|Francois Gaultier -1860-99- produced porcelain doll heads and parts for lady dolls and bebes. These parts were sold to the leading doll manufacturers, including Jumeau. In 1872 he obtained a patent for cutting out and inserting glass eyes in bisque doll heads.
He was born Francois Gauthier but a case of mistaken identity caused him to change his name to Gaultier.
