Verdier & Gutmacher was founded on June 1898 by Etienne Rodolphe Verdier and Sylvian Gutmacher. They lasted only two years, and in 1900 the company was closed. Therefore, V.G. dolls are extremely rare.
This firm was the successor of André Thuillier and has made only open mouth dolls with typical bodies. This doll is very interesting and quite difficult to find.
Bisque bebe from this company bears uncanny resemblance to late model bebe by Andre Thuillier.
The explanation offered, namely that the heads during the Thuillier were made by the Gaultier porcelain works, does not explain the resemblance of the bodies, which are identical.
