This firm was the successor of André Thuillier and has made only open mouth dolls with typical bodies. Another particularity was the fact that the mark is always difficult to see. Here is a Bebe with the mark V 11 G. The height is about 24 1/2 in (62 cm). The bisque is in perfect condition : no hairline, no crack or restoration.
The body is in paper mache and wood : good used condition (painting touch on the fingers and on the feet). Everything is antique : 3 underwears, socks, leather shoes, dress, mohair wig, purse. The dress is not perfect : there are some spots and there was originally a larger ribbon as belt. This doll has an open mouth and blue enamel inset eyes (paperweight).
You can see on the last pictures some flaw factory on the upper part of the head and on the right side. There is also 2 minor flaw factory in the eyebrows. This doll is very interesting and quite difficult to find. The painting of the lips is quite similar to the painting of the AT dolls.
For this doll, a layaway until 12 months is available. Feel free to ask me any question. The item "Bebe Thuillier size 11.
