Mystery Solved

    Doll #1 is a PMA (Plastic Molded Arts Doll) and also called a Duchess doll. These were plastic dime store type dolls . They often came in fancy display boxes with different names like "Hollywood Doll " Ect . They were meant as display dolls and not to play with . They are from very late 40's through 1950's . Have no real value in doll market as they were mass produced and very common to find . They were inexpensive novelty dolls .
    #2 Is a newer artist doll or what we call a collectors porcelain doll . Popular in the the 1980's and 1990's . They were produced from very expensive to cheaply as the market liked the beautiful lavish clothes . Usually bought by older ladies and hoping they would increase in value like an Antique doll . This did not happen and they have very little interest in today's doll collectors. They are just decoration dolls .
    #3 looks to be a Sun Rubber doll from 1950's
    #4 same as number one
    If you love them and they were in your family then maybe keepsakes . But there value is very low . Hope this helps :-)
