What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

It is a cute doll. Such vintage toys are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
Based on the marks in the back of the head I would say that the doll was probably made in Japan in the 1930s. The head is made of porcelain and the body is probably made of some kind of papermache and the lims of composition. The doll resembles European dolls from the early 1900s. As for the value it is important that the head is without chips, hairlines or cracks.

The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online toys auction, where I believe the doll has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to your grandmothers doll. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
Thank you
