look at these beautiful dolls originally manufactured by french company jouets petitcollin, a 19th century corset boning and comb manufacturer. dolls of that era were frequently made of porcelain or papier mache, materials prone to damage. when petit collin began using celluloid as a material for a variety of products, they tried making dolls, and quickly became one of the world’s most renowned doll manufacturers in the early 20th century. now a special collection has been selected and mounted on wood as a keepsake of times past.
i loathe the plastic rings around the close up photos so much i cannot even tell you, but despite this distraction, it sure is an intriguing addition to a collection.
$185 for the set at moss.
