Hello, I was looking to get some information on this 6" three-faced doll from my Grandmother's estate. It has a bisque head and hands with a cloth body. She has three expressions - smiling, crying and sleeping. There are no markings on this doll. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    This is a reproduction of of what was the first like her "Trudy Doll 3 faces" As you turn head one side is sleeping ,awake ect .It would be wearing a bonnet to cover other faces. It was most likely made in 1980 appx date . Many companies copied this doll during late 1970-1990's . Without a company name on yours it is hard to tell who made her ,
    She was first produced in 1946 by the Three-In-One Doll Corporation, as the pink tag reads "An Elsie Gilbert Creation.
    Here is an original one they were made of composition . yours is porcelain

    Thanks so much for all the info Manikin, I really appreciate it. I would assume that based on its age and the fact that its a reproduction then it isn't really worth much.

    looking closer at quality of porcelain/bisque she could be a bit older maybe as early as 1960's hard to tell without her in my hands .
