Customer Question
My mom gave me...

My mom gave me three of her dolls. She was 87 when she passed away last month. One doll is a M***** ***** made in New York. It appears to be in excellent condition to me having spent more time in a box than on display. Any idea what it might be worth or where it could be sold?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

The doll is dressed in a floral and lace type dress with a sun hat and is on a stand. Everything is intact.
