Customer Question
I would appreciate any...

I would appreciate any information you can give me on this doll. she has a bisc head & composition body. She is in very excellent condition. Markings on her head are S.F.B.J. 230 Paris. She's approximately 21 " tall. Her eyes are blue appear to be glass. She has an open mouth with 3 teeth showing. Movable legs & arms. I don't know if it's a boy or girl.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I have images,but don't know how to send them.
