Walda Porcelain Dolls 1970s-1980s

Items shown below are for reference

Walda porcelain doll faces 1970'sThe above ad was featured in the back of Readers Digest magazine, as well as other magazines in the 1970s-1980s.  The doll has a cloth body with stitched hips for bending, porcelain fired and painted white shoulder head, stationary glass like eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, cheek blush and rosebud red lips, with porcelain lower arms and legs.  She's usually found in a long prairie like cotton dress with bonnet, socks and shoes. 

Where in the world is Walda?  Today she can be found in antique shops,Porcelain Doll - Walda's Goodwill, Salvation Army, Mission stores and other Thrift stores, online auctions and online doll shops.  She's everywhere and usually is mis-identified as a genuine antique doll by, everyone it seems.

Thus, she became affectionaly known as "Walda" on the eBay doll discussion board, as she turned up so often, all over the place.  Yep, many people find one like her in their attic, their grandmother or other family members home, when they are cleaning it out and think "oh what a great antique doll".

 

Perhaps in another 50 years she will be considered an antique, but for now, she's a mass produced porcelain doll, sold in the 1970s-1980s and possibly longer, whose value today is nominal.  Giving her a name is probably the best way to help collectors find her in the huge porcelain doll market.
