21" K*R 114 "Gretchen".  I loved how this doll turned out so much that I kept her for myself for many years.  I'm ready to let her belong to someone new now.  She has teal blue painted eyes and nicely-blushed cheeks.  Her wig is a brown mohair.  She wears cotton drawers and petticoat (nothing fancy so no photo provided).  She is dressed in a floral dirdnl skirt, white lace-trimmed blouse, laced green cotton vest and white eyelet apron.  She also has long brown cotton socks and black leather shoes.  She is ready to put on your shelf!  SOLD

19" A.Marque--Shown above are two 19" A.Marque reproduction dolls.  They both have the thoughtful, pensive expression of the antique A.Marque head.  One doll has bright blue paperweight eyes, while the other doll has blue-gray paperweight eyes.  Both wigs are blonde human hair.  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    SOLD

23" Block FG (Gaultier).  The antique Block FG is an early FG marked with "FG" in block letters at the back of the bisque head, as opposed to the fancier scroll letters of the later FG bebes.  This lovely reproduction is copied after the earlier Block FG doll.  She has incredible blue Hand paperweight eyes.  Her body is a reproduction of an early French body, with loose ball joints at the shoulder, elbow, hips and knees, with unjointed wrists.  She is wearing an ecru silk dupioni dress, trimmed with silk at the hem and bodice.  Her underwear is cotton and lace-trimmed.  Her lightly wired hat is made from dupioni to match the dress, and is trimmed with ribbons and flowers.   SOLD
