This is such an extremely rare opportunity to own a size 4 first series antique portrait Jumeau bebe. She is 24" tall and a stunning beauty. Early portraits in this large size are rarely seen. She has her original straight wristed body with large hands and gorgeous, full, curly antique mohair wig. Her pressed bisque head is beautifully painted with mauve eye shadow, fine feathered eyebrows and delicately lined lips on her closed mouth. I love the perfectly formed chin with slight dimple seen on these bebes.
She is wearing a replaced, but lovely dress and old straw hat which has damage at the back, but still frames her face beautifully. She has what appears to be her original pantaloons.
Her head has had repair in the forehead area. Under close examination, it appears that there may have been an eye chip repair on the lower left lid. This isn't visible in person, but in a magnified picture it looks like there may have been a small re-touch. There is airbrushing over wig pulls on the crown around the opening. Contact me for more picture of the repairs, I can't add any more pictures to the listing. The facial features are untouched and all original (with the possible exception of a few eyelashes). Her body has wear to the joints and some repairs, but is her original body and is sturdy and complete.
If you have always wanted a large, early portrait Jumeau, this is a great opportunity to own one for a much reduced price due to her repair. She is a treasure! 6 month layaway is available on this doll, please contact me for details and also if you need more pictures or have international shipping questions.
