Value of a Seymour Mann Connoisseur Collection Doll?

I have a Seymour Mann Connoisseur Collection doll. It's a 16" porcelain bridal doll in the box with its authentification paperwork. The arms and legs are wrapped. The certificate of authenticity says it's #209/2500. Her name is Bride Jessica.

I have spent some time trying to find Jessica to get a possible value for the doll, but with no luck thus far. I am hoping that someone might help to direct me to a site that will hopefully help with some questions.

Thank you for any suggestions anyone might have.

Seymour Mann is a company that produces each doll they make in mass-quantity. Normally they make around 5000 dolls of each model to sell worldwide. Therefore, when a person goes to sell the dolls again there are too many of them on the market. This lowers the price of the doll. Many of these dolls are sell for just $5 each on eBay and then people are not selling them. You will be lucky if you can make $5 to $25 for each doll you have to sell.

I am not surprised you can't find an exact match to your lovely gal. The reason is most of the sellers have no clue what they have and they list it with titles that are not helpful. Like Seymour Mann Doll or Connoisseur doll or 16 inch bride doll.

It could take weeks to find an exact match because you would have to sort through every way she could be listed.

Plus, there are several brides this brand made named Jessica (do not match faces).

I can tell you generally, if you are trying to sell her, that the bride dolls sell best in June and October and fetch an average of $10-30 if they sell.

That she is a brunette may get her in to the $20-30 range since most of the dolls are blond and supply is so high and demand so low that these sit much longer than the dark haired/red haired gals.

There is a glut of all dolls on the market now and most will sit for months before selling--across the board...no matter what type of doll it is.

If she was mine, I would start high and take best offer. If I had the time, I would wait and start the listing in April or May for the June rush, then pull her until August or September for the October rush.

Post back how your sale goes!

This is a mass-produced doll worth $25 and probably less.
