  1. Wow! And that's only PART of your collection? Terrific! What an interesting topic for collecting. :)

    I tagged you at my blog for 8 random things. Play along if you'd like. :)

  2. i have a porcelain {blue} cat head rag doll, it has like sword marks painted on left ear and scratch or engraving on right ear. i named her miss kitty can you please tell me more about her if possible? thank you

    ReplyDelete
  3. I have a similar doll with a cat head done in porcelain blue. Mine is about 11.5 inches tall, and is from Thailand. I got her around 1990. I can't guess at value, but similar dolls seem to have doubled their initial $15.00 or so price, to between $30.00 or 40.00. I haven't seen many, actually, and am intrested to hear of yours. They are unusual. Bette Ball made a cat headed doll in bisque with glass eyes for Goeble in the late 80s, too. I also have some other Thai dolls with blue and white china heads and traditional headdresses. The Haunted Doll Museum had one on its site called Suki. You have a very unusual kitty doll that serves as a cross-over collectible. Enjoy it!

  4. Hey I have an original Ella Cinders doll and aren't sure what it is worth. Any ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Hi, Emily; thanks for the comment. On eBay, if she is in good shape, she could go for anything. In older books, I've seen values of $400 for near mint dolls, but modern doll prices have dropped. A good book is Denise van Patten's price guide, put out in about 2009, or books on celebrity dolls. Denise as a newsletter at about.com under Doll Collecting with price guides, too. Good Luck.

  6. Hi, I have this doll

    http://www.part.lt/img/c95ac4efd6cfe91420e1ef80bd71ac08244.jpg

    and aren't sure what it is worth. Any ideas?

  7. Hello, Tomas. Thanks for your comment; which doll specifically? The Golden Girl? I haven't seen these in too many price guides. MIB, I'm guessing she is worth about $35.00. I'm going on prices for comparable dolls from the same era. Try a site called Ghost of the Doll for more ideas. If it is another; let me know. I'll look at your URL, too. Just keep in mind I'm not an appraiser ! :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Thank You for the help. I found quite similar doll for $95. But my doll have scary look and lively eyes... (Full size doll photo) -->
    http://www.part.lt/img/86a7eb30702a24883db6ea74c168a2c8807.JPG

    I'll try my luck on that site, and maybe I'll find out who and when created that doll. :)

  9. You are welcome. Do you ahve a name for this website? I'm having trouble cutting and pasting in the url. Good luck on your search. I will try to get to the site to see it. Could you have one of the JEM dolls?
