I found this charming little woman at a high end thrift store yesterday.  I took some photos of her and would like to know more about these half dolls.  She was priced at $30.  Did I spend too much?Continue

Ellen,

This beauty is a Dressel Kister and the mark on the front is their mark.  Dressel Kister dolls always have the very narrow bases.  I have looked her up in one of my books and she could be valued at $200.00 with no damage.  Without the rose probably $150.00.  I have the same doll in my cabinet and they are gorgeous.http://www.rubylane.com/shops/ilenestreasures

I do not recall who the maker of this half doll is.  She has a very interesting mark on her base.  Unfortunately the rose she seems to be holding is missing its flower.  Otherwise her beauty is self evident.  What do you think she is worth?

Thanks for taking the time.  :)   Ellen
