Shown above is the newest Huret!  This doll is the same as the other 15" Hurets using the Dollspart body, but Dollspart has had a limited number of bodies produced in this wonderful warm brown tone to make an ethnic version of the Huret.  Although there were no antique Hurets made as an ethnic, dark-skinned doll, this modern update using antique molds is just stunning.  I was thrilled to make the first doll using this lovely body!  She's shown in the photos above.  The skin color is a nice warm brown but just FYI...my camera (and your monitor) may make the skin tone look redder in the photo than it is in person.  I have finished my first set of ethnic Hurets for some very lucky customers.  If you're interested in one of these ethnic dolls, or the pink-toned Huret, please contact me for availability dates and pricing via the email address, suzannesdolls@aol.com.

#4--8" Smiling Bru French Fashion on small Seeley multi-jointed body.  Although this doll is not all-bisque, she is certainly a small one!  I made only a few of these adorably small French Fashion ladies.  This doll has dark blue paperweight eyes, earrings in her pierced ears and a blonde mohair wig with a braid at the back.  She comes wearing her mesh stockings and black heeled slippers, as well as her superbly made multi-piece underwear.  Many of these 8" French Fashions made by doll artists did not have the bisque shoulderplate which was rather difficult to produce, but I was able to make a perfectly fitting shoulderplate for this doll!   She's so special....I will not be making any more of these.

The dolll is shown in the second row of photos dressed in a lovely blue taffeta silk dress.  It is trimmed with ecru ribbon and lace, as well as small flowers.  The dress is in two pieces....a skirt with train and a tight-fitting bodice with short lace-trimmed sleeves.   This is a really gorgeous outfit that the photos do not do justice to!  

She's sold now.....I will not be making another......so sorry!

For those of you who have Susan Sirkis's DVD, "A La Mode Enfantine" that showcases Huret and Rohmer fashions from the 1860s and 1870s, you will have seen her beautiful Rohmer reproduction doll, Helene, by Shirley Antoon.  Below is a similar Rohmer reproduction doll I have made.  She has a leather body that will wear the clothes on Susan's DVD.  She may also be able to wear many of the Gildebrief patterns for the 16" French Fashion.  The doll is about 16" tall with pierced ears and earrings.  She has painted blue eyes and wears a lovely mohair wig.  $350  SOLD
