I found this beautiful doll head, appears to be Dionne quint of 1935 origin, head/neck area marked DIONNE; very red cheeks reminiscent of german, features finely painted and also german-esque lips, no other marks I see. Not a typical flange neck; open neck hole without neck. Who made it? Coming up dry on net; mention vaguely of "other makers" and "bisque" dionnes existing, but all is about madam alexander only after 4 days research and no sites tell WHO other companies might be. Do know Armand Marseille dolls may have still been made 1935. 2 3/4" high for this head. Original body likely composition &/or cloth/leather as appears to have passed on. (what size body to buy for this head?) Bought it solely for its beauty and would like to restore it, but now interested after noticing name Dionne and associated quint dolls pertaining same.
