Customer Question

I have an antique bruno schmidt doll from around 1900. She has a wooden body, porcelain head with bsw in a heart and 2007-3. She is 17 inches tall with brownish sleep eyes with some eye lashes left. She has mohair, an old ivory dress that is ripped a little at the sleeves and tan booties that are deteriorating due to age on the bottom. If you look on the auction website and seach for bruno schmidt doll her pictures will come up. Do you have an estimate of how much she might be with? I bought her for 121 dollars which may have been too high but I liked her. Where would I take her in cincinnati ohio area to be cleaned and appraised? Thank you
