    Poor Pitiful Pearl doll, a gift from Santa with I was young, and she then came with a pretty party dress so she could dress up. I felt so sorry for this doll, and I loved her!

    Does anyone know what these dolls are worth now? I have 3 of them from my mother.

    I really thought she was pitiful and ugly even when she was cleaned up. I saw her as a very unfortunate child. It was a very sad doll to me and I was shocked that my grand mother had given her to me.

    The original "poor" dress was ski blue calico with a red calico patch on the front. The "party dress" was a blue organza-like material. Pearl is still so special!
