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.
I have the Lolita porcelain doll, boxed with a certificate of authenticity. I have had it since my childhood in the early 90s. How much is it worth?
Unfortunately, these dolls are mass produced and don't bring a high resale value. Many people sell these online and can only ask $10 to $25 for the doll.
It is worth $25 at most. Mass-produced dolls become less valuable with time.
There are so many pretty dolls similar to yours that have been saved over many years and one would hope they would be valuable. Sadly, most of these are very difficult to sell even at very low prices.
others here have provided insight into possible price.
here is a sad primer on the economics of dolls as commodities: the fact is, a lot of these so-called 'collector' dolls do not have a lot of value. The market is saturated with them and the demand is just not there. This professional doll site has this to say about it: "Modern porcelain collector dolls sold from about the 1980s to present, were meant to appeal to adult doll collectors, not children. The theory was; buy it, keep it in the box or debox, but keep it unplayed with, after some time passes, you'll be able to sell it for more money than your original purchase and make a profit.
I have had this porcelain doll for as long as I can remember. According to her certificate she is a limited edition Melissa doll from the Knightsbridge Collection. I was wondering her worth.
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 and very often include the rather misleading term limited edition in their names and may also have an essentially worthless certificate of authenticity. 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. This site is a good place to start:
This is a mass-produced doll. There were 5000 in this lot alone. It is probably worth less than you paid for it.
I searched E-Bay for your doll it is not listed. You can go on E-Bay and list the doll and they will e-mail you if one comes available.
