What a glamorous princess this darling FG is! She has the most adorable face ever and just can't take a bad picture. This darling was made by Gaultier and is just as French as you can get. She is 19" tall with beautiful smoldering brown paperweight eyes, surrounded by finely painted lush lashes and feathered brows. She has an almost pouty closed mouth, pierced ears and lovely bisque with delicate coloring. She is marked FG in the Scroll 7. There are no hairlines to this bebe. She does have earlobe repairs with overpaint on both ears due to earhole chips. This has been well done and won't show, only if you light her head. She has a tiny mark on her forehead, probably in pouring..this is in the making and not a flaw.
This darling is on a lovely French body with a working crier. The fully jointed body has it's original finish. There appears to be a touch up on her hands but it is very well done. There is some age wear to the body.
She is wearing a wonderful French dress made of antique silk fabrics. The top silk fabrics are melting and shredding in areas but the dress is still just stunning and is sturdy underneath. She has a matching hat, antique underwear, socks and vintage shoes. Her lovely blond mohair wig is a high quality replacement and she has her original cork pate.
What a gorgeous FG Bebe! She is the perfect example of a French princess! c. 1890
