Which one of your darling Jumeau Bebes is ready for a spectacular new corset? Modeled here on our lovely Size 11 Tete Jumeau, this corset is suitable for any moderately chunky bisque doll, offering instant class and elegance. It comes from c.1892, when the stamped Tete Jumeau made its first appearance, so it is fitting for it to be modeled on her! It is made from a sturdy white cotton, maintaining its original crisp and stark color, with only minor age wear. Eighteen industrial eyelet define this corset as a wonderful find, along with the original tie that is relatively sturdy. The edges by the armholes are scalloped trimmed, while the reinforced shoulder straps offer extra stability. This is one piece you cannot pass up if you collect fine corsets for your ladies. As the years go on, pieces like these become rarer and rarer as they undergo the test of time, and a rare example like this, above the standard Jumeau corset, instead a luxury accessory, will make a most prized piece for any bebe. ~Love our model?
