HOLD FOR M. Dreamy 26" Closed Mouth Jumeau Bebe
Due to a cancelled layaway, this beautiful doll is being relisted. She has never left my shop. This beauty is such an amazing example of the fine French Bebe's that Jumeau was known for! She is a big 26" tall with the finest quality you will ever see in a Jumeau. She has gorgeous blue paperweight eyes, surrounded by expertly painted long lashes and the beautiful feather Jumeau brows. Her lovely outlined mouth is closed with a hint of a smile. She is exquisite bisque and delicate coloring. Her ears are pierced and she has an antique wig and cork pate. This beauty is marked DEPOSE Tete Jumeau B te SGDG 12. There are no hairlines or repairs to this beautiful head. There is a small pink paint smudge on her high left forehead and two tiny black dots on her lower neck, these are in the making and not considered flaws.
She is on her lovely marked Jumeau fully jointed composition body with it's original finish. This is a wonderful very chunky body and is in beautiful condition except for a small repair on her right lower calf and just a bit of age wear.
Her French Bebe outfit is lovely! The French style jacket and dress is expertly made of lovely antique royal blue silks and antique laces. She has antique underwear, socks and shoes. Her gorgeous hat is a work of art and made of antique silks and patterned ribbons with antique lace. She has a beautiful blond mohair antique wig and cork pate.
This is absolutely the dreamiest and most beautiful Jumeau you will ever see. She is such a big girl with an amazing presence and will be the center of any fine collection! c. 1890
