Incredible Rare 24" Le Petit Pas Steiner
SUPER HOLIDAY SALE! It is not very often that these amazing beautiful Le Petit Pas key wound walking Steiners become available and this one is just incredible. She was made by Jules Steiner for a brief period of time and is in perfect working condition. When her original key is wound, her legs walk and she cries. This beauty stands 24" tall with gorgeous blue paperweight eyes surrounded by finely very long painted lashes, eyeshadow and artfully feathered brows. She has an open mouth, as all the Le Petit Pas Steiners do with outlined lips and molded teeth. Her fine delicate bisque is exceptional with pale coloring and a soft blush to her cheeks and blush on her chin. She has pierced ears and with a blush on the ear. She is marked A15 and stamped Le Parisien B.S.G.D.G A15. There are no hairlines or repairs to this fine delicate bisque. Her right ear has a tiny earhole flake. There is some color in the mold seams on her left side, a couple tiny white marks at her high forehead and a small pour mark (the same color as the bisque) on her far left cheek. These are completely in the making and most wouldn't consider them flaws.
This beautiful Bebe is on her original Le Petit Pas key wound walking body with it's original finish. This is a beautiful body has the original leather at her lower body connecting to her walking legs and original attached key. The Steiner stamp is on her left hip and she has straight wrists with the long slender Steiner fingers. There is a cry box in the back and the leather connecting the top and lower half of her torso for the box. This is all original and works perfectly. The beautiful body has some age wear to the finish and a couple craze lines on her fingers. Awesome!
The outfit on this beauty is simple out of this world! It is made of ivory antique silks with cording and lined. The jacket is amazing and has some age to the silk the silk also has some age to the silk but it only adds to the charm of the outfit. She has lovely antique underwear, shoes and shoes and her incredible hat is made of antique silks, tulle and lace! She has her original pate and beautiful antique blond mohair wig.
This beauty does not come along very often and she is an exceptional example of the Le Petit Pas! Not only with her larger size but her amazingly beautiful face! When will you find another and her price is way below her book price! I am offering her at a super sale price for the holiday. c. 1890
