Customer Question

I have a 1930's french boudoir doll with a necklace that is stamped Raynal. Handpainted face and lovely pale boue velvet dress and coat and slouch hat. Where can I determine its value and where can I try to sell it?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: Should I try to wash the clothing, steam clean, or leave it as is?

Your 1920-30's Raynal French doll has a current value of $700 to $800 retail.

You should leave the doll in the current condition without cleaning the clothing.
Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Ioffer.com, OfferUp.com, Ebay and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
