Help with Santa, Wizard? dolls, please

OlychickAugust 11, 2011

Hi, I am helping with a charity auction, writing the catalog for bidders and someone has donated two large "dolls" - one that is like an old european santa, the other similar but with a blue velvet outfit with a moon and stars motif, and a real fur vest. The pics are bad - the Santa looks disheveled because I was rushed, but he's quite beautiful and the "wizard" has one of his feet wrapped for storage.

I am trying to figure out if these are homemade dolls or something else. Is there any way to tell? A place to look for a mark or?? What do I call them for them that I can use for the auction book? How do I determine value?

The heads, hands and feet are all ceramic. The fabrics seem to be first quality as do the hair and beards. Any guidance you can give me is appreciated.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

found the info I need, thanks.
