She's in kind of rough shape, but she has a glued on wig, painted on shoes and no markings. The head, shoulders and hips are strung and the dress does not appear to be original.
I have an early plastic 16" Terri Lee with her original dress, who has a cat odor problem. I have thoroughly washed her (with bleach and a magic eraser and hot water), inside and out, including unstringing her so I could scrub inside better. She's currently soaking in enzyme cleaner. She still has a distinct, if subtle, aroma, though she's been thoroughly sanitized.
If it wasn't a Terri Lee, she would have gone straight into the trash when I got a good whiff of her.
(I got this doll for $3 at a thrift store, so I'm not OUT a lot of money, but -- if it weren't for the eww d' cat odor -- she'd be worth a few hundred dollars.)
I have an 18-in composition Shirley Temple doll that came to me with what appears to be original wig in original set, pretty nice condition overall with a few not-too-bad cracks on the face. She is redressed in a very nicely made dress and onsie, and replaced shoes & socks. Question I have is - she is marked appropriately on the back of the neck but not on her back as you usually see. What I wanted to know - were some of these just not marked on the back? I do think she's got the right body. Thanks for any info. Mary
the doll is 20 cm/7,5 inch long (small model) and wears a summer skirt. it was bought by my grandma in germany back in 1956 for sure, but has never been played with. it seems to be in almost mint condition. it does not have the original box, but some handmade unoriginal close made by grandma follows.
any help to estimate the value/reasonible sales price of this doll would be greatly appreciated. and merry christmas too from denmark ;-)
Does anyone know the maker or the doll's name in the photo. If you look close the box is shown behind the girl with her eyes closed. The photo was taken in 1967 or 1968. Thanks in advance. I would love to find one again.
We live in Arkansas and my mother in law pasted away in May leaving about 800+ in dolls. Where is the best place to sell these dolls. Seems like there has been a decrease in interest. Some are the cheaper ones but some are german and expensive. Thanks
