Hello:
These dolls were purchased in Germany 1954-1957. They are in pristine condition - boxed and put away. They were never played with nor put on display - I didn't even remember they existed until I found them after my mom passed away. I have three girl ethnic dolls in traditional clothes and the Hummel boy doll. I was going to attach photos but I don't see how to do it from this site. Please advise.
Thanks, Mary

Hi Mary,

I generally only assess one item or matched set per question here. Are the international country dolls all by the same maker with original boxes?

For images, there may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:

Sorry, Nora. These probably aren't worth much so I didn't want to pay $38 for each one. Can I decline now or is it too late? Mary
