Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Can you please upload a clear close-up of the neck markings? Small variations are very helpful to me in identification.

Expert:  AppraiserJM replied 1 year ago.

Thank you.

Unfortunately, this appears to be a contemporary, or late 20th century, reproduction doll. These head molds are sold through sites like New York Doll Products, and come complete with the Tete Jumeau markings on the back. These are used by contemporary professional and amateur doll makers to create their own examples.

These reproduction dolls are valued at no more than $50.00, unless they were done by an exceptionally well-known reproduction artist. Unfortunately, I can't find a known reproduction artist using the mark "Anna."

I'm sorry for any disappointment.

Sincerely,

Jennifer

Just my luck... I wondered why she was in such good shape..
Ok well worth my 30.00 bucks .. to find out its not worth anything., thanks for your time
Expert:  AppraiserJM replied 1 year ago.

So sorry! Well she IS worth $30, and a bit more than that. We've had people spend tens of thousands too much, at least you got a good deal (although not a windfall). You should reasonably be able to get that money back by reselling her. She's a pretty doll.

i think she is beautifull and will keep her.. i do have one more item.. will it cost me another 30.00
Expert:  AppraiserJM replied 1 year ago.

I can't answer you that, you'd have to ask Customer Service. I have absolutely no idea how the billing works, I'm an independent contractor.
