Customer Question
I have a girl...

I have a girl and boy porcelain Dutch dolls right from Holland that are in good condition that are 57 years old. Can you give me an estimate worth amount before I go to an antique dealer today. Thanks

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. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

They are dolls that are about 2ft in high and are in the costume of Dutch children with the wooden shoes.

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

They do move their heads when you move their legs.

No. I am not sending anymore money. If you cannot answer with a rough estimate with the info I have given you, I do not plan on researching any further where it will cost me additional monies

This is a pair of boy and girl celluloid dolls in Dutch dress from the 1940's

having a value of $40 to $60 for the pair.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local), Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, eBay and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an
auction house near you and consign to them.
Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get five-star feedback for answers.
