~Fresh From Paris~ Early 16.5" Fashion Doll Poupee by Jumeau with Cobalt Eyes in Exquisite Gown
One of the best parts of traveling to Europe with my family has always been bringing back special antique doll treasures, and this beautiful Parisienne poupee is one of my favorite ladies that returned with us from our summer vacation to Paris this past month! I was so very taken with her face when I first saw her that I just could not put her down when I found her. She has a beautifully defined face with large, lush lips, HUGE blue cobalt eyes and delicate wheat colored multistroke brows that match her lovely swept back updo, all monochromatic in a beautiful matching antique silk dress (custom made for her by a master seamstress) and completed with an antique straw hat, there is nothing lacking in this lovely girl's presentation or presence. This very demure young lade is guaranteed to bring a little slice of Paris to your home when she arrives- we promise!
~This very lovely Parisienne is available on layaway! Take up to 10 months to pay for this beauty in equal payments. Just send us a note at checkout or give us a call at 718.859.0901 to hear an in hand description of her condition or to discuss layaway options.~
She has a luminous bisque socket head on her original bisque shoulderplate and on the original kid body. Delicately painted features including long branching dark lashes and lined dark eyecuts, beautiful large lips with accent painting, sweet demure nose, arched multistroke blond brows, large cobalt eyes and sweet blushing of cheeks. She looks simply divine! Body is in excellent original condition with only minor settling to the legs.
She is wearing a spectacular custom made dress that was constructed out of antique fabrics including a delightful fine grosgrain taupe silk, matched with a cafe-au-lait brocade silk with large dots. Delicately accented with a rose colored silk featherstitching and lace around the collar and interior of hem. Underneath she has a lovely lace trimmed half slip and a precious pair of pantaloons, along with a delightful set of antique leather button up boots and socks. Completed with a fabulous antique straw hat with lace trimming and a black velvet ribbon along with tons of antique flowers.
Condition: She is in very good condition, free of hairlines, cracks or restoration! There are a couple of minor things worth mentioning; there is the tiniest little flake visible at the neck socket of the shoulderplate, and at the very interior of the neck socket on the head there are two small chips and two tiny rubs, one on the cheek and one on the eyebrow that you have to look for to find. Otherwise the bisque is in excellent condition. Without these minor flaws, we'd be asking around $3200 for her because it is almost impossible to find these extraordinary early Jumeau poupees with cobalt eyes anymore. With her original kid body and wonderful expression, I know that she will be GONE soon at this enticing price with the layaway option! TBS 8/3/16
