This wonderful Bebe Francais by Jumeau is a joy to behold. It is more difficult to find this super French Bebe in a size 12 (25 inches) and even rarer to find one with straight legs for walking. This amazing doll has huge blue paperweight eyes that give her a magical 19th century look. Her beautiful, pale bisque is without hairline, crack or restoration and her original walker body with straight wrists is in excellent condition. The head is incised B12F with Jumeau check marks.
She wears a beautiful burgundy costume which is edged in velvet. It has velvet triangular detail with covered buttons and also ruched strips on the sleeves in velvet. The central section around the hips is gathered with a velvet edged bow detail added. Her wonderful bonnet is fully gathered with wax flower decoration and a silk satin ribbon ruffle. (This costume is much deeper and richer in colour than the photos show). She has a very long blonde human hair wig, made in France and original underwear and socks. Although her shoes have been made to match the costume she will be sold with an additional pair of antique brown leather shoes with brown ribbon rosette decoration. Her brooch has a picture of a little lady in a similar costume which has been made from butterfly wings. This, beautifully dressed, young French girl with a heart shaped face and huge eyes..... is a stunner!
