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.

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.
Thank you.

The reason you got them so cheaply is because they are mass-produced dolls that go for $10 to $25 max

I was hoping to know about the dolls, the names of them and when they were made.

There is no way to find out the information you are looking for other than to do research on eBay, Etsy, Google as these dolls are all mass produced and there are several hundred Knightsbridge dolls listed on different sites everyday.

Ad

Some styles are gone on any given day but others appear so it would be a continuous search. You may get lucky and find dolls like yours but if they do not have the original paper tags that came with the dolls they will probably not know anymore than you.

These companies made thousands of each style doll and that is the reason there is no information pertaining to just one of their dolls.

You may be able to post your question on this doll forum site and sometimes these doll people may recognize a doll so why not try that. You will need a couple of pictures and pictures of any markings on their back, neck, head to help them identify your dolls. You should also give measurements.

This brand of dolls was quite popular in the 1980s. If I remember correctly they were made in England.

Ad

This site has a bit of history on the 1980s doll market:
dollreference.com/porcelain_collector_dolls.html

If you are asking for resale value, the brand's dolls are all over the place on eBay with few if any selling over $30, they average in the $15 range.

That said, I see none of your exact pair listed or sold, so until you can find an exact pair on eBay sold you will not have the market value for today.

Market value will change based on supply and demand and generally there is a huge supply of dolls, which sadly keeps the values down.

Add to that, if you sell them online, your profits will be much less than the value as you have to pay all of the fees and that eats a chunk of your money.

Let me know when you find an exact SOLD pair (I will keep looking also) then you will know their value. Never use ACTIVE auctions as people can ask the world, but sold tells you exactly what someone is willing to pay!

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?

Answers

March 13, 20180 found this helpful

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. Even at these prices they are hard to sell and most listings are cancelled because of this.

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.

  • Knightsbridge Dolls have been over produced for many years and although the dolls are pretty they are very low in value.
  • These (and many similar brands) have been made in all sizes, all cultures and sold in many different stores such as Target, K-Mart, Sears, JCP, etc.
  • There could be over 200,000 similar dolls for sale on eBay and Etsy (the main doll selling sites) at any given time which makes it a buyers market and low sold prices for sellers.
  • Sometimes it is easier to accept this fact if you see some dolls listed. Here is a link to some Knightsbridge dolls on eBay and the second link is how many have sold over the past several months. You will not find a Lolita in the group but I do not believe she would sell any better.
  • www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_odkw=Lolita+Knightsbridge...
  • www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&...
  • If you are wanting to sell your dolls you may have better luck listing them on your local Craigslist as a potential buyer could see the dolls and there would not be any expensive shipping involved.
  • You could start your prices at $45-65 and reduce the price if no one seems interested.
  • Craigslist is very easy to use but be sure to use caution when letting anyone visit your home. It is usually best to arrange a meeting at a public spot just to be safe.

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. Dolls were easily found in department stores, grocery store toy aisles, card shops, toy stores and on TV from QVC etc. The quantities sold of each collector doll could be large, it's the sheer quantity of all available porcelain collector dolls today, that is determining the current value, as they flood the market place, online and elsewhere..... Sad to say, but these dolls are now available in such large quantities they have little to no value today." dollreference.com/porcelain_collector_dolls.html

I am trying to find out what this doll is worth. The serial number is JWD196. Her name is Charlotte and is she is a part of the Knightsbridge collection.

Answers

The Knightsbridge company mass produced all of their dolls which means they will always be low value dolls.

  • Knightsbridge collection dolls listed on eBay are listed for $2.99 - $35-40 and many will never sell.
  • These are nice dolls but just too many were made and they have a very, very low resale value.
  • Dolls are also difficult to pack and costly to ship which just makes them less attractive to a buyer.
  • If you are interested in selling your doll, I would suggest you list her on your local Craigslist and start your price as high as you like and just lower it is no one shows an interest.
  • Here are examples of similar dolls listed on eBay.

These dolls are mass-produced and will get you $25 at most.

While these dolls don't have a lot of value, they are no longer being made. Many are "repurposed" as monster dolls or other novelties. Local haunted houses like to use them as props. They can cost as little as a dollar in thrift stores, but a doll author and long time collector, the dolls are worth keeping as part of doll history. Barbie, most antiques, Sasha, Madame Alexander, and other highly collectible and valuable dolls were also mass produced. The first versions, so called "Waldas" now have their own following and a YouTube video. When sold, they bring a little more in antique stores and on Amazon.com. They often have lovely outfits and are still liked as decor items. Quality varies.

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.

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.
