So please double check information and view pictures closely. I'm describing what I can see and what the box/tag says. The doll itself measures about 14 inches tall (the box is obviously a bit bigger) She looks like she has a glued on wig? She has sleep eyes that open when she sits up/close when she lays down.The end of her box reads "Valentine Dolls Inc - New York Valentine Dolls "Adorable Dolls" She has a wrist tag which reads in part "Your new Valentine Dolly Has Real Saran hair on the reverse side it tells you how to care for the dolls hair and then list the address as Valentine Dolls Inc. 200 fifth Avenue New York 10, N. I believe she is made of hard plastic. She is jointed at the neck, shoulders, and thighs. Condition : The box is old and worn, when you lift the doll out of the box you can see some tears on the inside of the box.
Her clothing has a lot of strings here and there, but I don't see any major rips. She may be a bit dirty/dusty, but I don't notice much wrong with her other than she is old. I see a tiny scratch on the paint next to her nose.
I DID NOT however completely undress her as I didn't want to ruin anything or rip her wrist tag, so I may have missed something. To me she looks like she was not played with much and was just stored in her box. I don't notice any maker signatures on her. I tried to look her up and while I found some information about this company I can't find a single doll like her, so she seems pretty rare for that reason and also to still have her original box.I'm not sure of her value if any since I can't find anything at all to compare her with, feel free to make any offers, I will consider them. UPDATE : I'M GETTING MESSAGES ON HERE. SOMEONE SEEMS VERY CONVINCED SHE IS A MARY HOYER DOLL. I'M NOT SURE SINCE SHE HAS A HAND TAG/BOX THAT READ SOMETHING ELSE.
SHE IS NOT MARKED THAT I CAN FIND ANYWHERE HOWEVER, SO IT'S PUZZLING. The item "Vintage Hard Plastic Valentine Dolls Inc SUPER RARE in Box 14 Inch Mary Hoyer" is in sale since Saturday, February 16, 2019.
