Q: I have a plastic doll that was bought -- probably in a Lee jeans store in Macon, Ga. -- around 1950. He is 14 inches tall and has movable arms. There is a label on his coveralls and hat with the words "Lee -- Union Made." On his back are the words "Buddy Lee" in plastic. What he is worth?

A: "The Antique Trader Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide" by Kyle Husfloen shows a "Buddy Lee" doll with jointed shoulders, painted and molded boots, painted side-glancing eyes and the original clothes at $75 in good condition.

Q: I have a porcelain teapot that is white trimmed in green and gold. On the bottom, it is marked with a star in a wreath and the words "R.S. Prussia." The height is 4 1/2 inches. Can you tell me something about it and what it is worth?

A: Your teapot was made by Erdmann Schlegelmilch in Suhl, Thuringia, Germany. The mark you describe was used circa 1900. Its value would probably be about $300 to $325 in good condition.
