Hi Manny, Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. The Franklin Mint, established in 1964, is renowned for producing high-quality collectibles and commemoratives. Initially focusing on producing coins and medallions, it later expanded into creating exquisite die-cast models, sculptures, and fine art replicas. Notable for its attention to detail and craftsmanship, the Mint collaborated with renowned artists and designers, ensuring authenticity and excellence in its products. Collectors worldwide covet its limited edition pieces, often imbued with historical significance or inspired by popular culture. Despite controversies over marketing strategies, the Franklin Mint remains a prominent name in the collectibles market, revered for its dedication to precision and artistry. Despite this, Franklin Mint collectibles remain in high supply with lower demand, which keeps values low. While several eBay sellers have listed this doll online at high prices, I am not able to confirm if any of them are actually able to sell the doll at those (high prices). Ones that are sold at public auction usually bring less than $500. Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is: A vintage Franklin Mint "Princess Diana" porcelain doll Late 1980s Diana is shown wearing the Catherine Walker "Elvis Dress" she wore on November 8, 1989, in Hong Kong.
