Mr. Van Rosen was a Belgian refugee who fled to Paris, France. Van Rosen's
character doll heads are made of a bisque like ceramic material and are marked
as shown below; Van Rosen in a semi circle, France Depose, on a
composition and wood jointed body.
Doll faces are very artistic, expressive, realistic, a rarity and highly prized
by collectors. There is a similarity to
De Fuisseaux art dolls, also of Belgium. Dolls were distributed by La
Maison Bossier and La Maison Rouzaud. Van Rosen also made ceramic
figurines 9 to 16" tall, dressed in French military uniforms.
