Hi my name is Glenda,Thank you for choosing us for your Appraisal needs.
The ABC Worldwide in Thailand Porcelain Doll has an estimated value on the secondary retail market for an of average of $100.00-125.00, depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, you might want to check your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for. As antiques and collectibles are subject in selling price to different areas across the country..( Larger Metropolitan Areas bring higher prices then Smaller Cities. ).
So be sure to check your local area. This will give you an idea of what it goes for in your area, then you can decide to sell locally or at one of the online markets.

How did you research the estimated value? Did you find one like it? Did you research the ABC Worldwide comapny or see this or one that looks somewhat like this somewhere or is it truley one of a kind? approximately how old is this doll? Thanks for your help
I found the information in our paid subscription data bases that compile information , the company that produced the dolls is ABC Worldwide Gifts out of Covina California & it is handcrafted in Thailand. ABC WW Gifts is a non-profit outreach ministry of the American Baptist Chrurches of the Pacific Southwest, helping to help others HELP themselves. The company is 24 years old and no longer active your Doll was more then likely produced in the later part of 1980's. If you click the link below you can see one of these dolls that is being sold on Ebay.
this is MY ebay listing, I just took a guess at what it may be worth. I just wanted to know if I had undervalued it and wanted to know more about it. I could find no other info on it and thought I would come to the "experts" to see if there was more info that I just didn't have access to.
Hello, I see, I also found where these were listed in my paid subscription data bases, there were listing on the dolls from this company. It seems they made several of this type. This organization helped people become independent and self sufficient. I also called a dealer who deals in Dolls, she does Doll shows and Doll Fairs, she said she has sold these before and that the price you have is a good price for them. She said they were more popular and seem more often in the 80's and early 90's.
