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.

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  $375 each

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.  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 has the child-like proportions one would expect.  She wears a light blonde mohair Bravot wig.  $275 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.   $350--undressed doll.  $425--dressed doll.
