    Found this in my Mother in Laws doll collection that I inherited. It looks really old and is marked patent pending. Don't know much about doll collecting but I'm getting intrigued. How can I find out how old this item is? No dates on it anywhere!

      Hi Sara, the expression is so great! This doll is only marked patent pending? Nothing else? There is a doll expert who will help you soon:)

      Hello Jewels! On the back of the dolls neck it says Ideal patent pending. I will add a picture of the marking. The only info my mother in law left on her USB was a photo and labeled it "old doll " makes me wonder if she even knew much about it.

      Oh wow, I did Google doll with patent pending and ideal dolls came up! Manikin is a member who is an expert, she would know. I am just hanging out at home so I can do some looking for you, I have to research, I'm not a doll expert, but I love them! Brb... :)

      Yes Jewels, my mother in law collected dolls. She loved dolls. Always said her family was so poor growing up that she never had many dolls to play with so she thought that was why she loved getting
      them as an adult. I will post some pictures of them as I sort through her stuff. She also bought so many clothes shoes accessories and everything for the dolls.
    12. saraannburdette, 7 years ago
      She liked the preemie dolls, reborn dolls and ones that are realistic from what I can tell. They are quite cute but I will be keeping only a select few and hopefully finding a buyer for the rest.
