Come join the doll fun and search Tax Return in our shop to see all who qualify!~
An outstanding, all original example in her pique costume with additional blue silk bebe dress, we just don't have enough words to describe this wonderful girl's costume and accessories, undergarments, chapeaux- but above all her wonderful face. With the most desirable, dramatic Leon Casimire Bru trademark face, this bebe has the careful modeling and expression of a cherub, about to bestow a kiss upon her favorite friend. Those watery blue eyes hold so many secrets, her soft, generous lips seem as though they are about to turn up into a delicate smile... I am utterly in love with this doll, and I know that her new mamma or pappa will be equally elated with her outstanding quality, presentation, and overall beauty. We are pricing her very reasonably due to her smaller size and minuscule finger repair, but truly, if you buy one doll this year, this would be a most memorable purchase. She is offered with the highest order of gifts and guarantees that we offer with the purchase of our dolls, Courronne Platin, because you simply will not find a better Bru anywhere else, with all that this incredible little lady will bring to her new home. We will even offer personal delivery at many east coast doll shows and events; feel free to email us for specifics.
~Mademoiselle Bru is offered on our customizable layaway plan! Contact our office for layaway details or to discuss the purchase, or just let us know at checkout that you need time to pay.
