Beside the fact that maybe the doll is not in mint enough condition, is there any reason dolls from the 1940s that were made by Ideal Toy Company are not in as much favor as certain Effanbee dolls? I have sold a number of antique Effanbee dolls for good money and am mystified why my little Ideal doll is at a major reduced price.
I've been searching for hours but I can not find this doll with a 1999 body and a 2004 head.
Anyone know her story?
In my travels to my honey-hole thrift stores today, I found a doll mold. It's out of my normal buying criteria but I was intrigued and like to learn new things.
Anyway after trying to find solid information on it and it potential value I am coming up dry.
I took a few pictures of the back of the head and base
You can see "9 or g" "made in Germany" "11 "JDK 221"
The base says, "Barons Mold" "3-483" "1983"
Is it a legitimate Kestner?
Who is Baron molds?
Is it a 221 or a 483?
Can it be listed on eBay without getting people upset?
Or am i out $5.
