Above is an ethnic Huret doll.  This doll is still available.  It's so hard to get a good photograph of her...I think she looks so much prettier in person.  The doll shown has earrings and the Huret body with unjointed wrists.  Her leather collarette perfectly matches her skin color.

#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!
