Dolls

Item picture

 

I just bought two dolls as an Estate Sale and I don’t know much about them. I bought them because I thought they were in good shape.  This doll is about 22”-24” from head to toe. She appears to be of porcelain and held together, inside,  by a white elastic cord. The entire body feels and looks like it is porcelain.

The markings on the back of her head are:

A15T
(ABETTE,  CABETTE or GABETTE)

I find that A15 indicates a Steiner but that is as far as I can get.

Her eyes appear to be glass and are green. They look like real eyes. Her eye brows and eyelashes are painted.
 
Her fingers are all intact and I have not taken off her clothing to look for other marks.

The dress and clothing appear to be in very good shape.
 
She is on a metal stand marked:

311340
IMSCO
TAIWAN

 The other doll I listed is as follows:

 

I just bought two dolls as an Estate Sale and I don’t know much about them. I bought them because I thought they were in good shape.  This doll is about 13” from head to toe. She appears to be of porcelain and held together, inside,  by a white elastic cord.

The markings on the back of her head are:

SFBJ
236
PARIS
6

Her fingers are all intact and I have not taken off her clothing to look for other marks.

The pink dress shows wear and tear on the right elbow.  Other than that she appears to be in good shape.

Did I list this properly?  I have no WATCH and I believe this may be a valuable doll. I'm afraid I need to edit my posting.

 

Any help, recommendations, and thoights would be appreciated.

Trying to identify doll

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?

 

Dolls discussion

These dolls are each 11" tall.  They have stapled on clothes.  They each have a tag, but there is not a maker on the tags or the dolls.  I thought that these might be Dream World dolls, but they don't have jointed necks.  I am thinking that maybe they are Dream World knock offs.  

Dolls discussion

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.
