Up for sale is a lovely Société Française de Fabrication de Bébé & Jouets bisque head mechanical walker doll measuring 21 1/2" high. She is marked SFBJ 301 Paris -8-. She has strings in her back and when you pull them it makes her arms move. If you move her legs, her head turns to the side. The eyes do not sleep but I think they move side to side, although her insides may need a spot of oil to make the flirty eyes work more freely because I think when her head turns her eyes should go to the side as well but I'm not sure. She is like a manually operated automaton. The composition body does show wear from age and appears to have old repainting. The head is in great shape with no damage. I do not believe the wig is original - it is attached by tape around the top of her head so the new owner could easily change the wig out if desired.
Please ask me any question - I am not a doll expert, but I have bought a few over the years, so I know a little bit and hopefully can help.
