Antiquemys…
(17 items)

I posted several pictures of dolls found in my Aunt's home after she passed away. I have no information about any of the dolls I am posting but, have been asked to provide a close up picture of their face along with a picture of the back of their neck. I would be grateful for any information involving their origin and value. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

    This is a Mark Farmer doll that came in a kit .Not an antique . I am thinking most of your collection are not true Antiques . You may need to take them to someone that can hold them . I person we can tell so much more like quality of bisque or porcelain and age .
    The most commonly found reproduction china dolls are those made by companies such as the Mark Farmer Company of California circa 1940s-1970s. The Mark Farmer Company started out as a family run novelty toy company back in the 1940s. The first so-called Jennie June reproduction china doll they made proved so popular that they branched out and began making more different models and in different sizes. They pulled molds directly from original antique dolls that customers brought to them, as well as creating some of their own models. Most of their products are marked Mark Farmer.
