      SFBJ (Société Française de Fabrication de Bébés et Jouets; also referred to as S.F.B.J.) was the last of the great French dollmaking companies. Formed at the nadir of French dollmaking at the end of the 19th Century, SFBJ made dolls until the early 1960s. Quality of the dolls varied greatly, from exquisite character dolls in the early 1900s, to souvenier dolls of painted bisque, composition and plastic in the mid 20th Century.
      SFBj was formed in 1899 by the remnants of several legendary French dollmaking companies that were in financial difficulties due to severe competition from the German dollmaking firms. These companies included Jumeau (known as Jumeau et Cie by then), Bru, Rabery, Bebe de Paris, Gaultier, Pintel and Godschaux and others. In addition, the German doll distributor Salomon
      They may have removed the Jumeau mark as they no longer were the maker of head but it is possible she is a Jumeau mold but still has to called a SFBJ doll
      Very beautiful and what a wonderful gift wow !
