I researched your question before I decided to answer.
There have been many versions of Marie produced by Royal Doulton.
Does yours look like the following image?
Is yours 4 7/8" tall?
If not please send a photo of yours along with the height.
To send photos you may use the "attach file" or "add file" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.
If another professional enters our exchanges, please feel free to tell them you are working with me, if you wish.
There is no record of how many of this particular pink version of the Royal Doulton Marie were produced although it is described as "rare" in the auction listings I found.
It was designed by Leslie Harradine.
See the following:
Your pink Marie was only produced from 1930-1949.
Its Royal Doulton figurine number is ***** (L?).
Its blue counterpart is HN1370 and, as you observed, much more common.
At auction, I found that your pink Marie has sold for as much as $114.
The estimated retail price probably would be $230-280 assuming good condition
and depending on sale location.
Insurance replacement values are usually about 10% more than retail values.
I hope I have helped you.
