These are size #11 Pink Leather Presentation shoes with "gold leaf" writing on the bottom that were used by Jumeau when presenting their best Jumeau dolls. They are also the earlier Jumeau shoe without the Bumble Bee. The Bee came later. These were used on the earlier Tete Jumeaux with the straight wrists and were made before the others as you can see by the date of 1878. They are pink leather, with pink ribbon bows on the top and have both fancy steel cut button closures. These buttons are unique but must be original because there is no new threads or sewing. It must have been done specially. One button is slightly rusted, but still look great and sparkly. They are Presentation shoes, therefore, I guess they did these a little different, but beautifully. These shoes are strong and perfect, but as you can see, they have just a bit of patina, more inside than outside, but so do our dolls, lol. They are still pretty great!!! The soles are mint, clean and shiny and fully signed in GOLD LEAF writing, "BEBE JUMEAU, Medior 1878, PARIS DEPOSE" , They measure 3 1/2" in length by a little over 1 1/2" in width. These are very well priced.
