VERY RARE ANTIQUE FRENCH

'BISQUE - CARTON BODY' DOLL

I SHIP WORLDWIDE.

I am a UFDC and a NADDA member.

This doll is from a smoke free home and has no odors.

What a great find. For the advanced collector. This doll is 17 inches tall. He is all original, except for the felt hat. He has a bisque head and "carton" body. The name "carton" was used in France before the use of the name "papier-mache". (For reference see page #220 in The Collector's Encyclopedia of Dolls, Volume Two by the Coleman's.) I believe that this doll is a French soldier; see the painting of the costume/body. He has a repair to two fingers on his left hand. He has a makers mark on the back of his head that I cannot make out. He has a small crack on the top of his left ear. There is also a chip on the crown in the back of his head that has been glued back in place. I think this is his original wig but it is thin in places. The pate looks very old. He has large fixed blue glass eyes. Check out the teeth; there are six teeth on the top and six teeth on the bottom. I wish I knew more about this doll but I do not. In fact, so few exist, not much is known. A wonderful addition to any doll collection. From my home to yours.
