Powder Box Doll from my personal collection.
Accepting Best offer
This is a very rare Terre de Retz French Powder Jar.
Sold by the Galeries Lafayette department store in Paris, France.
It is made of papier mache. c 1920's
This was made during the Art Deco time comes from Paris France and is not a reproduction.
Very good condition, 98% of her paint intact.
Does not look new and shows patina mostly
on the arms. Maybe a little rub mark on the mask over one eye. not noticeable unless looking for it.
She is a beauty...and sure to be the center of your
doll collection too.
I want to point out that most of these dolls ....if you can find one,, are usually not in very good condition because they are made of papier mache.
This doll is strong and sturdy. See my other fine vintage and antique vanity items.
Terre de retz French Dolls are shown in the Book Masterpieces of the Perfume Industry
