Henri Delcroix


Illustration 10 – PAN

His name might not sound familiar to you. One of the reasons could be that he did not join with the SFBJ. Henri Delcroix made dolls between 1865 and 1887 in Paris and among other cities in France. There are many marks attributed to Delcroix: “GD Paris”, “Paris HD”, and “Paris PAN”. Henri Delcroix registered the trademark “PAN” in 1887.

These dolls can be identified at a glance by their large round eyes. They are of the type that once you have passed by, you do a double take.
