These superb, antique French Ravca doll heads have outstanding character expression. They also have great history and collector value since they once belonged to Bernard and Frances Ravca!

Each measures approximately 2-1/4" (not including attached wires) and is all original. Their stockinette faces are in excellent condition. Their features were needle sculpted, and their eyes, mouths, brows, and cheeks beautifully hand painted. They retain their sewn on fabric labels, hand signed "France", which dates the doll heads to 1924-1939. (Bernard Ravca relocated his Paris-based operations to New York following an exhibit of his famous dolls at the 1939 NY World's Fair.)

Ravca dolls have been described as works of art. An article in the July, 2004 issue of Antique Doll Collector honors Ravca's dolls, describing them as representing the highest art of the doll maker for their exquisite faces that seem to tell a story. So true - just look at this couple.

Genuine, valuable, appealing, and in rarely found as made condition, these Bernard Ravca creations have it all. No wonder the Ravcas held on to them as part of their personal collection!
