I have seen her before and I believe she may be a J Misa doll. And if she is, she is missing her hat and her parasol and her box and hang tag.

If you are asking to sell her, you can start her at $25 just listing her as unmarked Victorian blond doll with coy face and take best offer.

Be aware, shipping her is going to be a royal pain. She would do best in a local pick up sale. She is very fragile and with the way the USPS lately even if she is packed like she is going off to battle, she may not survive the trip!

Truthfully - you may realize less than $15-$25 and it may take months to sell. You also have to be responsible for any broken items and insurance is costly so that means if the doll breaks and you have to refund all money you could lose all of the money plus even more.

I would say to list her on sites like Facebook Marketplace, letgo, offerup and start the price higher $75 with best offer considered and local pick up only - no shipping.
If no one makes an offer then you should lower the price.
List on all 3 or more sites.
Post several pictures.

This looks to be a massed produced doll, without markings and id , this doll and more range from $10 to in the $100's ASKING PRICE. Dolls are not bringing in much. Often getting a lot less than what you paid( $10 to $25).

They have quite a few on eBay and etsy at bid pricing and hardly in movement, here is a link to judge for yourself - www.etsy.com/search?q=porcelain%20dolls&ref=auto...

Considering the doll market has almost collapsed and people are no longer investing in these types of dolls it makes it really hard to sell one at all. If you don't find any name or marking on the back of the neck this makes it even hard to ID the doll. I would say this is a mass-produced doll and not a very collectable one at that because there is no marking on the doll at all.

Most people today are very lucky to get even $5 for dolls like this. You might get lucky and get a bit more. I would suggest to try and sell it locally at first and if this is not working for you it can be posted online and see if you can sell it there.
