Scarlett O'Hara dolls in this large size were popular after 1965. The Franklin Mint made them along with Madame Alexander, Mattel and other doll makers. They are very hard to find in price guides but the general doll value for these in pristine condition in 525.00-650.00. So your find on the internet in the original box is "spot on" with the price guides.
If you do not have the original box but everything is in original and mint condition, I would estimate that this would have a value in the range of 450.00-500.00 as the doll is really the significant collector item. Boxes do enhance the value but a beautiful doll in pristine condition will retain its value without the original packing and paper work.
(note: today values have significantly been reduced due to the great accessiblity of antiques and dolls online. Whether your doll can actually fetch this value is going to be dependant on venue.. local and specialty venues are going to do better today then general online sales.)
Best wishes, Dori

I would like to give you positive feedback, but I can't seem to get in. Probably my computer. Can you cut and past this response?
My expert, Dori, was great. She was very quick in responding to my answer and very detailed about the item in question. I would use her again.
Thank you so much. I sent this on to customer support to see if they could weighin on how to get back into feedback. These comments really support our record and we greatly appreciate them so I will see if they can help you. I do not think that they can cut and paste in a response. Dori
