    Hi The 2nd photo I will address first . She is a very desirable Early China doll dating about 1860,s I need to see back of hair also on China dolls . There hair do's dates them , She is not a common China not rare but Hard to find .
    You need to look for any cracks in face or shoulders . I also need to see body if it is replaced it decreases their value . Also How tall ? Very very nice China ! Made in Germany .If you list each one separate and tell me more in your description it would help . I always need to see body or at least some of it under clothes and size . Look at back of necks for any markings or symbols also and tell me what you see best yet photo it . This China doll is one that all China advanced collectors would love .

    4th doll is also very desirable . She is a Greiner Paper mache doll ( Coverd wagon hair do ) also early 1860's
    I need to see her legs and how tall is she . She is a high value doll also .

    1st doll is what appears to be a poured wax doll not a wax over . meaning she is solid wax not just a coating of it . How tall and need to see body :-) You recieved some wonderful dolls wow your lucky they are all high quality and not so common to see here on CW :-) Welcome to our site . I will write more need to rest my eyes a bit :-) What is stamped on 3rd doll just germany there should be a number or name also

    the first and second doll are both about 24 inches give or take , it appears that the bodies and clothing on all 4 are all original. the 4th doll is about 14 to 16 inches give or take . the 3rd doll is about 8 to 10 inches . i would be more than happy to snap a few more pictures or examine them further but at the moment they are safe and sound in a box that is far to challenging for me to get down without assistance, i hope the information from my memory is a little helpful. thanks for the quick reply

    They are all in replaced clothes but correct for the period . I would like a close up of China Doll I need to see her painting better and also The Greiner Paper mache 's face . Does she have wood legs ?

    i dont remember if that one had wood legs / i just posted 4 other doll pictures as well have you seen those ? i will go now and see if i can try to get the dolls down and out of the box .
