Armand Marseille was born in Russia but founded a factory in Thuringa, Germany which began production of dolls in 1885 and continued through to the 1930s. Marseille's dolls were made of bisque, a type of porcelain that was popular for doll-making in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The dolls were known for their quality and attention to detail, and were produced in a wide range of sizes and styles to suit different tastes and budgets.
