Antique roadshow: Guests show off rare ‘terrible’ dolls

An Antiques Roadshow guest couldn’t believe her creepy doll collection was worth thousands of pounds.

Expert Judith Miller discussed the dolls on a recent episode of BBC One, when a guest who bought the dolls came to Belfast for appreciation. The woman did not know much about the dolls but said they were made in 1972.

While expert Judith isn’t too keen on them, she knows they’re a huge collector’s item, especially for those in the United States who are avid dolls – and will snap them up in no time.

The guest then went on to explain that there was a “scary” feature on the dolls that made them less popular with children.

She said: “The little feet are completely unsteady. But they have a special feature that makes them scarier for most girls. If you pull this little rope, the eyes will change. color”.

“What they’ve got for them, they’re absolutely in excellent condition. You’ve got the box ready and they’re rare – they’ve become huge mainly in the United States. So they’ve got them,” she said. Let’s talk a little bit about value.

“I think in today’s market you would definitely be looking at £300 for the outfit and £1,000 for the doll.

Judith later revealed to guests that the collection could be worth up to £5,000, as she chose one of the doll’s outfits and added: “I still laugh that in the ’70s, I too somewhat appalled, that I was wearing an outfit like this.”
