Emile Jumeau Paris Bebe, 19.5 " tall
A very rare Emile Jumeau Paris Bebe on an original Stamped Jumeau body in excellent condition, beautifully dressed in her original dress, and cabinet size at 19.5" tall.
Emile Jumeau developed a design for a beautiful character Jumeau with a heart shaped face and large eyes, but the mold design was stolen by Danel et Cie Company and registered as his trademark. After Emile Jumeau won his intellectual property lawsuit against Danel for stealing his design, Jumeau made the Paris Bebe for a limited time in very limited quantity, especially limited are those with all Jumeau marked and signed parts. (When Jumeau won the lawsuit from Danel, they also got the parts and bodies Danel had, many with an Eiffel Tower mark) Some of the dolls Jumeau made after winning used these Danel parts, but this doll is entirely Jumeau with signed body and head. She is marked Paris Bebe, but some of the dolls made after Jumeau won the lawsuit were called Bebe Francais. I have named her an Emile Jumeau Paris Bebe, due to her markings. She is a very exceptional and beautiful, rare doll.
The doll has a pressed bisque socket head on a fully jointed Jumeau body stamped on the back Jumeau Medalle D'Or Paris, and it is in the original finish with no retouch. She is marked on the head : Paris Bebe Tete Deposee 8 (in red)
The beautiful smooth pressed bisque is without hairline, chips or damage. She has a cork pate.
Please note: There are strands of hair showing in the photos; thy are not cracks or any problem with the bisque.
The exquisite face has curved feathered brows, delicate eyelash strokes painted around her big spiral blue glass eyes. She has detail dots in the nostrils and inner eye corners, lavender eye shadow, shading and outlined lips with a closed mouth...a lovely heart shaped face with big eyes and a dainty little mouth with blushed cheeks, pierced ears with little crystal earrings.
Condition: Excellent smooth creamy bisque without hairlines, chips or damage, beautiful coloring and artistic delicate painting of facial features. The Jumeau fully jointed body is sturdy and original with its original finish and no re-paint. It is signed on the back (see marks)
Elegant blue silk original dress with blue and green embroidery on the bodice and pink ribbon piping, black velvet antique bonnet with pink ribbons, Tall taupe leather lace-up boots, dark stockings and original slip and pantalets. Blonde mohair wig. She is stunning with beautiful presence and big crystal blue eyes. At 19.5 inches, she is cabinet size but large enough to have a big impact in your cabinet and collection.
Marks: on head: Paris Bebe Tete Deposee 8 (in red) on body: Jumeau Medalle D'Or Paris
Overall, a very rare and beautiful cabinet size (19.5") Emile Jumeau Paris Bebe, a character Jumeau with a beautifully different Jumeau face, and a part of Jumeau history. (This face was created as a character after the 200 series of Jumeau.)
