So where can you find more information on what price they sell on ebay .
If you do an Advanced search tick the box Completed listings that will give you all the sold prices for the last 3 months,. Which may give you some clue as to what your Royal Doulton is worth.
2nd quality are not worth collecting they were sold in the Royal Doulton Shop at 75% discount to staff and visitors and should be used for display only not as an investment. the ones I have seen have lots of faults on them mainly paint not applied correctly.
What effects the price is presentation if you have a good photo of the back stamp plus front, rear, and head, you will increase your value.
Also is it in mint condition if so say so ------- "is in excellent condition with no chips,cracks,crazing marks or restoration"
Buyers generally dislike Reserve Price listings just put the lowest starting price you would except.
