11" Antique Reproduction Dolls
The 11" Millette size dolls are my favorites. Most of these dolls were made by Damaris Alves, Beth Golding and Suzanne McBrayer. The heads are porcelain on a Janice Naibert (JN) 11" wooden body.
Simon & Halbig
Reproduction of an S&H German antique doll made by Suzanne McBrayer. Her sailor suit was made by Anna Milster.
This is a classic French A.T. from Seeley's Silver mold, incised A3T. She has green paperweight eyes and a soft antique auburn English mohair wig. She was made by Damaris Alves.
French A. Marque
This darling French A. Marque was made by Damaris Alves. She has blue threaded paperweight glass eyes, and is wearing a red English mohair wig with spiral curls. The A.Marque doll is known for her sweet (almost sad) wistful look and the artist's painting lends itself to an accurate depiction of this doll.
Francois Gaultier (FG)
This FG is a antique reproduction of a classic French Bebe called F.G. with her distinguished sweet full face. The young French Bebe was originally produced by Francois Gaultier in the late 1800's. She has beautiful brown paperweight eyes and is on a JN jointed body. She was made by Damaris Alves.
Circle.Dot Bru Jne
Another lovely repro by the talented artist Damaris Alves. This beautiful little doll has blue threaded paperweight glass eyes, pierced ears and a wonderful long blonde English mohair wig with curls.
Bru Jne 4
This 13" reproduction was also made by Damaris Alves and is on the JN body. The #4 mold is soft and wistfull and is very desirable. Bru was originally made by Leon Casimir Bru in the late 1800's. She has blue threaded paperweight glass eyes and a blonde English mohair wig. She also has pierced ears and is wearing pearl earrings. Her outfit was made by Fran Cappetta (Jazzyrags).
This beautiful "Momo" Sakura reproduction antique doll was made by doll artist Madelyn Baughman. She is on the JN wooden body. The Momo dolls were done in the early 1900's and sold as the Japanese version of Bleuette dolls. Momo is meant to be a young Japanese child with a face of wide eyed innocence. They were called "Sakura Doll" after the cherry blossom flowers of Japan. She is wearing an oriental print flowered kimono with matching coulette and Obo Band sash with silk braided cord tie. She is painted as the original dolls were.
