This Question is from Rick!
My raggy doodle has a silk parachute leather cap, gloves, goggles with printed material readable which mentions patent applied for. Please see my image
Thank you for sharing your different variation of Raggy Doodle. I rather like the silk parachute.......more authentic.......than the heavy cloth parachutes on the several Doodles that I have.
They look somewhat
comic book menacing hanging from the ceiling!
Thank you for sharing!
This Question is from Kim!
My name is Kim, and I have a doll that I think may be a collectible. There was a tag that read, Emily, made of fine china, 1854 Edwin M Knowles, artist by Yolanda Bello, picture perfect babies collection. I hope you can tell me something about this doll.
Thank you, Kim
My knowledge of newer porcelain dolls is somewhat limited but will give you a direction in which to search.
My favorite online
24-hour doll show has taken over as the determining factor of most
Go to eBay. From the
home page, go to "Dolls & Bears"......then type Yolanda
Bello into the search at the top of the page. To narrow
search.....type in "Emily." On the left side of
pages.......you will see "completed items." Also, search
these to help determine the price she sold for.
If you do not find
matches the first time ..........check back often.........as there
are new listings daily.......sometimes hourly.
Thank you for writing.....
This Question is from Linda!
My question is what is the value of an old doll with hinged joints and teeth? These dolls should be at least 75 years old. One has a leather body, and I understand that adds value. Where should I look for markings on it?
Hi.........look on the back of the head....or on the shoulder plate for markings which will identify doll.
The value will be
determined based upon the condition of the doll. Value increases if
the head is bisque....unglazed porcelain.........with no cracks or
chips. Eyes and hair intact.
The leather body
attributes more to the doll's age than the value. Although the
condition of the body will be pertinent......although not as much as
the condition of the head. (Chipped fingers, etc.)
When you have located the mark.........if there is one, you will have a better chance of determining the identity and value.
There are hundreds
of dolls out there that fall into this description. If you have a
photo........that would help tremendously.
Thank you for writing.
This Question is from Lynn
Could you refer me to the appropriate source for price information on a Bye-lo doll? My sister who lives in Cheyenne, Wyoming has a Bye-lo that she is in need of an appraisal for tax purposes.
description information but at present, I do not have that at my
disposal. Any information that you can provide would be much
There are many doll price guides that will provide you with printed value estimation. These can generally be found in your local library.
Or you can go to the
ending auctions at ebay.......search for Byelo.......and print off
the final ending price of the auction. This will give a reasonable
market value of the doll.
Byelo is a very
popular doll among doll collectors, so it will be easily found in the
price guides and on ebay.
Thank you for
This Question is from Marlene!
I am Marlene, and I have a General MacArthur composition doll, 18", from 1942 that my Mother left me. I am interested in selling him on eBay and wondered if you would let me know his worth or close to it.
I have been looking
around to find his worth so that I can ask a fair price for me and
whoever is interested.
Thank you for your
help in advance Marlene
Hi.....I would go to eBay.....then Dolls & Bears.......type General MacArthur into "Search" and click. On the left side of the page......then select "completed items." It will give you the end results of auctions for this doll.
eBay pretty well
sets the market value any more. Price guides are way over the top.
If you don't find
anything right away.......just wait a few days. The last one I
observed was around 95.00........but condition will determine the

eBay is an excellent website for "value" information about dolls, or most anything else for that matter--however, to see what something has sold for, registration is required, so if you are looking for past sales of any particular doll, please register.
