all-bisque dolls
All-Bisque Dolls
Small dolls have one thing in common: The entire doll is of bisque. Most are German and
from the beginning of this century. Some are head-torso dolls, others one-piece dolls, dolls
with molded shoes and socks, dolls with molded clothes. Some have painted, others glass eyes.
Some have molded hair, others cut-off crown and wig. These are our newest all-bisque dolls
and old favorites-all delightfully detailed and fun to create.
Key: Complete = # Mold(s} for complete doll. If more than one mold is included, ST (for Set) is added to item number.
Head-torso doll: Head and torso are one piece. Shoulders and hips are jointed.
