Value of an Ashley Belle Doll?

I came across an Ashley Belle porcelain doll while cleaning out a recently purchased storage building. I never knew these things had value until now. I've looked and scoured through eBay and other sites and am unable to find this particular Ashley Belle doll. How do I determine the value if any of this doll?

Ashley Belle dolls are mass-produced and decrease in value. They go for $25 and less

Nice find in a storage locker but unfortunately she does not have a lot of money value in today's market, especially if she is out of the box.

In the box, the average Victorian gal, like yours is sitting unsold on ebay for as low as 99 cents.

I am not surprised you can't find the exact doll out there...there were literally millions of these gals made from the 1980's through the early 2000s.

They were all just a tad different--with hair, eye and dress colors. They were sold to be collectibles and everyone was told that in 20-30 years their investment in these lovelies would be a retirement nest egg. Instead most people got stuck with pretty dust catchers.

If you do the flea markets, you can try her at $10-15 and see if you can get a best offer. It is better to sell in a venue where you don't have to ship since these gals are fragile and the boxes big enough to ship them in could cost a fortune if you ship cross country with the new USPS dimensional mailing fiasco.

Since you do lockers, be on the look out for the tall bride dolls, dolls with really unusual faces and expressions (except clowns--most of those have no value), and unexpected dolls....like old people dolls.

Sometimes the UGLIER or ODDER the doll, the more value it has. Also, if you find truly OLD dolls with damage, don't throw those out. French and German dolls from the 1800s can fetch huge money even when badly damaged or even have just the head.

An Ashley Belle doll will sell for a little more than a mass produced doll. If you check on eBay you will see where people are asking $15 to $25 for these dolls. Mass produced dolls normally sell for around $5 to $15.
