29" Bru 14 Head on Ebay

29″ Bru 14 Head on Ebay

Good evening all, I hope you are having a great weekend! I wanted to let you all know I have listed a beautiful 29″ Bru 14 painted head with Hand English brown paperweight eyes on ebay tonight in a 5 day auction. Due to the size of this doll I have decided it would be much easier to sell her as a head only with eyes, then she can be wrapped really well for shipping. Someone may have already the FB230S composition body that she needs,and will be able to pop the head on and have an exquisite 29″ Bru 14 to dress. Even if you need to purchase the body, it is much easier and less expensive to safely ship the head and the body separately. Also, currently the body (FB230S) is on sale from me for 20% off the retail price. Regularly $198.00 on sale for $159.00. (All composition bodies are on sale until November 30th). Discounted prices will not register in shopping cart buttons you must email me for special pricing.

The 5 day auction listing consists of the painted head, Hand English paperweight eyes, and cork pate. The head is ready to attach to a body. The wig is not included in the listing but I do have it available in several colors. The hat she is shown in is also not included, it is only for decorative purposes so you can see how beautiful she will be once she is dressed. Here is a link to the ebay listing:

French Doll History

Good evening everyone! I hope you all have had a great weekend. Are you ready to sit down, relax with a cup of tea, and enjoy reading some French Doll History? About ten to fifteen years ago when my daughter worked for me, she compiled together some history of some of the more popular French Doll Companies. Many who make authentic antique reproductions like to study the history of the original antiques, after having enjoyed these pages on my old website for years, I decided to also move them onto this newer site. This will give you a brief summary of some of the wonderful old French doll makers such as Bru, Jumeau, Steiner, etc.

Just click on the link to the French history doll pages: French Dolls History
