If you have many dolls it would probably be best for you to get an appraiser to look at them in person, if they are not marked with a makers name, it is impossible to find them by way of online. The appraiser can look at your dolls and be able to value them based on condition, age and quality. If you like I can get a list of appraisers you can contact in your area.
