A doll is considered bisque if the head is made of bisque. It’s very heavy material and very difficult for play, this doll is for display not for play. It’s very fragile and expensive. Basically it’s unglazed porcelain molded into shape then baked in high temperatures in a “kiln” to form doll heads and doll
