LAYAWAY FOR COLLEEN This 27 inch tall doll, circa the 1880s-90s, was manufactured in Paris, France, by Maison Jumeau. The large size 12 doll has a closed mouth and beautiful brown paperweight eyes. She bears the red stamp on the back of her neck along with the check mark signature of her artist. Her dark blonde, high-quality, human hair wig is extra long and may be original. The bisque on this doll is lovely with artistic facial painting. The Jumeau Tetes vary considerably in look and presence. This beautiful doll conveys a lively and pleasing personality and the presence of the best Jumeaus of this model. The head is in excellent condition except for a short hairline crack on the forehead that probably occurred many years also. This is completely hidden under the wig and is quite stable. The doll also has a small firing flaw on her left ear. Neither flaw detracts from her display. Miss Jumeau retains her original body with minor repaint. She comes to you in antique underclothing and is all ready to be dressed by her new owner.
