FRANCOIS GAULTIER AUTOMATON DOLL FRENCH BISQUE BLUE SET EYES SILK FG ANTIQUE

Wistful, antique French bisque head automaton doll with original Pierette costume, circa 1890

Bought over 25 years ago under a glass dome, has been under the dome ever since.

Her costume of pale green satin set over a longer net skirt with matching satin underskirt and satin Pantaloon's beneath, dressed with lace and gold braid trim.Knitted stockings and simple satin slippers.Her segmented dress appears all present but would benefit from a few stitches. The satin a little 'shot' in places with small spotting, net skirt now light brown, the lower white lace collar might not be original.

The bisque head with pale complexion, striking protruding fixed blue eyes, well painted brows and lashes, open mouth with delicate upper teeth, blond mohair wig. Marked on the neck in a cartouche FG for Francois Gaultier. No damage and no restoration to her bisque head.

Red velvet covered base box with original printed paper label, the base can be pulled off to see the movement which winds fully and plays well.

A fairly basic automaton motion, her head turns from side to side raising while lowering her right arm, wire attachment rings in each hand, perhaps she held a fan or played a musical instrument. Bisque hands with no restoration or damage. Fine as she is but could be improved with a bit of work and a better accessory ( rather than two brass bells.)

A charming and remarkable original survivor.

Total Height 18" or 460mm weight 520 grams.

Guaranteed old and original.
