SFBJ Dolls - In 1899 the following French doll makers formed or joined an alliance named SFBJ; Adolphe Bouchet, Bru Jne et Cie, Falck-Roussel No. 31, Fleischmann & Bloedel (or Blödel), François Gaultier, A. Benoit Gobert, Jumeau, May Fréres No.15, Pintel & Godchaux, Rabery & Delphieu (Genty), Frédéric Remignard, Arthur Wertheimer and probably Henry Ulhenhuth & Cie. 


Later P. H. Schmitz, Danel & Cie (as part of Jumeau) and Jullian joined, around 1925 SFBJ handled the dolls of Béatrice Mallet and Jean Ray.


Each of these doll makers continued to make their same brand of dolls under the umbrella name of SFBJ, who is probably best known for their Bluette dolls.


The SFBJ trademark was registered in 1905
