Q: My grandmother gave me this doll many years ago. I recently ran across the doll when cleaning out a closet. She is in her original box, although the box is a little worse for wear. The doll, however, is in very good condition. Can you tell me more about her and what she is worth?

A: The tag on your doll's dress indicates it was made at Lidová tvorba Uherský Brod, a co-op established in Czechoslovakia in 1936. The town of Uherský Brod is now located in the Czech Republic. The name "Lidová tvorba" roughly translates as "the people's creation." The company is still in business. Its dolls are handmade and dressed in traditional Moravian-Slovak folk costumes. The trademark on your doll's dress tag was first used in 1952. You can check out the company's current collection of dolls . Value of your doll: about $50.
