    Doll #1 is I believe a Millners Model doll . When you can I need a close up of face and legs . Dates then from 1850's appx . I can confirm it when I see close up and lower legs .
    Doll 2 is called a Flat Top china these are more common to find and date 1860-70's she is a variation of the plain flat top with her curls .
    Doll 3 is a Kling China a child 1880's
    Doll 4 appears to be unglazed by the photo. she would be a parian doll from about 1880's also .
    The first doll is only one in original clothes . If you are inclined you can email me close up of faces and I will post my reply here on CW
    First doll is highest in value and desirability by collectors .
    In Antique dolls rarity ,original bodies , clothes and damage all affect them . I do need to see back of head on the first one does she have a bun ? also on your other post I need to see back of hair on China does she have a bun in back ?

    the 3rd doll in the black and white dress says germany 187 on the back - the blonde one is not glaze or shiney as i would say and it has wooden arms and legs as well. the second doll with the green dress has a number 3 on the back. also on the original post the large china looking doll does have a buntype style in the back but it is not a round looking bun . oh and also that paper mache doll has wooden legs and arms as well

    The 3rd doll is a "Kling China " Kling is company name :-)
    The China if she has a bun or a braided look in a knot would be earlier than 1860's and value increases with bun I am also trying to see if she has brush strokes that gently make a brushed look to face . When you get a better photo of her front face and back of head post it ok or email it to me at so we don't fill pages of her . The 1 st doll in other post with wooden legs is a Millners Model that is what they are called and have very nice value
