Your antique dolls are special – we know just how much they mean to you, and we know how important it is to have them dressed fashionably! Fit for a 1907 French Jumeau, or a similarly-sized German antique bisque head doll, we have here a lovely vintage outfit set: a full silk cream top coat with matching silk bonnet, and a cream organdy cotton windowpane dress. The top coat is dated to the 1920s, and is constructed from a lovely smooth, cream-colored silk, with a round-edged fold-over collar, with delicate insertion stitching, and flowery embroidery. It features a double metal snap button closure, with a 3-by-2 round-topped glass button set as faux closure. The long sleeves have fold-over cuffs, with insertion stitching as well. Overall, it is a fine, fashion-forward piece, with sleek simplicity. The dress is a cream organdy cotton, with a window-pane pattern for a touch of texture that pairs well with the coat. It has a twelve-button back closure, with seven rows of horizontal tucking down the skirt. Two rows of tucking decorate the long sleeves, along with scalloped edge lace trimming. Finally, the outfit is completed by a lovely silk cream bonnet with embroidery trimming. This whole piece is truly a fashionable set for your best French Jumeau, and will skyrocket her presentation value in your collection.

**We now ship EVERY SINGLE ONE of our antique costume pieces in archival, museum quality, acid free tissue paper. We store them in an acid free, climate controlled environment, because we want you to get a textile that has been frozen in time. As curators of these antiques, we want them to be as fresh for the next generation of students and enthusiasts as they were for us. This is factored into the price of our merchandise. We hope you can enjoy these rare finds for years to come, and we want to make sure that when they reach you, they are ready for careful love and display if you so chose, or to be stored in a destruction-free paper. Happy shopping!**
