The French bisque dolls named Bebe Phenix was a trademark first used by Henri Alexandre from 1889 to 1891 when he sold his business to Tourrel. The name remained unregistered until 1893, when Tourrell sold to Marie Lafosse, successor to Jules Steiner. Encyclopedia of French Dolls, Francois Theimer.
This 18 "doll has a Phénix Star *90 pressed bisque head with open mouth, four teeth, blue paperweight set eyes, upper and lower painted eyelashes, and finely featured eyebrows. She has a curly blond mohair wig over the original fitted pate. The composition body is in the 1890s Steiner style which proves her attribution as a Steiner product. The Alexandre Bebe Phenix is found on a different style body with the head marked HA over a bird symbol.

Bebe Phenix is costumed in a dress of antique lace over blue silk, white cotton undies, net socks and antique leather shoes. A marvelous bonnet of silk (melting and fragile) frames her face with high pleated brim.

No damage and no repair clean from a non-smoking environment.
