19" Antique French Bisque Bru Jne Bebe Teteur Nursing Bru with chocolate blue glass set paperweight eyes retaining the original mohair lashes. Her open O-shaped mouth, rosey chubby cheeks, and curly skin wig over cork pate give her a sweet baby look. The head is marked Bru Jne 8 below the key which activates the nursing mechanism when turned. The rubber ball would depress, then inflate allowing Bebe Teteur to suck the liquid from her bottle. Rubber is now hardened.
The Paul Girard era (1890 on) is jointed composition and wood with original finish, ink stamped Bebe Bru No. 8 on the back torso. The scalloped kid band has the original Bru paper label. Pull strings activate the Mama Papa cryer!
This doll has no damage and no repair.
She is dressed in an ankle length lace trimmed white cotton dress and full underset representing a young, just learning to walk, child. Her soft kid baby shoes are trimmed in pink silk ribbon.
