What a lovely little lady this is. This sweet Bebe was made my the French firm Roulette Et Decamps. They were best known for making Automata display dolls using doll heads by Jumeau Kestner and Simon Halbig. They also made a few French Bebe dolls using Jumeau as their supplier for the heads. This Is a wonderful example of their sweet Bebe. She is 19" tall With brown original human hair wig. Deep brown glass eyes and her original French made unstamped body. My guess is the firm made the body and Jumeau supplied the heads for them with R.D markings. the head is incised L INTREPIDE R.D r SGDG 8 it has Jumeau artist/maker slash marks as shown. I also have a pic of the markings shaded over with lead pencil to read more clearly if you want to se it let me know. NO damage to the head there is a factory firing dot from an air bubble on her for head above the left eyebrow. It is not a chip it is raised and fired that way originally. The doll wears a pretty pink silk dress with matching bonnet, CM marked French Shoes... Original under garments as well. One shoe has a repaired strap/tie. Socks are replacements but very pretty and appropriate to the doll. She makes an impressive and beautiful presentation. Free shipping in USA
