We offer this very nice, large antique French wood and composition fully jointed doll body for a bisque head that makes a 26-28 inch French bebe doll. The number "12" is incised on the bottom of each foot. The original patina is present except at the ball joint on the right shoulder and on the left hand which appears to have very professional repair and repaint. The paint is chipping on the palm of that hand. This body is very chunky and quite heavy. The upper legs and arms are wood and the remaining parts are composition. The neck opening measures 2 inches across. There is a slight crack on the back of the shoulder near the neck opening that probably was due to tight stringing at some time. This is in no way threatening to the stability of the body. There is very little wear even at the joints. This is a very beautiful French bebe body.
