Hi Mary,My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.The current value of the doll in the condition you are describing is very close to nil. You are wise to have it restored, as the resulting value could be in the $300 to $500 range.There are no experienced doll hospitals in Phoenix, but there is one with a great reputation in Elmira, New York. Here is their web site: http://www.taggertydollclinic.com/ Wishing you all the best of luck!I hope this answer has been helpful to you, Mary.If you have any further questions or problems concerning this answer, please let me know.If you would like to work with me on further questions you might have, it would be a pleasure to work with you again.
