Customer Question
I would like to...

I would like to know the approximate value of my 120 year old china doll with wavy black painted hair that once belonged to my great aunt.

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.

She has a cloth body with china hands and feet. She rests in a wooden bed built by my great, great grandfather and the pillow was sewn by my great, great grand mother and her daughters.

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

I don't really know I've never tried to find anything out before.
