 1882-1889 Halopeau Bébé doll, H Mold,

antique bisque head, French doll 23 1/2" tall

Aristride Marcelling Halopeau purchased the Eugene Barrois doll company in 1875, by 1882 he introduced the H mold Bébé doll until January 1889 when the company went out of business.  The H mold dolls are rare and highly sought by collectors with deep pockets.  For the rest of us, we'll probably be content to find a reproduction doll by an artist.
