I SELL ONLY WITHIN THE U. Im offering today a very RARE SNF Societe Nobel Francaise French Doll.This doll is another one of my dolls I hate to part with. I don't think I'll ever find another one. I will start at the top and work my way down so I don't miss anything. First of all, the doll is all celluloid with jointed neck, arms and legs.
The wig she as wearing was very tattered, so I upgraded to a vintage curly blonde mohair wig which is parted in the center. I chose a pale blue ribbon bow with elastic hair band to go in the center of the part. This wig is from my personal collection from the 1980's and is what they call old/new stock. It has never been used.She has delicate single line eyebrows which flow down to her sky blue blown glass stationary eyes. She has human hair eyelashes which I applied ever so carefully. Her eyes were pretty, but I felt she needed real eyelashes; just like we have. Her nose if very dainty which accents her dark pink closed lips.
Her cheeks have lots of pink in them to highlight her adorable face. Of course, true celluloid has a dark pinkish/orange color so the highlights must be a bit more dark for accenting. I have chosen a cute outfit for her debut.She is wearing a dainty pale yellow sweater with pale blue bow decorating the center of the sweater which compliments her blue polka dot pants. She has a pale blue tutu skirt with complimentary pale yellow gathered edge. It stands out very full just allowing her blue/white polka dot pants to peek through.
The pants have dainty yellow satin ribbons on bottom side of pants. She wears pale yellow socks with delicate lace and vintage yellow mary jane shoes from my personal collection from the 1980's era. The shoes are new and never been worn. She will come with her very own powder blue bunny with blue silk bow around his neck.
This is a nice size celluloid doll which is most difficult to find in this condition. She has been well cared for and I can't tell you how much joy she has brought me over the years of caring for her. The back of her head is hallmarked: "SNF" which stands for Societe Nobel Francaise.Her body is also hallmarked: "SNF". She has been in my collection for many years and over the course of years I clean my dolls and try to avoid them from ageing by doing so. They are not played with by children who come and visit; I know that sounds mean, but sometimes they play too rough. My dolls are kept in a doll room specifically for them and are displayed for everyone to enjoy. All my dolls are truly loved and cared for as though they were my children. Their clothes are either original to the doll, made by me, I've tried finding doll clothing from the same era as the doll or find clothing which match the personality of the doll. We do not smoke and I try very hard to keep a tidy clean home free of dust and odor. Depending on how old they are, I do try to be honest in detailing if some of the dolls have bruises, missing toes or fingers or other issues, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth having; for each one is like children..... They are all beautiful in their mothers eyes.
If I've missed something it would never be intentional. This is a larger doll measuring approximately 19-1/2" to 20". Her little bunny rabbit stands approximately 5 tall. She is a Vintage doll and I'm sure has minor played with marks, but nothing in my opinion substantial. Her previous little mommies was gentle with her and she is free of chips, cracks or breaks.Her eyes are stationary and has new human hair eyelashes.
