Customer Question
I have several china...

I have several china head dolls from before WWI. Are they valuable?

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

My mother collected these dolls. some are large-about 18 to 20 inches, others are around 8 to 10 inches. Some have blond hair and some have black hair.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Can't think of anything
