All wooden Bleuette parts have been treated with linseed oil. It darkened the wood more than I had hoped but wood can't be left unfinished and regular varnish would wear out of the joints very soon and leave them looking ugly.

This is just wonderful! Where did you get the wooden doll parts? I love the rich glow of the wood, and your painted face is much prettier than original Bleuette :-)

She is lovely! I have found that, on light wood, linseed oil looks darker at first but fades back after a while. It is a MUCH nicer finish than varnish. I use it every couple of years on my lighter wooden girls, for the darker ones, I use a smear of teak oil it keeps their 'complexions' smooth. .
