How tall is your doll?
Do her eyes open and close?
My apologies for the delay, Stacie. Your reply came while I was on vacation.
Yes, your doll is by Schoenau and Hoffmeister. The mark indicates that it was made prior to 1930.
A doll with a detached hand cannot be considered to be in excellent condition for the purpose of valuation.
In this condition, the current retail (replacement or insurance) value of your doll is approximately $100. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount or $40, depending on location and actual condition.
I can recommend a good doll hospital: Taggerty Doll Clinic of Elmira, New York. www.taggertydollclinic.com
If they can successfully repair your doll, its retail value would then be approximately $300.
I hope this answer has been helpful to you, Stacie.
