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.

I have a beautiful black slave doll that i can't get any information on. She is dark brown bisque, has glass eyes that open and close, little white teeth and really pretty soft painted lips. Her face is so lovely and I think she has real hair glued on her head. She has movable arms and legs with a real straw shirt and an old cotton yellowish light brown top. The marking on the back of her neck read. Hanna S/O. S PB H the PB are in a star. She has such a beautiful face and is measures 8 inches. I have her a little more than 50 yrs.

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

Yes, PLEASE, PLEASE HELP!!!!! I thank you so much for taking the time to help me with any information that that you can give me.

Greetings, my name is ***** ***** I am a federally certified Fine Art and Antiques appraiser and licensed auctioneer with a Master’s degree from Sotheby’s Institute, UK. I can assist you with evaluating your doll but can be more precise if you can upload an image or two of her and the markings on the back of her neck. Would you like a few pointers on how to do this?

I look forward to assisting you,

Erin-Marie
