Highly Sought After 22" Jumeau 1907 By Gebruder Heubach
Wonderful in every way, this is one of the best examples of this doll I've ever had. Every few months I get a call from a collector desirous of one of these dolls and they usually sell privately before coming up to Rubylane- but here this beauty is. I love her presentation and facial painting all complimented by that dewy bisque. A rare beauty in excellent condition.
~Yes, she is even available on layaway! Take up to eight months to pay for this beauty. Call our office anytime at 718.859.0901 to discuss layaway terms or to hear an in hand description of her condition~
Pink Bisque socket head on a fully jointed and original French composition and wood body. (Gebruder Heubach was known for using pink tinted bisque on many of their dolls and the Heubach 1907 Jumeau is always found with pink bisque). Lovely watery blue paperweight eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, multi stroke light brown brows, open mouth with shading and accents, six upper teeth, pierced ears with earrings, lovely red mohair wig.
