Artist Doll Condition Definitions offers items for sale that are part of a private collection. All our dolls were obtained in fancy doll and souvenir stores, at prestigious doll shows and auctions, from respectable private collectors and directly from artists. All our dolls are kept in a smoke-free, pet-free, children-free, climate controlled environment. However many of them were obtained on the secondary doll market, so not all of them are in mint/pristine condition due to being owned by someone previously. So we kindly advise you to read a description in the listing carefully, so the doll condition would be suitable for your collectors needs


  • In original package as it was supplied by artist, designer or factory, or just out of the package with the exception of manufacture flaws.
  • Package may show some minor storage wear or age with the contents in mint condition.
  • All accessories and papers such as Certificate of Authenticity and Hang Tag are included


  • Close to being mint condition. Item may be or not be in the original package, but may have some slight flaws. Flaws would be minor and mostly due to the natural aging process (for instance fabric may have slightly yellowed or elastic cords may have stretched due to age). No major flaws at all
