These dolls are mass-produced and generally not worth too much, although they are pretty.
We have inherited some dolls (picture of some of them), and we wonder about the value of these dolls. They are original and we got them from an uncle in the USA.
Used ones are asking in the $30 range on eBay.
Some of Show Stopper brand jesters are selling (SOLD prices, not asking) in the $20 range on eBay, although I am not finding an exact match to your two.
You could always do a 7 day auction starting at 19.99 and see if they go up in price.
The gal in the pink dress seems to be a less popular style--just to clarify--if she is not a mermaid. She isn't is she...I just want to make sure of that, because the brand's mermaids still sell in the in the $40-50 range.
Their Victorian gals sell between $10-18. You would fetch on the high end with the original boxes, on the lower end out of the box and if there are any signs of shelf wear, fading, etc.
Thanks for sharing!
All of these suggestions and estimates of value are for listings in the USA. If you are in another country you will have to do research to find the value of any dolls.
Show Stoppers usually makes thousands of each style doll and has been producing lower value dolls for many years.
The market is flooded with all styles, sizes, brands of dolls and none are selling very quickly and a very high percentage sell for under $20.
It does appear the mermaid may be the only doll that may be valued at over $50 but your photos do not show a mermaid.
This type doll is known by several names; jester, Harlequin, Pierrot so when searching for your dolls you should search under all of those names.
The other problem is that many people just show them as a 'doll' because they do not know the style name.
I did not find these dolls listed anywhere but on eBay.
You will find many listings with asking prices from low to high but only a sold listing will give you any true current value and I did see dolls sold for $3-$5 plus shipping.
I think that Pghgirl has a good idea about listing them for $19.95 or even higher (plus shipping) to see what type of response you receive.
You can always go in and revise the price if no one shows an interest.
You will have to research any doll with the brand name, doll name if known, size of doll (inches tall), and anything else that describes her.
eBay has a place to check for sold listings in the left hand column.
I am not sure where you live so it will make it hard to give you a price in your region. However, there are a few of these listed on eBay and they are for the US.
