Box with white and red colored print surface, with Tapisserie frontal label, slightly fafed. Opens up on a sturdy hinge to reveal the interior contents. Comes with a beautiful little French bisque Bebe, standing at 4.75”, in her original costume, with dark glass eyes and painted features. Original blond wig and silk top and lace skirt, with painted high-heeled shoe feet. Comes with a blue sampler for cross-stitching; tapestry wooden loom parts and card; white and brown threads for weaving; various assorted little beads; other parts and resources. There may be one or two pieces either missing or not included with the original set, such as pins, which would have been needed.
Measurements: 7.75" in depth 11.25" in width, 2.75" in height
Condition: Generally excellent! The little doll is in excellent shape, in her all original costume. The set of goodies is in great shape, however, there are a few pieces missing, such as pins, and possibly the wooden comb for the loom. There is some age wear to the exterior of the box, but nothing structurally threatening. The interior is largely untouched, even with the original tie in ribbons and threads in most places. We just don't find these treasures every day! If you have any specific questions, or would like more detail photographs, don't hesitate to ask. We would be happy to provide them.
