Customer Question
I have a colored...

I have a colored baby doll. My late mother had. She has movable head arms legs. Which are a little loose ,and was bought and given to my mom in 1933. she has 3 hair spouts (strings)?....she is starting to age she still looks fair and starting to peal, not much . Just wondering if you know if she is worth anything?

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?

She is about 8or 10 in but she is made to sit with her legs around in front of her. She was bought in Atlanta ga.
