Some Doll History: When antique bisque dolls began appearing in France during the 1850s, their matte finish offered a realistic alternative to the glossy china dolls popular at the time. Though both types of dolls were made from porcelain, collectors refer to antique unglazed tinted dolls as bisque dolls and antique shiny glazed dolls as china dolls, while the term porcelain is often reserved for modern contemporary dolls rather than antique porcelain dolls.
