This is a beautiful 17” French bebe with closed mouth marked “M” possibly Mascotte, possibly Francois Marseille. She has a wonderful sweet, shy smile on her face. She has large almond shaped blue glass eyes with such a lovely thoughtful expression in them. Her bisque is free of hairlines or repair. Guaranteed. I have attached lighted photos.
The closed lips are beautifully outlined and shaded and her large expressive blue eyes are framed by long delicate lashes. She has accent marks at her inner eyes and nostrils and her bisque is lovely with subtle cheek shading. There is a minuscule red line right beside her mouth, not damage but an in the making flaw. Very insignificant and reflected in her price.
She is on her original French composition body with the original French department store label at her lower back. The hands have been repainted, and there is some repaint to the back of her calves. The neck opening is a bit rough with flaking to the paint. She is strung well and will pose nicely.
This beautiful mademoiselle is wearing a wonderful replaced red cotton dress in the French style with embroidered trim. Her antique wig is beautiful on her, and brings out her peaches and cream complexion and blue eyes. She has her original cork pate. She wears a full set of under clothes and antique shoes and socks.
She is incised at the back of her neck M 6. No hairlines or repair to the head, guaranteed. Some minor repaint and wear to the body as described above. In the making red line beside her lips. Her price reflects these minor issues. Still a stunning and unique doll!
