I have 2 dolls that have a "Stork" on the back of the neck.

Customer Question
I have 2 dolls...

I have 2 dolls that have a "Stork" on the back of the neck. I believe the dolls date around 1900.

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.

On the back it says made by Parsons-Jackson co. Cleveland, Ohio

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Arms, head, and legs all articulate. Painted blue eyes.

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Is it possible to upload photos of the item, including any and all marks/signatures? There is NO FEE for adding photos, even if you need to call customer service for help with adding photos at 1(###) ###-####

There should be a +ADD FILES feature next to our Send button.

If not, then there is a paperclip above the reply box that you click to attach photos.

The photos won’t upload unless you also have at least one word in the text box! You won’t see the attached photo along with the text before you post it, but you will see the paperclip or attach button turn green.

Alternately, you can upload them to the free site www.imgur.com and post the link here.

If that doesn’t work, please reach out to Customer Service for help at no additional charge:

I look forward to working with you.

Sincerely, Jennifer
