Customer Question
Have you heard of...

Have you heard of ~happy land collection 5?

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.

Bid on a doll about 40 yrs ago-all I can find on the doll is on the sole of her shoe! It says, happyland studio5

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

She has porcelain face and hands-dressed in blue velvet, with hat that has flowers attached. Bottom of shoe is stamped "happyland studio 5"
