18” porcelain doll made by Dolls by Jerri. Kept in custom glass case. Only handled a minimal amount. Never played with. Exceptional quality and condition.
Purchased by my mother in 1984 as a gift for me.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful doll. Such collectors dolls are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
Your doll was made in the antique dolls style but with modern equipment and knowhow. It is a very wellkept doll in good condition and it is collectors item for collectors of newer dolls. However it was made in many editions and many numbers of each edition which influences the value. Today dolls like this tend to be sold for less than the original retail value which is a disappointment to many collectors.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online toys auction, where I believe the Jerri doll has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the wellkept lovely doll. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
