This cabinet sized doll was made in Belgium by the firm of DeFuisseaux during the period right before WWI and into the early war years. This particular model was a copy of the Gebr. Heubach mold.
He has been costumed as a little boy by a previous owner.
Marks: Incised F3
Condition: Head has no chips, cracks or repairs but does he a number of paint rubs, most notably on his cheek and the tip of the nose. There is also a small flake/chip at the top of his head. The 5 pc compo body is from a later date (late 20s, early 30s) but seems to suit him.
Because this doll is so rarely seen we can forgive him his flaws, especially at this price!
