My wife inherited this doll from her mother. I have been researching for over a month now, attempting to get information on the name for this doll. I do know that the back of the neck is labeled "Rustie" 2004 # 077/200. My research shows that most of the Rustie dolls are given names by the maker, but I can not find any Rustie dolls that were made in lots of 200. Most are in lots of 750, 1000, 1200 etc. This beautiful porcelain doll is 42 inches tall, comes with a metal stand. I do have the original box but I do not have the certificate of authenticity. If anyone out there can help me find the name for this doll it would be greatly appreciated.

    My brother had collected Rustie's Dolls awhile back. I will check with him to see if he may know what her name is? I myself have two of the 42" dolls that were given to me as gifts. You will see allot of her dolls on the E-bay site. Unfortunately most of them do not sell for much. (only the one of a kind) I am not sure about the one you have, I'll get back to you soon.

    Rustie did some beautifully dressed dolls and they sold quite high in the 1990's till the market for artist and collectible dolls hit bottom and no longer were selling . Kathy is right they don't sell well in todays market and I agree a one of a kind would fair better . She is beautiful doll as all Rustie's were . Display her and really her name is not that important as how she looks and who is attracted to her . Very nice !
    PS
    Rustie made many many dolls and sold a lot on qvc or hsn also . She did many different amounts of a mold from 1 to 2000 and many in between . She also did small editions for a special event like HSN ( Home shopping network ) she really flooded the market with her dolls and they lost a lot of value as so many were made over the years .
