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

  • Mary Scarlett Anderson

    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!

    Poor Pitiful Pearl is the doll only a true mommie can love. I loved her so much her body started to curve to fit the way I held her. She still sits in my room.
