone: (610) 459-6000

There are a few Franklin Mint Facebook groups. Maybe they can help:

Franklin Mint porcelain dolls

Is one of them.

I am just so puzzled by him. I have been through all of the ads I have in my archives (which is not complete, but has a lot) and nothing was found.

Franklin Mint items are expensive to buy and cheap to buy secondhand. I dont think you could get more than $15 for it.
