Nikki Britt Resin Dolls: A Complete Guide Part 3 (Tiny)

0

With special thanks to Shaira Creveling and Janice Scott for their collaboration

Dolls created by sculptor Nikki Britt have become one of the most coveted brands in today’s doll collecting community. As new collectors continue to discover her work, naturally, many questions arise about them. This guide is meant to answer many of those questions, with an explanation of her types of dolls, prices of her dolls, and of course, what everyone wants to know, how to get one of her precious creations.

In attempt to make this guide more digestible, I will break it into 3 parts: MSD size, YOSD size, and Tiny size.


Shaira's tinies: Eddie Moon, Luna the Mermaid, Olivia, Maggie, and Ellemeno


Nikki has released quite a few dolls in the tiny size (6 inches – 7 inches), in various resin tones. The first resin ball jointed dolls Nikki ever released were the Fauns. Many others have followed over the last couple of years, and I have tried to compile this table, with the help of Shaira, to contain relevant information for collectors. Because there have been so many tinies, I am not going to write about each one separately, and hope that this table will act as a guide to answer any questions you may have.

If you are wanting to add a Nikki Britt tiny to your collection, you shouldn't have too much difficulty obtaining one. The prices range from $350-$900, both through private sales and auctions. Prices do depend on whether you have a basic edition doll, artist edition doll, or OOAK. From what has been observed over the past year, you can expect to pay $400-$500 for a faun, in either an auction sale or a private sale. For any of the MDCC dolls, you can expect to pay anywhere from $500-$700 in a private sale. For Ellemeno or Ellabella, you can expect to pay anywhere from $600-$900. These dolls seem to be the most popular in the secondary market and therefore command the highest prices. Olivia dolls are currently selling for $350-$700, depending on whether you have a basic doll or an artist edition. 

Thank you for reading this guide to Nikki Britt's dolls. If you have any suggestions, or if you own any of the OOAK dolls and want your doll added to the known doll spreadsheet, please send me a message and let me know!
