Item Description: Translate description
18" (46 cm.) Bisque shoulderhead with very plump face and defined double chin, textured complexion, cobalt blue glass inset eyes with heavily-modeled eyelids, delicately-painted lashes and brows, accented nostrils and eye corners, closed mouth modeled as though open with parted lips revealing two rows of tiny sculpted teeth, unpierced ears, blonde mohair wig over cork pate, plump kid poupee body with gusset jointing at hips and knees, bisque arms to above the elbows, lovely antique dress, undergarments, woven bonnet with arrangements of flowers, stockings, ivory satin shoes marked C.C. Condition: generally excellent, few original kiln specks on face. Comments: French, circa 1860, the maker of this very rare early period poupee is indefinite; a near duplicate model with painted eyes was featured on the cover of Doll News in Spring 1997 and also on the cover of Lady Dolls of the 19th Century by Florence Theriault, with possible attributions to Adelaide Huret or Georges Most who registered a French design in 1860 for sculpted teeth in dolls (see Encyclopedia of French Dolls by Theimer, page 419). Value Points: extremely rare doll with exceptional sculpting around the eyes, exquisitely-detailed teeth, rare early body with bisque arms, lovely original costume.
