  1. We are looking for help with the identification of two vintage / antique dolls that were our Grandmothers. Could I send you photos to review or can you suggest someone who might be interested in reviewing? Thanks for your time and help. Kurt

  2. I have a Horsman Perthy doll. I think from the 1950’s. He is wearing a pink and white stripe bathrobe. I am trying to find out what he wore under it. Most likely pjs but what did they look like? Thanks for whatever help you can give me, LoraLee

    • LoraLee, according to Don Jensen’s book “Horsman Dolls, the Vinyl Era,” Perthy wore a blue flannel one piece pajama, trimmed in pink. There is a small b&w photo but hard to see the PJs because he has the robe on. It looks like a footie pajama, with ribbons tied at the ankles.

  3. Hi, my name´s Luciane, i,m from Brazil and looking for somebody who can tell me about a E.I Horsman Doll i bought some years ago and I can´t find any other doll similar to the one I have. I´s like to have more informations about it and specially what is its value. The doll itá a boy, the eyes are not painted, but theu open and close and are made of glass, i guess. The hair is natural, the joints are made of a “cord” (?) there no metal on it. In the back on its neck it´s written 1924, by E.I. Horsman Co Inc Germany and the number 43. and in both arms on the joints the number 37. The doll its in perfect state and its naked. Please, if you can help me with any information about it I´d aprecciate.

    • Luciane, Horsman outsourced production of some bisque and celluloid dolls to Germany in the 1920s. The bisque Tynie Baby dolls are marked 1924, but there are also reproductions with this same marking. If you can post a clear photo of the face and the whole doll to my Facebook page, I can tell you whether it is a reproduction or original. I don’t know what they are worth, but if you look at my post How Much Is My Doll Worth?, there is information on how to research the value.

  4. I have a Famlee Doll made by Berwick Doll Co of New York in the 1920’s. It has 5 heads, some clothing, but unfortunately the heads are not in great condition. I live in Richmond Va. and am looking for someone to give me an appraisal with the possibility of selling. Can you give me the name of a reputable doll collector in our area? thanks! Joanne Crews

    • Hi Joanne, I don’t know anyone in VA but I would recommend contacting the United Federation of Doll Clubs’ Regional Director for Virginia. She will know the best resources for you. Her contact info is here: http://regions.ufdc.org/regions/region-11. It is hard to find the Famlee heads in good shape, but there are collectors looking for the body and clothes too, so you should be able to find a buyer.

  5. I have several horsman and other dolls I received from a storage unit I purchased I was wondering if you would be interfered in buying them please email me back thanks

  6. Do you know of any doll hospitals close to the DFW area? My mother received her doll 12/25/40. Texas heat from our attic (husband was an idiot) damaged an arm & leg. I am unable to locate the one that was in Dallas. Your help is greatly appreciated. Regards
