Beautiful polished pink cotton antique dress for german doll or french bebe! This dress is a wonderfully elaborate, factory made confection for a doll of about 21-24" in height. It has a bertha collar with wonderful trims and lace insert in the bodice and lace accents on the skirt. It is modeled on a portrait Jumeau body which is 17" tall. This body has a hand spread of 2" and it just fits over her hand and won't go any larger. The dress is 15" long and can be worn anywhere from just below the knee to ankle length. Typically this type of dress was meant to be a little longer. Since there is no waist, it's an easier fit than many. The fabric is a lovely pink polished cotton and is very sturdy. It has some very minor darkened areas which are not at all obvious in person, but show up a little bit in the pictures. No holes or splits and generally very good condition for it's age. This would work well for a size 9 or 10 Jumeau, possibly even an 11 if she's a little thinner or doesn't have straight wrists. Would be great on a Steiner or Schmitt bebe or a german child such as a Kestner or Simon and Halbig or Sonnenberg belton type. Great authentic antique doll dress, hard to find in this condition and style!
