Presenting.....Extremely Rare French Bebe Reproduction porcelain doll, marked 5 H

This extraordinary beauty remained a mystery for many years. But in 1989 The French doll Expert Francoise Theimer unveiled her history. Her creator was Aristiede Marcellin Halopeau. The Halopeau heads were introduced in the year 1882 and manufactured by the Frayon firm of Montreuil. These dolls were only produced until 1889 therefore very few of the Antique dolls can be found today.

This very hard to find size is a Seeley mold reduced size from their famous 5H Halopeau doll…. The Antique doll now belongs to Rosalie Whyel.

This head was poured in finest Lady White porcelain with many layers of China paint applied meticulously with up to 6 firings in between
