This darling little bebe has brown paperweight almond shaped eyes, closed pale pink lips, original blonde mohair wig over cork pate, straight wrist 8 ball portrait signed body. Her painting is the soft lovely style of early Emile Jumeau bebes.
She wears a couture cobalt blue silk and lace costume and straw hat by a Dutch seamstress, with antique blue silk shoes marked with a number. She is the transitional model between the first Jumeau bebe, the Premier and the second Jumeau bebe, the Portrait. Some of these transitional models have exceptionally large eye cuts and eyes as this one does. Her painting is exquisite and her early pressed bisque head is very fine.
Condition: No cracks, chips, hairlines or restoration. There is a tiny spot of discolor in the inner corner of her left eye as the picture attempts to show. Her body has some early repaint.
If you would like her in the pale green silk costume she came to me in with white faux leather boots instead of the blue costume you may deduct $500. from the purchase price. Contact me if this is what you would like and I will adjust the price accordingly.
Layaway available at full price.
