This is a No. 9 antique Jumeau doll that stands at 20 1/2" tall. She has brown eyes, a nice pale bisque, closed mouth and a serene, tender expression!
Her markings on back of head (red stamp):
V I Vlll
She does have a faint hairline crack that begins at top crown of head and extends to corner of right eye. Very difficult to see, but present. There is also a paint flake off a itty bitty part of side forehead, again barely visible. There is slight rubbing on her eyebrows; please refer to photos! Ears are pierced and there is the tiniest flake off the hole in her pierced ear.
Her composition ball jointed body does show general signs of wear at joints, neck and the bottoms of her feet. Her tummy has an indentation. I don't know if her hands are original but all fingers present. Her hands have been repainted. She is however; a lovely doll and if she were in 'perfect' condition, she would command a much higher price with her closed mouth and beautiful facial features!
Included is ensemble I created just for her:
LORITA COHEN ORIGINAL DOLL COUTURE
Wig and outfit will have my sewn on, woven garment label.
100% SILK antique Olive Green couleur fabric. Dress, Jacket; properly lined, fitted with darts and extensive hand stitching, French seams and vintage ecru lace & black velvet trim. I also designed and made her corset with tiny metal eyelets, real boning; half slip and camisole. Looks beautiful displayed just in her feminine 'underwear' with gorgeous REAL MOHAIR AUBURN hand-sewn curly tresses wig that I lovingly designed, hand-made just for her peachy pale complexion.
She doesn't have a pate; I just balled up some tissue to stuff in her head and wig rests nicely on top. Her boots are all leather, old store stock made by artist, LENORE. Both uppers and soles are LEATHER and are STAMPED. Replaced delicate black stockings.
There's a 100% silk ivory bow with a doll-sized pin on her hair. You'll also receive 2 doll hangers and 2 tiny wooden clothes pins should you wish to change out her outfit.
