Value of a Classic Treasures Porcelain Doll

Category Dolls
To determine the current value of a Classic Treasures porcelain doll, Ebay is often a good place. Many of these dolls were mass produced and unless they are older and in demand, are not worth much.

Awww! How cute!!

I found your set being listed as an active auction on eBay as a best offer starting at 9.99 plus shipping:

www.ebay.com/.../132473115290

You may want to watch it and see if it sells and that will be today's current market value.

You will see the shipping is really high. Be sure if you sell yours to double box and pack carefully then weigh and measure the box before listing. These dolls are very fragile and a single box you risk them getting to the buyer in a million pieces!

This brother and sister set look like they are all dressed up in their Easter outfits.

Such a shame to see such adorable dolls valued so low.
I believe the companies mass produced so many dolls that we will not see an increase in value even in the next 10 - 20 years.
Not only are so many dolls available there is just not a good market for them. In the past every young girl wanted dolls - lots of dolls - but now they are into electronics/cell phones/music and very, very few are wanting a doll even at 3-4 years old.
Dolls are a thing of the past...

You can check eBay sold listings for same/similar dolls and see the dismal expectation of what the current value may be.
You may notice some selling for under $30 with free shipping and since shipping will be $9-$30 (depending on the size/location) (also eBay & PayPal fees) there is not much profit there (some even sell at a loss to sellers).

I also noticed one cute doll sold for $.99 plus small shipping - what a waste of time for that seller.
Also, shipping is a hazard for sellers because so many are damaged and the seller has to refund the buyer all the money they payed so the seller could be out everything - doll, money paid by buyer, shipping cost the seller had to pay and cannot get back, eBay fees - can be a costly lesson. USPS insurance is costly and even Priority Mail insurance is debatable as the post office can deny a claim if they say doll was not packaged properly.
Do not believe anything a seller states in their listings about no refunds, not responsible for damage and all that junk because eBay says they are responsible and will refund the buyer and take the money from your PayPal account or even send to collection if no money in PayPal or bank.

Some of the dolls that are listed as sold could have been listed for months - even years - but we have no way to know the time listed.

Maybe you could place several dolls together and list them on local venues as 'pick up only' so there is no shipping involved.
Here is a listing to review from several years ago but gives you an idea of how to list a group.

Another one of your brand dolls.

I have a porcelain doll it has the certificate of authentication and I was wondering about how much it is worth? If anyone could give me a rough estimate it would be extremely helpful.

These "special edition" dolls are mass-produced and decrease in value. Even if they have a certificate and were never taken out of the box, they are worth $25 or less.

It is sad to see such lovely dolls decrease in value almost to the point of 'worthless'. This does not mean that dolls like this cannot be sold but the value is so very low and the market is flooded with so many dolls that almost any type doll may take a very long time to sell or may never sell - at any price.

Your doll is a holiday doll which makes it even more difficult to sell as the time span for holiday dolls is very short - maybe 2-3 months out of the year and generally go unnoticed the rest of the year.

I believe it would be difficult for you to sell your doll for even $15-$25.
Only sold dolls can give you any idea of what someone will pay for an item but you can check out these links to see what this brand of doll is selling for.
Most likely (especially at this time of year) you will not find an identical doll but the sold prices may help you see what people are presently paying for this brand.

It would be nice if you had someone to gift this doll since the value is low it would seem nice to give it to someone to cherish (when value does not matter).

The sweet Classic Treasures dolls. They are adorable, but sadly, at the moment their value is below $10, with many of them sitting unsold on eBay for months and months and months. I found a dark haired version of this gal on eBay where an ambitious seller is asking $29.95, but I have no hope it will sell for any where near that.

She may fetch a little more closer to Christmas since she is a holiday themed gal.

Truly her true value is not in money, but if you can find a child who would love her, that would be the best price for her--a little love.

I so wish I had better news for you on your lovely. If you can hold on to her for 15-20 years, she may increase in value since people right now are trashing these dolls left and right. In the future, maybe, someone will miss her and want to get her back.

Thanks for sharing!
