Halopeau purchased the Eugene Barrois doll
company in 1877, by 1882 he introduced the H mold Bébé doll
1899 when the
company went out of business.
The H mold dolls are rare and highly
sought by collectors with deep pockets. For the rest of us, we'll
probably be content to find a reproduction doll made by an artist.
