Information found in Karen Vaughn's article referenced above:
French Fashion dolls were produced from the 1850's to the 20th century.
These display shapely, type figured dolls were used to display glamorous Parisian costumes.
The F. Gaultier Fashion doll
was often marked with F.G. on the back of the head.
They were found on gusseted kid bodies, wooden bodies, leather bodies, and cloth bodies.
Most have glass eyes and pierced ears.

If Antique Dolls are requested in painted
They will be painted as we want to, but not as a reproduction order,
The doll is our "Interpretation" Painted Bisque.
Others paint and then post pictures for
sale but almost without fail they say ...
Interpretation and that lets them off the hook,
so they can paint it their way with no repercussions from a potential buyer.
