I have a 20" Grace Putnam doll with bisque head and bisque…

I have a 20"...

I have a 20" Grace Putnam doll with bisque head and bisque arms/ legs. She looks pristine including soft body. I've not seen a large Grace Putnam with this much bisque. Any idea of value?

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.

I really don't know much. It was in my Mom's things when she passed. The doll does appear to have the proper stamp on the back of the neck. I dok not see any markings on the arms or legs. No chips or cracks. Painted Brown eyes. Beautiful doll. No clothes.

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

I don't think so. Thanks!
