Why do they call a doll all-bisque? The quick answer is because earlier, generally larger, dolls had bisque heads but bodies made of leather, cloth, wood, or papier mache. But as early as the 1860s, German doll makers offered small dolls, 2 inches to 12 or 15 inches, made entirely of unglazed, tinted porcelain. Many of these all-bisque dolls depicted babies, toddlers, and young children deliberately made to look especially adorable with big eyes and beguiling expressions.
