character doll heads are made of a bisque like ceramic material and are marked
as shown with raised lettering; Van Rozen in a semi circle with arrow head symbols
and a circle or dot between and France Depose below Dolls have a composition and wood ball jointed body.
The doll faces are very artistic, expressive, realistic, a rarity and are highly prized
by collectors. There is a similarity to
De Fuisseaux art dolls, also of Belgium. Dolls were distributed by La
Maison Bossier and La Maison Rouzaud. Desboutin who signed her dolls Van Rozen, also made ceramic
figurines 9 to 16" tall, dressed in French military uniforms.
