Due to a cancelled layaway, this lovely doll is being relisted. I think this absolutely beautiful French Bebe is one of the prettiest PG's I have ever seen. She is completely wonderful and much harder to find, especially as pretty as this girl! She was made by the French firm of Pintel & Godchaux. This darling bebe had huge blue paperweight eyes surrounded by long finely painted lashes and beautiful feathered brows. She has exceptionally pretty bisque and coloring. Her well modeled mouth is open with molded teeth. She has pierced ears with antique earrings. She is marked C P 9 G DEPOSE. There are no hairlines or repairs to this pretty doll. There is a small unevenness on her forehead, it is simply in the molding and the color of the bisque. Completely in the making and not a flaw. There is a teeny paint miss oh her left nostril, again in the making. There is a tiny earhole flake on both ears.
This lovely bebe is on a wonderful fully jointed French body with it's original finish, except for the hands which have a repaint. This nice body has a Jumeau label and it was common to find PG's on Jumeau bodies. There is normal age wear and some composition loss on her right foot toes but all in all a wonderful French body.
She is wearing the most darling antique red and cream plaid cotton dress with antique laces. I love this dress! She has the cutest little vintage kitty sewn on the front of the dress and a gorgeous vintage straw hat with lace and flowers (the hat that she is pictured in was sold by mistake but she has a similar vintage straw replacement one). She has vintage underwear, antique socks and shoes. Her beautiful long blond mohair wig is vintage and she has a replaced cork pate. She is carrying a darling vintage basket with flowers.
I love this darling French Bebe! She is such a very special PG, there is such great presence with this bebe and those gorgeous eyes! c. 1890
