Customer Question
I have a doll...

I have a doll that was my grandmas. It is about 4 ft tall and is marked 191 G under that 17. She has a baked head with baked in teeth and the eyes are from Germany.

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.

There is a picture of the doll with my grandma at 5 years old. They are about the same height. My grandma died 3 years ago and was 94. So it is at least 85 years old?

Where did you get the value from? I have a doll hospital that estimate $1250
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 11 months ago

I must made a typo there, I thought I had written $1250.

I see that I wrote $250 and left out the 1, my apologies!
