A Darling Angel, this petite French Bebe Tete Jumeau wants to come home to you!!! She stands only 13.5" tall and is perfectly proportioned with much attention to detail. All the way from 1888, she has stood the test of time beautifully - she is perfect from her head to her toes!
This little bebe has the sweetest look with her great modeling and fabulous facial painting. Her BIG AMBER-BROWN GLASS PAPERWEIGHT EYES are so beautiful surrounded by thick dark eyeliner and lushly-painted dark lashes! Her painting is superb - she has brush-stroked brows and accented nostrils and eye corners. Her CLOSED "sweetheart" MOUTH has shaded, outlined lips. She wears her original, antique, LONG, ash-blonde mohair wig over her cork pate. She has her original marked french body and spiral head spring. Such a dear and she's in a great cabinet size!
Her Parisian Haute Couture dress and bonnet are made of the finest french lace exquisitely sewn onto a blush color silk bodice with pink ribbons galore! Her sleeves are ruched tulle and all is ruffled with ivory rosettes accenting the dress & bonnet - so frou-frou! - it is hard to describe all the detail. There is a lovely blush colored ostrich feather in her wired, stand-up bonnet - all silk and tulle and more rosettes. So much talent to create such a beautiful outfit. I have added her "pearl" earrings in her pierced ears. She wears her original french white socks and gorgeous antique keystone shoes, marked 1-1/2. Underneath she wears her all-in one and a slip.
Please Note: Her toys and "big sister" are not included in this sale.
