Collecting tip of the day: 'Doll out the dosh' on this investment

Find a wax doll without surface crazing and you're on to a winner…

The scarcity of vintage wax dolls ensures such pieces are a viable alternative investment - the rarer they are, the more sought-after and valuable they are among buyers. 

What's more, the ill effects of temperature changes on wax make a doll without any cracks an even greater rarity - so make sure those are the dolls you look out for - but always consult an expert if you are unsure of an item's condition.
