Value of a Paradise Porcelain Doll

This doll is like new, it has never been used for play, only as a display.

AWW!! She is cute. A tall toddler?

Sadly this is just a bad market for dolls and most like her are sitting unsold at prices as low as a few dollars.

Part of the problem with dolls are there are a glut of them on the market and now with the new (if you are in the US) DIM shipping, the cost to ship is often more than the value of the doll.

If you want to try her in a local market you could always start as high as $25 an take best offer.

Post back how it goes! Blessings!

These are mass-produced dolls. They rarely go higher than $25

She looks like she is between 22 - 30 inches and these dolls are a nightmare to ship. It almost takes a professional shipper to know how to pack them well enough to ship safely.

So many people seem to be under the impression that Paradise Galleries only has low value dolls and this is not the case. Some of the large dolls may still be of value but may take a long time to sell. eBay is not a good venue to sell a doll like this.

If sold on line it should be posted on a site like Etsy or Ruby Lane but I would recommend to list it on some sites like Facebook Groups or Facebook Marketplace as well as LetGo, OfferUp and any others that have local pick up only so there would be no shipping involved.

You can check out the size doll you have on eBay and get some idea as to the best way to list a doll that will maybe sell.
Numerous pictures of your doll and tag as well as a good description will help an item sell faster.

Here is a link to eBay 24 inch dolls. You will notice that prices are all over the place and most will not sell for those prices but occasionally one will.
You can be brave and list your doll for a higher amount or lower the price and maybe sell her quickly. You do have to consider that your doll is not a 'special' doll but what one would consider a "girl next door" type.

Here is what is a typical price that most people will pay for these dolls.
This link is to sold listings from the past several months. Most prices paid are under $30 plus shipping. This actually means someone may be willing to pay $50 if there is no charge for shipping.

Paradise Galleries sells dolls from their web site and some of these dolls are very expensive. Here is a link just in case someone thinks all of their dolls are low value. They have to be selling or they would be out of business and I do not see that happening.
The advantage is these are new just produced dolls and sold from the 'factory'.
