EJ Bebe Intrepide
An amazing, rare, breathtaking EJ Bebe. Emile Jumeau made this doll for Roullet et Decamps. She has a walker mechanism that works well. .when you walk her along, one leg will swing out in front, and then the other, as if she is walking with you. She is 23" tall, big enough to make a beautiful statement with her gorgeous presence.
Her face is stunning, with big brown glass paperweight eyes, dark eyeliner, lushly painted lashes, mauve eyeshadow, feathered brush-stroked eyebrows, shaded nostrils, a lovely closed mouth with shaded and accented lips, pierced ears with pretty earrings, a golden blonde mohair wig over her original cork pate, an original French composition and wood fully jointed body, with kid leather covered hinging at hips for the walker mechanism, which allows legs to swing forward. The walking system was deposed by Roullet et Decamps in 1892. The bisque head was made by Emile Jumeau; this is the second version of the model.
She is wearing a beautiful original antique green silk gown with a lace overskirt, and a matching hat , undergarments, stockings and black leather French shoes.
Value Points: A rare model with full L'Intrepide markings on the head, in a fine state of preservation and a very lovely face and original costume.
Marks: L'INTREPIDE RD Bres. G. DE with several checkmarks
Condition: Excellent. The bisque head has been lit; there are no hairlines, cracks, chips, or restorations. The bisque is lovely. The original neck spring is in place; the original body is in excellent condition and the walker mechanism works well.
I offer lay-away (3 or 4 payments). Please let me know prior to purchasing if you choose the lay away option.
