About Porcelain Dolls
If you have a treasured porcelain doll, or a collection of them, you better keep them well out of reach of children. While originally created as children's playthings, porcelain dolls are now mostly antiques, and some of them are quite valuable. An antique porcelain doll most likely dates from the late 1800s or early 1900s, and can come in a wide range of sizes and shapes. It could be a delicate, all-porcelain figurine, or a porcelain baby doll with a soft body and porcelain head. Expect lacy, old-fashioned outfits on these dolls. eBay is a great resource for porcelain dolls, as sellers offer a huge variety of vintage, used porcelain dolls. Use the convenient shipping options to add to your porcelain baby doll collection, or simply to indulge a desire to own just one of these gorgeous dolls. And unless you have unusually careful children or grandchildren, stick to soft baby dolls and Barbies for them.
