Customer Question
I have several dolls...

I have several dolls mostly by Effenbee, I need to sell and I want to make sure I get a fair price.

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.

I have W.C Fields, Mae West, Tom Sawyer, Becky for a start.

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

They are not boxed but kept in a cabinet with doors since they were purchased. Nothing is missing.
