Mysterious Dolly

Hello - I am trying to raise money for my Father and I decided to dig deep and sell off some items.

I have had this doll for years and thought it was cool because it had springs. Someone told me it was about 1895 - French. It has French tag on dress and a French cross of Lorraine around its neck.

The back of the head is kinda dented in which I was also told was a signature or mark.

It was mentioned that it resembled baby Jesus in the manger and these were given as gifts? Then someone else suggested it was from around 1915?

I am so confused and I need to sell it. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated - Thank you

This baby does look like the Baby Jesus from a crèche; such dolls, also called devotional dolls, have been made of wax in France for sometime. I can't tell from the photo, but some dolls like this sell for up to $200 in good to fair shape, but closer to $75 might be a good price. Try posting on etsy.com; they are user friendly. Good Luck!
