22 Antique French Bisque Bebe Doll By Francois Gaultier Size 9 FG in Scroll
This 22 Scroll FG must have been one of the earlier ones as she is as pretty as a Block letter. She has her original cork pate, pierced ears, big blue paperweight eyes, dark stacked eyebrowns, lovely blushing and two-tone eye, nose and lip color. Her original French composition body has lots of wear on the hands, chips on the feet and stripes in the paint on her arms, but body is sturdy and well-strung. She wears a newly made from vintage fabric and trims low-waisted dress of aqua wool challis that opens up the back and fastens with snaps. It has lots of pretty lace and vintage buttons. Underneath is a chemisette and pantaloons. I'll include a half slip that is too big around the waist but came with her. Shoes are antique and marked with 8, but bows and buttons have been replaced. Her old socks might be original, they have some holes but look fine. There is a half-inch pink scratch in the bisque on her forehead done in the making, and some little white spots where the paint missed, also on her forehead. There is also a mark to the left of center which looks to me like the glue drip on the inside shows through. If it is a short hairline it is so faint as to not be seen at all, but I have priced her lower because of it. I bought her as perfect from Theriaults many years ago.
I believe her new owner will be delighted. The item "22 Antique French Bisque Bebe Doll By Francois Gaultier Size 9 FG in Scroll" is in sale since Sunday, September 26, 2021. The seller is "auntpatsyscottage" and is located in Saint Charles, Missouri. This item can be shipped to United States.
