Identification and Valuation

Unfortunately Diane’s Dolls and Bears does not offer an identification or valuation service for your own dolls and bears .. we recommend you contact your local auction house for this service.


A layaway service is available for dolls and bears over the value of £100 unless stated otherwise in the description.

A 50% non-refundable deposit of the total cost (including postage if applicable) is required to secure the doll or bear, the remainder of the balance can then be paid over a period of up to eight weeks.

Your doll or bear will not be posted until it has been paid for in full.

In the event of a layaway default by yourself, payments received to date excluding deposit will be returned and the doll or bear will be put back up for sale.

Layaways are non transferable.
