Les Miniatures de Béatrice...

My name is Béatrice Thiérus  and I live in France near Fontainebleau  (famous for its wonderful palace) about 80km south of Paris. I make and sell miniature 1/12th scale porcelain dolls.

At first, I started decorating bigger and bigger dolls houses and I enjoyed making them “alive “, I began dressing up the dolls themselves.  Now, I make the dolls entirely and I create miniature scenes.

I always love fashion, especially past times where women were so elegant! I find my inspiration in books, paintings... but it is always "my" dolls who determine the period that I must chose.

My passion for history, fashion, old costumes, painters and traditions is my main source of inspiration for my dolls.  I do take great care painting the dolls to get an expressive face.

The dolls have always shoes and underclothes, using finest silks and antique French laces and ribbons for the clothes.

I now have a small range of accessories - jewels, shoes, purses - and hope to develop more in the future.

I sell my work in my CDHM gallery ,

on my website:

I am happy to undertake commissions.

This year, I will be present on several fairs in Europe.


All my work is one of a kind - you will get a unique creation.
