Porcelain Collector dolls
were sold beginning in the 1970s to present, they were meant to appeal to adult doll collectors, not children. The theory was buy it, keep it in the box unplayed with. After some time passes, you’ll be able to sell the doll for more than your original purchase and make a profit.
Collectors didn’t realize that a bazillion dolls were sold, that sheer quantity of dolls, now in the market place, is determining the value of those collector dolls today.
Some porcelain dolls can be identified by a marking on the back of the neck, a design number or a tag sewn to the dolls cloth body, inside clothing if original or doll and clothing may be entirely unmarked. The clothing alone, maybe worth more than the actual porcelain doll itself.
All modern collector dolls came with a COA = Certificate Of Authenticity with the dolls name, usually stating their fine bisque quality, the LE – Limited Edition number of dolls made (in the thousands) and a design number of the doll.
How much is my vintage porcelain doll worth?
That is a question asked over and over again by porcelain doll owners. You can do your own research to find a value, go to eBay> porcelain doll> sold values>. Look for sold values of dolls similar to yours. Sad to say these dolls are now available in such large quantities, they have little to no value.
So save your time and effort, put these dolls in a garage sale, give to someone who might appreciate the doll, a give to a thrift store and take a small tax write off, remove the clothing and sell separately etc., be happy to get something, everything old is not necessarily a treasure.
