Wow! What a treasure! I want to show you our new arrival here at Emmie's. A splendid Roullet Decamps antique walking doll from France, circa 1893- 1910. She delighted little mommies in her day with her exciting new walking ability. A lovely antique French Bebe in working condition too! This 17" beauty queen is in excellent condition. She was very popular when introduced as Bébé Systême or L'Intrepide Bébé, She is marked R. DEP. Roullet used several companies to supply the dolls' heads. This one is obviously a pretty head by Fleischmann and Bloedel. This doll has a working wind up mechanism. She needs some coaxing to get started but her legs walk. The key is a replacement. Her body is in wonderful condition with all original paint and finish with the rarely found original cloth hip cover to allow hip movement. Her bisque is very good quality with no hairline cracks, restorations, damages. Love her huge deep blue eyes! Dolly is dressed in a beautiful cotton batiste dress with a lavish lace collar, iced with blue silk sash and bows. The coordinating bonnet sets off her blue eyes perfectly. She also wears cotton drawers, cotton socks, and antique shoes. An original antique French advertisement for this doll is pictured. She is priced to sell quickly. Don't miss this opportunity to make her your own!
