François Gaultier

20" (26 1/2" overall) François Gaultier fashion - she absolutely will be the life of the party at the costume ball, due to her spot on impersonation of Marie Antoinette.
Fine details include a perfect bisque swivel head on a perfect bisque plate, very nice coloring, rarer to find brown paperweight eyes, pierced ears and a masterpiece of a mohair wig styled in the 18th C. French manner, and decorated with silken ribbon, beaded components and a plume for good measure.
On a classic leather body that is fitted with bisque forearms (very nice repairs to fingers on the left hand), she wears a beyond luxurious dress in luscious pink silk brocade, masterfully decorated with copious amounts of gold bullion and featuring hand-beaded panels, with rich lace and silk ribbons.









François Gaultier

Stunning, in a superb promenade ensemble, is a fabulous, classic François Gaultier who stands sixteen and one-half inches tall. With a pretty and perfect bisque head, further details include blue spiral threaded paperweight eyes in large eyecuts, gorgeous coloring, a sweet mohair wig in a beautiful color and style, and pierced ears.
On a leather body that remains in good condition, this doll is exquisitely costumed in floral-printed light wool, with lace and silk fringe accents.
A coordinating wool felt chapeau and antique shoes help make this a very sweet package.

Thank you, P.








François Gaultier
On a Gesland Body

Gorgeous, in a monochromatic palette, is a classic François Gaultier fashion who stands eighteen and one-half inches tall. Further details include a perfect bisque head and shoulderplate, exquisite coloring and painting, stunning pale blue paperweight eyes in large eyecuts that lend an innocent look, her gorgeous original wig worn in soft curls, plus pierced ears.
On a desirable patented Gesland body with very graceful, perfect bisque hands and bare feet, it not only remains in good condition, but allows a multitude of posing possibilities.
Madame wears a magnificent and entirely original bridal ensemble of exquisite cream satin (tender in places) that features delicate lace and silk ribbon accents.
This magnificent example is worthy of her very own salon.









Mademoiselle Amie
A China Huret with her Original Deluxe Trunk and Trousseau

A dreamy vision, Mademoiselle Amie represents an original china Huret Poupee, circa 1850s. A first generation doll from the illustrious firm, this type of package is a must-have for the advanced collector of early dolls and fashion examples, alike.
This perfect seventeen-inch china shoulderhead model was given a very lovely expression by the artist who painted her so many years ago. From the soft blues of her eyes, to the soft blush on her cheeks, she is a very special example. Lending a youthful air is her natural curly lamb wig that. (Note that remnants of her original astrakhan wig is underneath, still attached to the original cork pate.)
On her original, sturdy, fully-articulated, gutta percha body, it is a patented Huret product - and one which remains in good condition overall, and is complete with the stamped HURET leather collarette.

The greatest aspect of this doll is the fact that she retains an original, boutique-made trousseau, with several pieces bearing the Huret stamp, including the shoes and the russet, plaid ensemble. The dresses exhibit the finest taste in trimmings and workmanship, including the fabulous cream and pink silk dress that Amie is shown wearing above. The materials chosen are top-notch, and you will enjoy changing her clothes to make the most of this gorgeous assemblage. Assorted accessories include hats, parasols, jewelry, games and books, plus outstanding whites.
Please study the photos below carefully, to discover all that Mlle. Amie has to offer, including a trunk that bears several compartments that include drawers, even a fold-down storage area for her - not that you would ever want to hide her away!
A beautiful doll from Maison Huret, on a rare to find body, combined with a glorious trousseau – who could ask for more?

Thank you, P.

Since we all know time flies, you will have your doll at home in your arms in no time at all!
