CONDITION: Generally Excellent! There are a couple of flakes on the front neck socket (view photos). Otherwise she has lovely smooth bisque with rich coloring, expert painting of delicate features, crisp modeling of inquisitive and loving face with huge blue eyes. The body in clean and sturdy condition with just a minor age wear at the joints and on the hands that have been touched-up. This stunningly pretty French Bebe by this little known maker has the look of a Mothereau, but the M mark is generally attributed to Mascotte. Her wonderful expression and closed mouth reflect the distinct appeal of the French Bebes of her period. A very special sweetheart of a doll!!!
