Customer Question
I have an antique...

I have an antique doll with leather body, hinged knees and china head. Mother bo ught her some years ago in Pennsylvania. She is at let 15 inches tall. I need to sell her and have no idea what she is worth but know she is a very nice doll.

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Her wig has been restored.
