Here is a Marotte, an antique bisque doll head in original costume on a turned wooden stick with a shiny plastic cap on its end that looks like a stone.
The bisque head is unmarked; I presume it is a salvaged piece from a broken antique doll. The head is delicately hand painted and has a blue bow in the blond moulded hair. The bisque head is attached to a cylindrical shaped carton, containing no musical mechanism as would be usual.
Our antique Marotte doll has her original costume, consisting of layers of tulle lace, decorated with bells. Without any doubt the head is antique, the rest of the construction is most certainly vintage, but maybe not about 100 years old as the head. For the photographs I had the Marotte standing on a flask.

The old musical jester doll is 20 cm / 8 inches long, the corpus + head measure 11 cm / 4 ½ inches. A fine plaything for your antique dolls!

Please, be aware that this listing is for the antique Marotte ONLY! All other items you see in the photographs will NOT come with the antique doll Marotte!
