Petite bisque-head dolls hold a special place in my heart, so it was a struggle to decide to give these two up for my customers! This pair of all-original French dollies are just the cutest, sure to look adorable in any display cabinet. I have cabinets full of petite dolls like these, set up with furniture and enacting little scenes. The possibilities are endless with these types of cuties. All-original and in excellent condition, they are sure to please any collector of little display dolls, all-bisques, or French dolls. The costumes are lovely, and the original wigs are good and intact, and are removable from the heads so you can closely inspect the bisque. They are just fabulous! Snatch these two up now!
***NOTE, these dolls were originally incorrectly described as "all-bisque"; they are in fact bisque heads on composition bodies.***

First we have our little bisque-head boy, standing at 5.25" tall. He has painted blue eyes, with tapered brows and nice, precise painting of his features, with a delicate closed mouth with pink lips. Slightly pink blush to the bisque head. Painted composition body. He is adorned in his original antique costume, sewn-on: a brown felt jacket with cream trim, and a cream shirt underneath, with a cummerbund, and matching trousers, with stockings and painted brown shoes. He wears his original wig with attached pate, glued to the bottom of his wide-brimmed hat.
His lovely other half lady is just as sweet, standing a little smaller at 5", with the same painted blue eyes and features. She wears a dark brown cotton antique dress, all original as well, with cream cotton shoulders and decoration down the front with ribbon ties and lace trim. Brown painted shoes. She has her original wig as well, with a lace bonnet glued atop.
Marks: PARIS UNIS 301
Condition: Excellent! Each doll is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration to the bisque heads, with lovely modeling and particularly-nice painting of features. Truly expert work. The boy's bisque head rim is a little rougher than the girl's, with some ruggedness. The costumes are great and all intact, and have great presentation. The wigs are great too, holding well to the interior of the hats, and fit well on top of the heads.
