Value of a Knightsbridge Collection Porcelain Doll

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. 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.

  • 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
