Identifying a doll is best done by identifying the doll makers mark, if one is present it's often found on the back of the dolls head, on the back, under arms, bottoms of the feet, check your doll carefully, as the mark could be placed anywhere and many dolls were unmarked but sold with a wrist tag, that may have long since disappeared


12 March 2014 - English and French doll marks will be found on each Dolls By Country page, appropriate marks are also on each Dolls by Material pages plus;  Composition Doll Marks and Hard Plastic, Vinyl Doll Marks.


Here we will be adding antique to vintage doll marks for all the rest; American, Germany and surrounding areas, basically any marking we don't have a place for elsewhere, we'll concentrate sharing here; symbols, initials and less obvious doll markings, thus doll company pages will often have additional marks not shown here.   This project will take us awhile to complete, but we'll keep plugging away at it, hopefully to help and benefit you.
