Seeking information for rare wax doll King louis XVI

by Stan Filipiak
(La Crosse, WI USA)

I found a doll that may have been made in 1754 for Louis XVI. The card that came with it states the following. Louis XVI portrait doll

In 1754 this wax portrait doll was given as a gift at the baptism of the child Louis. It is dressed in a copy of the clothes he wore, covered with gold embroidery and pearls.

Many years after the French revolution it was found in a religious home in Avignon, France, where it was used as the infant Jesus.

I would be willing to sell this to you or sell it on your website. I really am looking for answers. Could this be real? I sell on ebay as you can see in my email address but would rather sell to a legitimate collector. Thank you Stan
