De Fuisseaux Girl doll, 18"

Not much is known about the Belgium doll maker De Fuisseaux, also spelled  Finsseau, it is accepted however, that they began creating their stunning character art dolls around 1909 thru to 1913 when their Baudour factory was destroyed during World War I.  Dolls are bisque shoulder or socket heads with glass or painted intaglio eyes of various sizes, with cloth, composition and wood jointed bodies. 

 

Some markings are B3, B4, DFB, DF and F1, F2, F3 which was made for De Fuisseaux by the French firm of Fleischmann & Bloedel (or Blödel). Dolls are highly prized by collectors for both their rarity, artistic beauty and scarcity. 

 

DeFuisseaux was part of the European art doll movement near the end of World War I, which also included the French doll makers Albert Marque, J. Van Rosen and Marion Kaulitz Munich Art dolls and others.
