Doll Collector Insurance

At Tollgate Private Clients we specialise in providing insurance for High Net Worth Individuals and, as a result, we provide cover for many individuals with valuable collections – including doll collections.

Collectible dolls are among the most popular and widely held collectibles and generally fall into three categories: antique, vintage, and modern.

 

Antique Collectible Dolls

Most antique dolls were made to look like adults and came with removable clothing. However, some dolls, particularly French bébé dolls and German ‘dolly-faced’ dolls, were made to look like children. Antique dolls, like modern dolls, were made as children's toys and so usually show at least some damage and wear. How much depends on what the doll was made of and, of course, how carefully it was handled by its original owner! From an insurance point of view some antique dolls – especially those in excellent condition – can carry the highest valuations and so require specialist cover.

 

Vintage Doll Collections

Generally speaking vintage collectible dolls were produced between 1930 and roughly 1980. This category includes some of the most famous collectible dolls – Barbie and Cindy. While many of these dolls were made of composites, vinyl, or plastic, cloth was also common, particularly for dolls designed for very young children. Cabbage Patch Kids started a major collectables fad in the 1980s, largely because of the wide range of variations that were made and the fact that each one was unique. The dolls all came with signed birth certificates so they became highly collectable.

Modern

Many modern dolls are simply continuations of vintage doll lines, such as Barbie, Madame Alexander, and Strawberry Shortcake, and some, such as Ginny and Raggedy Ann and Andy, are based on well-known antique doll lines.
