Jeanne Van Rozen character boy bisque wigless head doll, 18" tall

Van Rozen character boy bisque wigless head doll, 18" tall

Jeanne Desboutin was a Belgian refugee who fled to Paris, France.  Van Rozen's character doll heads are made of a bisque like ceramic material and are marked as shown below 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 five piece body. 

 

The doll faces are very artistic, expressive, realistic, a rarity and are highly prized by deep pocketed collectors.  There is a similarity to De Fuisseaux art dolls, also of Belgium. 

 

Dolls were distributed by La Maison Bossier and La Maison Rouzaud.   Jeanne Desboutin, also made ceramic figurines 9 to 16" tall, dressed in French military uniforms, believed to also be signed.
