Customer Question

I have a old baby doll that is marked E.T.N Co, N.Y. on the back of her neck. I found this information online but it list (below) other abbreviations for Elektra toy and Novelty Company but not E.T.N Co N.Y.
Is it possible that this doll is from Elektra? Her eyes are not sideways they look straight on but her hair is molded and she appears to be a composition style doll.
"Elektra Toy & Novelty Company dolls 1912-1920 - NYC, USA, made composition character dolls with a cloth body or all composition, most with painted eyes glancing to the side with molded painted hair. Many dolls resemble German bisque doll molds similar to K & R and Kestner, designed for Elektra by artist Ferdinand Pany. Doll marks Elektra T. NC NY., Elektra T. N. C. NY., ET & N Co. or E. T. & N Co, ETAN Co. N.Y."

At your convenience, please send a full view of the front of your doll. There is just one image attached here that I can see on my end of the markings on the back of neck.

There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

I would like to find out her age and what company made her? Are they still in business, ad what is her value.
