    Looks like one of the marks for Heinrich Handwerck Doll hard for me to read on photo . If you take a pencil and run is lightly on name it will show better . You can wipe it of with water it won't hurt doll .

    thx, i will try that.

    I gave you all the info on other post . She is a Floradora by Armand Marseille . Look at your other post for all the info on company doll ok :-)
  7. breendy, 5 years ago
    Thx so much. I am so happy to know her name. Do you know her approx. worth?
  8. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
    You can mark this solved on both posts so it doesn't keep showing unsolved when we search for ones that need solving :-)
    Her value fluctuates in today's market ,But she can have no cracks, chips ect to head including fine line cracks . She has a replaced wig that lowers her value and no original clothes or Appropriate antique dress. Those all decrease her value . How tall is she ?
  9. breendy, 5 years ago
    She is 18". I could not find the edit button until I had already entered a second email, to show her face. I will mark them solved now. She is my only doll.
  10. breendy, 5 years ago
    She has no damage or imperfections that I have found.

    The top dollar I have seen with antique wig and clothes is 200 in that area a little below or above depending on a buyer . A few years ago before internet she would have sold sold for more . I recently sold my Floradora at my doll club all original factory clothes ,hair ,shoes she was never played with . She was 18 tall also . I sold her for 175.00 . That gives you a idea anyway . I would cherish her so many of these bisque dolls from end of 1800's into 1920's were broke so I see them all as treasures for us to care for :-)

    Thanks so much. She is a real doll to me.

    I am over 60 years old and lost all of my retirement $ and many of my treasures in the real estate debacle. Am still selling off things as I have to. Your advise has been great. I think Floradora will be my new confidente. Thanks again.

    I understand so well breendy . I don't know how many that the crash of stock market years ago took away 401k's and of coarse our houses are now worth much less . I have many friends who lost their retirement money in the downfall of market , it is sad to enter into what should be a time to enjoy life not worry but many of us are in same boat and we need a oar to row it :-(
    Hope you can keep her she has a long history and one wonders what was the little girl like that owned her ? Times were very tough back in the dolls day . Mostly farmers . Glad I could help you and Flo :-)
  15. breendy, 5 years ago
    I am actually glad she isn't a really high dollar doll because I would have to sell her, but maybe I can keep her now thanks to you and your willingness to share your knowledge. She has probably seen a lot in spite of the fact that she looks great.
  16. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
    Yes breedy we should all look so good at 100 yrs old :-) Let her be your comfort they do that well :-)
