Q: We have a Marx metal dollhouse purchased in 1956 still in its original, unopened carton. Please tell us what it’s worth today.

A: Louis Marx and Co. was founded in New York City in 1919 and closed in 1978. In the early 1950s, it was the largest toy company in the world. Marx introduced its first metal dollhouses in 1949 and continued to sell a variety of dollhouses into the 1970s. Most sets included plastic furniture and dollhouse-size plastic dolls. The value of your unopened dollhouse set depends on the house’s design and size. It could sell for $200 to $350. (A furnished house that has been played with would sell for only about $25 to $50.)
