My grandmother recently died and while going through her attic, I came upon a box full of old dolls. I have no clue what any are. Any help would be great.

1980's?!?
by: Anonymous

I'm not so sure of your identifying these dolls as made in the 1080s. I have one just like the little one in white that belonged to my grandmother. She was a young mother during WW II and that doll, along with others were never, ever allowed to be touched by anybody. See if there are any markings.

I have a matching doll

Dear Cathye:

I have the same doll as you do... We share the little yarn brunette in the green velvet dress. I have not been able to find any markings on her. If you find information on her please advise. I have similar dolls that match one not clothed, those too have no markings. If I find anything I will come back to post.

Hi there - from what I can see of your pictures, your dolls mostly look to be from the 1980s thereabouts.

Some reproductions with bisque/china heads and soft bodies. The smaller hard plastic dolls dressed in national costumes could be Alexander, there was a series bought out of the 8 inch dolls all dressed in costumes from different countries.

They are quite collectible, and should have Alex or Alexander on their necks. A doll collector who collects these dolls should be able to confirm this for you and give you an idea of value, but checking out Alexander vintage dolls on eBay might help too....
