Doll Identification and Reference Links

This indexed list focuses on identifying dolls, not selling dolls off eBay. Links about cleaning, collecting/buying, identifying, packing, photographing, repairing, and selling dolls on eBay are included. Have patience while the page loads; the photos are worth the wait.

A     B     C     D     E     F     G     H     I     J     K     L     M     N     O     P     Q     R     S     T     U     V     W   XYZ

If you don't find a doll or company listed separately, look through the references that are listed by year or by marks. Sorry, I cannot ID dolls for you; go here for more help.

Searching this site: Use your browser’s page search (Edit>Find in Internet Explorer, for example) or use the alphabetic links above.

These websites are for reference only, and dolls shown are not for sale.
None of these links are paid ads or paid click-throughs. A human being, not a bot, compiles this research. Some links were shared by the eBay Dolls Discussion Board. All these links are “board-friendly” and, following rules specified by eBay for posting links, they can be posted because the dolls shown on the directly linked page aren’t for sale. This complies with eBay's rule against advertising on the boards. Links are for education reference only.

Please comment if you have doll ID links to share (no sales-only web pages). Thank you!

Dress-me dolls by various makers, late 1940s–1970s

Dress-me dolls were sold both nude and inexpensively costumed, with clothing usually stapled, glued, or sewn onto the doll. When clothed, they were also called character, costume, fashion, international, shelf, souvenir, travel, or world dolls. Many companies produced crochet, knitting, and sewing patterns meant for the nude dress me dolls.
Earlier dolls are made of composition. The most common type is 6" to 8" tall and made of thin, cheap plastic, sometimes with moveable limbs and sleep eyes. Modern dress-me dolls are usually marked made in Taiwan or China.

“Milliner’s model” dolls,
1820–1860. See Papier-mâché; Antique.
The term “milliner’s model” is a misnomer.'s%20Models%202.pdf (PDF file)
In The Collector's Book of Doll Clothes, Dorothy S., Elizabeth Ann, and Evelyn J. Coleman discuss the misnomer’s origin: “They [dolls with papier-mâché heads, leather bodies, and wooden lower limbs] are referred to as ‘Varnished heads’ in the 1829–1833 Day Book of Lewis Page at the Henry Francis du Pont Winterthur Museum. In the twentieth century, Eleanor St. George [in The Dolls of Yesterday] named this type of doll ‘Milliner's Model.’ Her correspondence indicates that this was a name she created without historical documentation or precedent for it.”

Walda, china-and-cloth modern doll

“Walda” is a moniker coined by nurse_edna and used by eBay Dolls Discussion Board members for a particular china-and-cloth doll. She was cheaply mass-produced in Taiwan and China during the late 1970s and early 1980s. The doll had no name, and her box was labeled only with this almost-but-not-quite haiku:
“Doll of china / with body of cloth / wearing western dress”
Some sellers misrepresent this doll’s age and value, and she is often spotted amongst the legitimate antique dolls. The name Walda is a feminization of the “Where’s Waldo?” character’s name.
Hanover House (one of the distributors)
Photo, Walda advertisement, late 1970s to 1980s

Photo, Walda with her original box
Tribute video:
Walda in auctions:
Walda can be seen in a 1982 “Little House on the Prairie” season 9 episode, wearing the later red version of her calico dress. She played the pivotal role of Nancy’s doll in “The Return of Nellie.” (Thanks to lillimoved for spotting Walda’s TV debut.)
