Bisque also called "biscuit" is an unglazed, porcelain that was used from the early 1800's. Bisque dolls are made using clay that has been fired multiple times. The tints and painting of the features are applied before the final firing. The result is a delicate skinlike appearance, wonderfully lifelike in contrast to the glazed china dolls. Because of their fragility, bisque dolls were well looked after and many have survived the journey of time. They are among the most beautiful and valuable of dolls.
