Dolls have a large body of collectors who will pay handsomely for them. While condition is important, the age of the doll and its maker are even more important. Antique dolls from noted doll crafters are highly coveted. Even though condition is not crucial to value, care must still be taken to stop further damage. Dolls can also be restored to add to their value. A reputable appraiser will provide the best information in all of these areas.
