17" Jumeau Triste.  Here is a wonderful doll that could be your Mary Frances doll.  She uses the FB14 body from Seeley that is such a perfect fit for the Mary Frances wardrobe (click on this link "Mary Frances Wardrobe" to see more about the Mary Frances wardrobe project).  The doll shown is a Jumeau Triste with gray-blue glass paperweight eyes and a blonde human hair wig.   $400

14" Schmitt---Shown above is a reproduction of an antique Schmitt doll.  Although the name sounds like a German dollmaker, Schmitt was a manufacturer of dolls in France.  This lovely reproduction has dark brown  paperweight eyes and a pale blonde skin wig.  She has eyeshadow over the eyes as the antique doll would have had.

Shown above is a 19" A.Marque reproduction (the antique doll came in one size only...about 22").  This doll has the thoughtful, pensive expression of the antique A.Marque head....what a face!  She has bright blue paperweight glass eyes.  Her body is not exactly like the unique body of the A.Marque antique doll, but she does have A.Marque bisque hands, and the long, slender feet of an antique A.Marque $375

Shown is a 24" Paris Bebe replica that uses the Seeley FB18 body, which has become difficult to find since Seeley/NYDP no longer manufactures them.  Her dark gray blue glass eyes are so expressive.  Her wig is dark blonde mohair.  She's waiting for the perfect French costume! FYI...I will not be making another one of these dolls.  $375

14" Portrait Jumeau.  The term "Portrait Jumeau" can be confusing as it's used for more than one Jumeau face.  There is the Portrait Jumeau that is often seen as a French Fashion doll, but there is the Portrait Jumeau that is often seen as the Premier bebe of Jumeau, with almond eyes.  Sometimes these Premier Jumeau antique dolls have large irregular eye cuts and painting that may be considered not as artistic as later Jumeau dolls.  The doll above is reproduction head taken from the Portrait bebe-type doll.  She is sometimes seen as a fashion doll, but more often as a child.  This sweet girl has gray glass paperweight eyes.  Her body is in the child-like proportions one would expect.  She wears a light blonde mohair Bravot wig.  $375

17" French Schmitt.  One more doll that uses the FB14 body which works so well with the Mary Frances Wardrobe (see above).  This doll is a reproduction of a Schmitt....a very rare antique French doll.  I've only made one reproduction Schmitt in the FB14 size and this is she.  I will not be making another.  She has dark blue-gray glass eyes and wears a brunette mohair wig.  She's about 17" tall.    $400
