      some of these dolls are called flag dolls. it depends on whether or not htey have a seam across the ear and what kind of shoes they wear.. in the 50's my sister and i bought them nude and made the outfits. their value probably isn't over $10 i have many of them and love them.

      If they have knees that bend and eyes that close They might be Vogue Jill dolls. I had one about 1957 shortly before Barbie dolls.
