Emily Hart Heirlooms Presenting:
French Bébé Antique Reproduction doll.

One of the most distinctive models of French Antique dolls, this little charmer features a dainty look with fine features and pointy chin, originally made in the late 1800's, this face was unmarked and it is not known who the maker was.

This doll was painted in 2011, but not dressed or offered for sale until April 2022.
I made this particular doll for myself and that is why she wears the most exquisite genuine pearl jewelry.

Poured in Magnolia White porcelain and with many layers of China paint meticulously applied and firings in between each layer
She features lovely pale skin tone and eye shadow.
This doll is exquisitely painted!

Everything about this doll is unique and the best…

She wears earrings and matching necklace of Genuine Freshwater pearls with metallic copper seed beads, made to compliment this costume.

This head features very finest solid glass French paperweight eyes in the very hard to find gorgeous “Maroon Brown” color from G. Shoepher.

She features a fine mohair wig in deep auburn brown color with center part, bangs and soft curls.

Extra fine Painting, this is simply the best one of this doll Emily has made to date.

Her body is an authentic composition French body by Joyce’s Compo bodies, the ultimate in fine quality painted with latex paint. This head needs a body with narrow neck opening, and this is the only one I have that fits her.

This fabulous costume is a ONE OF A KIND, pure silk crepe dress in soft apricot color with extra fullness at the skirt back, and embellished with Genuine Antique laces. This is a Mary Lambeth costume that has had some alterations by Emily Hart. Gorgeous bonnet is original by Mary Lambeth. I added all the exquisite Antique laces to the dress.

Undergarments are bloomers and half-slip in cotton, with lace trim.

Hand knitted silk/rayon socks and fabric shoes in the French style matching her dress made of the same silk, complete this lovely doll.

She stands 17.25 inches (44 cm) tall, and 19.5 inches (49.5 cm) including the bonnet.
