Jullien dolls, made in Paris from 1863 to 1904, are not plentiful. These dolls are nice to have to complete a French collection, but they do not have a face that you will love at first sight.
The Jullien body was made of hollow wood and advertised as being the most solid, lightest body for a doll. Dolls were well made with wood hands that had thin, separated fingers. All Jullien dolls are marked with the name Jullien on the neck, along with a size number. Some later ones had walking mechanisms, talking mechanisms, and sleep eyes.
