I have these dolls 44 in total, Leonardo and Knightsbridge. Any idea of their value?
Dolls have to be individually researched to find a value as each doll is different in many ways even if the brand name is the same.
You will need to do online research for each doll individually to see if you can locate an identical doll as only a sold price will provide 'current value' as a sold price displays what someone was willing to pay for that item.
Several things will determine the value of each doll:
Size - measurements
Style (Victorian - American Indian - Bride - etc)
Condition - new or used/preowned
Also: new in box - new/no box - COA/tags
No one can just give a ballpark value for your dolls but it can be said that the majority of Knightsbridge and Leonardo dolls that sell usually sell for less then $25-$35.
You may have larger dolls that may sell for a little more but shipping will be very expensive so be sure you check out shipping costs before listing dolls for sale.
You can search for your dolls online - eBay is a good first stop. You can narrow your search by checking some of the boxes on the left of the screen - size etc.
Here is a link to eBay on both brands:
Second link is for dolls that have sold over the past several months:
You can check for your dolls on Google to find other listings for sale.
Please keep in mind that dolls in general are very low priority on anybody's list and the market has been flooded for years. This just means that dolls are very slow sellers and many dolls are listed for sale for months/years and may never sell - even at very low prices.
You may be better off to try and find a consignment store that will display your dolls for sale. You will have to pay a percentage to the store but you would not have to do any shipping which could be the best part.
Cybergrannie is 100% spot on in her response. The only thing I can add is individual research is critical as there are a few ringers out there that may hold more value than the others, but time is money and it can take weeks to do this research because many sellers are flippers and have clue how to name them to sell so you may have to go through thousands of dolls to find yours. What I mean by this is you may have to look down to a granular level of 15 inch doll or blonde doll to find a match to yours. It can be a nightmare!
With 41 dolls, unless you don't care about the hours your will spend, you should research them all or think of easier alternatives.
An easier alternative is just come up with an amount you want to get for the whole bunch of them and offer them as a boxed lot through a Facebook local sale and let someone else who has time and money to play around sell them by the piece OR add them to their collection and use the rest for trade (some doll owners love this kind of deal.
OR if you can find a consignment store that will take them (sadly some don't because the market is glutted) I would put them on consign for 90 days and see what sells and then donate the rest.
Or try to sell what's left as a boxed lot on Facebook.
Dolls are very hard to sell. I got out of selling them a few summers ago--just too many and too hard to ship.

I have a Knightsbridge Collection limited edition Emily doll that I can not find any information online about. I can find info about others, but not the doll I have. She doesn't have feet.There is an umbrella that opens up her dress. She has never been played with and is in the box. I also have the certificate of authenticity!
Is she the 17 inch gal? This one?:
She is listed at 12.99 but has not sold. If she sells 12.99 will be her current market value.
There was a taller gal also, she is selling for more. The taller gal is 41 inches tall and sold for 69.00.
First - it may seem to some that your type of doll is unusual but the umbrella style doll has been made by numerous companies for several years.
As an example there are over 200 of this type presently listed on eBay - numerous brands and several by Knightsbridge.
A few umbrella dolls have sold (not Knightsbridge) over the past several months as you can see on this link. It is showing a higher number sold but at this date only 12 dolls sold were actually 'umbrella' dolls (the majority just have an umbrella with the doll).
That is a very small number sold and most of these were much less than $30 which just shows this style doll is no more in demand than any other style doll.
If you find a similar doll for sale on eBay, you can place a 'watch' on that listing to see if it sells. Sold 'identical' dolls are the only true current value and that is not always a good figure unless there are several sold within the same price range.
There are presently 2 Knightsbridge umbrella dolls listed for sale on eBay that you could watch to see if they sell.
Shipping dolls is a nightmare as it is estimated that a very large percentage are broken during shipping and especially at Christmas.
If you decide to sell her, I would suggest a local venue like Facebook Marketplace and list her as pick up only so no shipping would be involved.
You can also list her starting price at any figure and lower it if necessary to sell.
I have the Knightsbridge Heirloom twins, Robert and Rachael, no. 1781 boxed, with certificates, in top condition. I am interested to see how much they should sell for.
Are you in the UK? The dolls with this name in the US are in plaid outfits and have faces of older children, but it looks like your two (these exact children) may have been a UK exclusive. Not positive, still digging to confirm this.
If so, people are asking 80-100 pounds, but none have sold at that price.
People can ask any amount, but what people will pay is the value.
If they were mine, I would start at 75 pounds and take best offer.
Thanks for sharing! I am always fascinated when I see variations like this where the US and UK versions are so vastly different.
These dolls are not made by a famous doll maker but a company that mass produces dolls. The set of dolls might bring in around $25. Right now these dolls are not selling and most people are actually trying to give them away for around $1 to $5.
How much is my doll worth? It's in excellent condition.
She is very pretty! Is she under 18 inches? Most Knightsbridge Collection dolls under 18 inches sell for $10 and under plus postage (on eBay). The taller dolls can fetch under $20. This is for pristine still in the box dolls. If you don't have the box, the value can be at least half of that value.
Sadly most of them are sitting unsold for months and months and months because there is a glut.
Be sure to list her name in the post if you sell online as sometimes people are seeking to match the name of their child with the doll.
If you sell online and need to ship, she is going to need double boxed as she is very fragile.
I found this Knightsbridge Collection doll in my attic. She still has the tag, which says her name is Corrina.Beautiful doll with all original clothing and accessories. Any idea what she may be worth?
The number of dolls listed for sale/available far outnumber the demand in today's market.
As a general rule thrift stores do not want dolls as they usually take a long time to sell and the sold price is usually less than $15. They will take dolls but are more likely to give them to another charity.
If you research the Knightsbridge dolls you may find some listed at high prices but this is not realistic and many sellers have other reason for listing items like this at high prices (not all of them strictly legal).
Checking eBay's sold listings I found only one doll has sold in the US over the past several months and this doll sold for $9.99 plus shipping. It seems these dolls are more popular in the UK but still sold prices are low.
I would suggest you try to find someone that would like to have this lovely doll as any profit from selling this doll would not be worth the trouble of making a listing and waiting months/years for it to sell - which may never happen.
I have this Knightsbridge limited edition heirloom porcelain doll. It has /1000 and also no. 660 on back of it neck.I am just wondering where I could get information on it and its value please.
You do not give the measurements for your doll but she looks like more than 20 inches - and - occasionally - a taller size doll will sell for a little more than the regular size dolls. The taller dolls are produced in smaller numbers - 1,000 as opposed to the normal 5,000 dolls. But, of course, the reason they are produced in smaller numbers is because they sell a less amount of the taller dolls.
The problem with this is they are very difficult and very expensive to ship. All of these dolls break very easily and insurance is a real hassle to collect.
It is a good idea to check eBay listings because it gives you a general idea as to how many dolls are listed at any given time. The asking price has very little to do with true value but you can always place a watch on a doll to see if it sells.
It is almost impossible to find a doll where a name is unknown because otherwise she is just a "Knighsbridge" doll.
You can check "images" on Google to see what you are up against when trying to locate a doll where a name is unknown.
I would suggest you try selling your doll on a local site such as Craigslist or any of the other sale sites that are avilable in your area.
You can always ask more for your doll and lower the price if no one shows an interest.
You may not sell your doll for a big price but you will not have to ship and that is a very big thing.
My grandmother gave me her Indian doll. It's a female, 6 feet tall. The tag says Knightsbridge collection. It's wearing leather clothes and beads.It has glass eyes, a porcelain head, and fake hair. What is it's value?
EBay has Knightsbridge Indian doll prices $10-$30. Keep in mind that just because a doll may be fancy, old, inherited, etc., it most probably has little value as most are mass produced in the thousands. A doll's condition is extremely important in considering value-the best doll prices are paid for dolls literally never removed from their boxes. You can find prices for some dolls on EBay and try online for further research.
Found this in my grandma's basement. It was given to me as a gift when I was 4. So it's at least 20 years old. But I can not find anything online about this doll. There is no certificate of authenticity and nothing printed on her neck or back or feet.Any one know anything about her? The box was basically destroyed, but she's in pretty good condition besides a small chip in the foot and missing one of her eye lashes.
I have two Knightsbridge dolls, a brother and sister. They are dressed in red velvet with white dots. She is wearing a white straw hat, he has a velvet cap that is red with white dots.Both have blonde hair, brown eyes, and bare foot. Can you tell me anything about them? I got them at a sale cheap.
The reason you got them so cheaply is because they are mass-produced dolls that go for $10 to $25 max
