(note the widow's peak - a hall mark of the early Huret dolls) and original jointed gutta percha body with

THE HISTORICAL CONTEXT

In France, the 19th century was known as the
"long century." It was a time of political turbulence,
extending from the French Revolution to World
War I. But it was also a century of great progress, as
demonstrated by the wonderful Expositions that took
place throughout the 1800s. The ones in the first half
of the century were primarily French in nature, but the
second half saw five world fairs in Paris. All of these
play an important part in the Huret family story.

THE HURET FAMILY

Leopold Huret, the father, was famous in his own
right. Initially a clock maker, he is best known for his
work as a locksmith - padlocks, combination locks,
portfolio locks and keyholes. He had contracts with
the government - Postal Service, Ministry of Finance.

He became "Mechanic and Engineer of the King." He
won various medals at the National Expositions that
regularly took place in Paris. He later diversified into
metal furniture (it was this business that eventually
lead to the miniature furniture being made for the
dolls). Louis-Francois Beffara, the great uncle, is best
known for his research and writings on Moliere. He
had a lead role in the lives of the four Huret children,
especially after their mother died. The siblings were
very close. None of them ever married and they
lived together nearly all their lives. All of them were
involved in the family businesses to a greater or
lesser extent. Adelaide Calixte, (known as Calixte),
took the lead on the doll business, supported by
her sister Olympe Louise Leopoldine (known as
Olympe). Leopold (Junior) took over from his father
and was central to the furniture business.
