Your jointed composition head Madame Alexander doll in black evening gown with blonde hair and green eyes dates to the mid 20th century or circa 1950 and has a value of $75 - $150 on today's market depending on size. The doll market is a bot flat bow compared to a few decades ago. You can, however, ask any price you please on an item you own, they key factor is finding a buyer at your asking price. Bear in mind that an ‘asking price’ is one that has not been sold yet and a true sale value is based on actual past documented sale records.
