When it comes to collecting in the antique doll world, a bisque Bebe's presentation is just as much due to her costume as it is her face and condition. This antique costume set is one example of the delightful springtime ensemble that will really make any bebe pop: a beautifully and expertly-crafted piece designed from the ground up to ensure that your prized big girl looks her best when she is on display. Crisp and clean white organdy cotton makes up both the dress and bonnet; the dress has wonderful eyelet lace trim at the bottom in flower-like patterns, and many columns of tucking down the front, to give a pleasant textured look, while blue insertion ribbons add a splash of cool color. The bonnet is just as fabulous -- perhaps even more so, with the countless eyelet designs along the bonnet rim, casting a wide halo around the face of any bisque beauty you choose to wear it. The two pieces complement each other perfectly, and it shouldn't be hard for you to find a big dolly who doesn't look fabulous adorned in this set! This ensemble should fit a doll between 26-33" depending on how long her socks and undies are.
Measurements: Dress: 17" Length, 8" Sleeve Length (from shoulder seam) Height of Model: 32.5" Circumference of Model's Head: 16"
Condition: Excellent. The set is near perfect, with a beautiful white color pretty much untarnished by age or wear, with delicate designs in the embroidery and lace. The dress and bonnet are excellent, with no threading or damage, and barely any age wear at all. This is a set that has been pulled straight out of time, and brought directly to you!
**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!**
