Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

Unfortunately, the doll market is slumped currently. Dolls are re-selling for significantly less than they did a few decades ago and the market was further impacted since the Recession.

On today's market, a 40" tall late 20th century Ashley Belle doll in mint condition could sell for $100 - $175.
