Florence Theriault's gorgeous book detailing the world of the French fashion doll 1850-1880. This book's title comes from Leon Casimir Bru who describes his wooden-bodied poupee as having a fully perfected grace. This expression works perfectly for the theme of the French fashion doll. At first the doll industry was failing but by 1867 there were more than 200 Paris shops that specialized in fashion dolls. A doll owner could find anything they needed, such as garters, gowns, gaiters, hoop, gloves, and hat boxes. However, today few objects remain. This book leads the doll collector in the right path to preserve those remaining examples.
