Ooohh La La! Straight from France, a rare and fantastic find you will likely never come upon again! This beautiful 17.5” Jumeau, incised size 7 and in excellent condition without damage, hairlines, or repairs was found in a lidded, unlabeled wooden box the perfect size to carefully store her “gigantic-for-any-doll”, generational, 31 piece trousseau! I am flabbergasted at her history represented in not only her original moss green velvet dress, hat and underclothing but so many other factory and mama made items representing the change of styles over the years probably through the 1930's or 40's. In her travels she lost one sock so she wears vintage knit socks and mint antique shoes. Someone must have really loved the children that owned her as they passed her down through generations and contributed to her expanding belongings.
Each piece seems to fit her well. Please note the collage of her in most of her outfits. If you act quickly, you will have the thrill of the surprises when she models everything with pride and joy! I have presented her in what I believe would have been her original presentation dress and hat of moss green velvet with mint green grosgrain ribbon trim and bow. The little terrier dog is just a photo prop and not included.
The following is just a partial list of her 31 item trousseau:
Nightgown, 2 pair pantaloons, original full slip, two half slips, factory chemise missing some lace, burgundy corduroy coat with matching hat, 2 pinafores, 2 aprons, a short play suit, swim suit, period, frilly dotted white dress, Pink plaid dress, 3rd brown felt hat, yellow print dimity dress with pleated lace down the front, socks and shoes. Mixing and matching will likely produce more coordinated outfits.
Perhaps it was the last time she was played with before she was tucked away for at least another generation, that her brown human hair wig was sheared off short and jagged, to her utter dismay! It will be included but she smiled so sweetly showing her 6 beautiful, white, porcelain teeth in open mouth when I gave her a soft blond mohair wig to try on! You could just see the life in her blue paperweight eyes once again! In the photos you will see the details of her beautiful features skillfully applied and the earlier labeled Jumeau body with original finish and good stringing allowing her to hold a pose. There are some areas at the joints implying she was played with and dressed over and over again, but even her hands are so great for her actual age of close to 120 years.
The box measures 25” long X 9” wide and 6.25” high with the separate lid on.
