    For first doll in blue -There were 2 companies I know of that used that mold number 275
    Ernst Heubach of Koppelsdorf, Thuringia, Germany and Armand Marseille . There should be a logo also or some letters on back of neck ,under her hair or under the leather that her head and shoulders is in . She dates 1880-1920. She is a Bisque doll called a "dolly face " type . She is re dressed in newer clothes I would get antique clothes for her to keep her in right era . Look again for a horseshoe logo maybe or a A M on her . All the rest of dolls are newer collectible dolls from 1980'and 1990's when they were the craze . They were not cheap to buy but the market for them has come to a stand still and they have lost most of their value and there is low interest in collectors in them .Sorry but the Antique one is the only one of real value . make sure no cracks to head or chips . She is nice doll !

    Oh I missed the next 2 that are composition . They are NOT newer collectible dolls but date from 30' to 40's . They are referred to as Mama dolls . I need to know what is marked on back of their necks . It will id who made them,One is missing her teeth but for composition they are in nice condition for age again in newer clothes . The collectible refers to other 2 and your other post .

    Your Bisque Antique doll in blue also has a newer wig which should be replaced with a antique one . Common bisque dolly face dolls have fallen in price in last few years . Collectors are more fussy and want them all in the right era clothes, hair ect . if you love as she is them enjoy her they are treasures to be taken care of by us to pass along to next generation

    got a camera and can answer your questions - blue dressed doll pictures I will be adding more pictures showing the markings on he back. The large doll - sending picture also hard to read has "EFFANBEE Bubbles Cope 1924 made in USA " this is the mama doll, I believe. Pictures are on their way - thanks for helping me. I apologize for this long delay.
