Antique Asian doll??
« on: August 31, 2019, 01:21:08 AM »
I'm trying to gather as much info on her as I can she is Japanese or Chinese I feel like she is very old. How do I find out how to date when she was made and value her.  Also likes to have real human hair but her skin and all is some sort of fabric I have no idea how to post pictures on here

If she has writing on her anywhere, i might be able to tell you which country she's from. Her dress is not japanese, and the fan is probably your best bet for pinning down the exact culture she's supposed to represent. That might have nothing to do with where she was made, of course.
For what its worth, my first guess is Chinese style, not actually made in china. She looks like a doll made for non chinese market or made in other countries, like taiwan or maybe even japan. Her face reminds me pretty strongly of some older japanese toys I've seen. But she's not really like a typical vintage doll from japan.

Also, what are her face and earrings made of?

Her construction will tell you where she's from.  For example, she looks like she has individual fingers, and sewn on nail polish and shoes. Does her hairstyle look original, or has it  been changed? If her body is fabric, what's inside? Is she poseable  or stiff? Wires, beans, etc?

Those are the details you can use to ID her. I would also try asking on an antiques forum or two. 

If you can give me more details, I'd be happy to help you poke around, but she seems prettty hard to pin down from a casual search.

Hey!  Found this ebay auction, the doll looks like a close cousin to yours. The seller might be able to tell you something? I dunno.
