Value of a J. Misa Porcelain Doll?


My grandmother wants me to sell this doll that her sister gave her years ago. I can't find any information about this doll anywhere. I've tried eBay, etc. it says it is a J. Misa porcelain doll on her tag on her arm.

They range from $20 to $30 today on eBay.

There are J. Misa dolls listed on eBay and sometimes on Etsy or Amazon but the value is still low. Usually less than $25 and may take a very long time to sell.

In the past the taller dolls - over 18" - sold more often and usually for more money but since the USPS rates (DIM) changed in June the shipping cost will make these dolls almost unsalable.

Usually Indian, Victorian, and celebrity dolls sell faster but the market is flooded with all brands/types of dolls and the value remains very low.
Condition matters but age and new or used make very little difference in value or how quickly they sell.

You can continue to check the online sites for this particular doll but asking prices mean very little as only sold prices will show what someone is welling to pay. eBay is the only site that has a link to sold items.

You can check this site for your doll as the current prices are shown when you click on the doll.

Is she the sitting gal? If I remember right, there was a boy and girl who were both sitting. They did not come together, but seem to get sold together sometimes. If you had both, I have seen them sell for $10-16 dollars for the pair.

I have seen the singles (just girl or just boy) sell $8-$10.

She is adorable!

PS. here is a little trick I just learned--do the clothes come off? If you can get them off and you have other dolls around your house--sometimes the outfits are worth much more than the dolls...especially if they fit American Girl dolls or other other 18 inch dolls. Or if they fit Barbie (11 1/2 inch dolls) or any standard doll size.

Word of Warning...You CANNOT advertise them as American Girl OR BARBIE or other name brand clothes...but you can say in the text of the ad that they fit (give the doll size--like 18 inch or 11 1/2 inc) dolls LIKE....

Some of the outfits alone--with shoes, can fetch $20-25.
