I have two small white coffee mugs/tea cups that due to the size I imagine are children's mugs/cups. Inside each cup is a brown ceramic teddy bear figurine. Both mugs contain gold oval labels on the bottom reading the following "Copyright Geo. Borgfeldt Corp. New York N.Y. 10003 Made in Japan." I have not been able to find similar mugs elsewhere no corresponding value. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry, I have no idea...

I have a Mickey and Minnie Mouse wooden dols with leather ears. Tails are missing. They are 5 inches tall. They are from the 1930's. What are they worth?
Have a look here, maybe you can find yours with some prices: Borgfeldt Mickey.

Borgfeldt & Co made dolls called Little Bright Eyes and Jolly Kids. Are you aware of them?

This dish was donated to our local charitable thrift shop and has the Geo. Borgfeldt circle & crown backstamp. Are there any collectors that may be interested in such a dish?
Not only particularly Borfeldt collectors, but certainly collectors or people who love these vintage dishes. Not sure how to value it though, sorry.

Difficult to find Borgfeldt Mickey toys. You can visit this page, Borgfeldt Mickey to see if you can find yours or similar toys. If not, come back now and then to see if one was sold on eBay.

There is one for sale right now on eBay, that is if you have a Mighty Midget COLLECT-A-TANK. It has a buy it now of 40 USD. I guess eBay is your friend here.
