Customer Question

I have two dolls that may be antiques. My mother-in-law gave them to me for my
daughter who has no interest in them. They are blonde and supposedly their hair is
human and their teeth are make from pearls. I have no idea how old they are but
my mother-in law had them as a child and she was born in 1906. Would there be any
markings I could look for? They are about 20" tall and their eyes open and close.

Hi, my name is Jennifer.I"m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

If you can upload a photo, I'm happy to take a look for you. Markings, if any, would be on the back of the neck, back of the head, or on tags on the seams of the body.

Please note I don't work via phone call, but sometimes the system auto-sends a phone call request. If you get one of those,please ignore. I prefer to await online responses.
