Customer Question
Hello! I have a...

Hello! I have a doll and I'm sure her face is the work of Modigliani. But I need an expert opinion.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Only this. I can send you a picture

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

The time this doll has been conceived matches with the time Modigliani was alive

Hello,

It is not possible to state the maker of this early 20th century doll.

I will opt-out and open your question again to all the experts at no additional charge. If someone knows the answer they will post a response to you here. You do not need to re-list your question and this does not cost you extra. There is not a guarantee that you will receive a response.

I will not be able to respond back after opting-out

I do hope you find the information that you seek.

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help. I have some questions:

1) Are there any marks, stamps, or labels anywhere on the doll?

2) What materials are the head, hands, and body made of?

3) How do you know the time period of the doll?

Thank you.

Thank you. What makes you think this is from Modigliani's period instead of more recently? Family story, date of acquisition, etc.?
